The weather has turned cool in Mississippi, but there are a few last tomatoes hanging on some home vines.  At the Communal Skillet this week, they'll show you how to make a quick and easy tomato pie from the Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook.  Pie crust, tomatoes, bacon, cheddar, basil and mayo: it all combines for a delicious lunch.  Or dinner.  Or game day party appetizer.  You choose.

Need another appetizer idea for the hungry crowds watching football in your living room?  At the Cookbook Blog, Noah, has made hot sausage balls using a recipe by SFA friends Vance and Julie Vaucresson, who own Vaucresson's Sausage Company in New Orleans.
