Cold temperatures are creeping back into our forecasts in Lubbock but did you know there are still some great tasting tomatoes that are still in season? Corporate Dietician with the United Family of Stores, Brenda Duby, stopped by the studio today to talk about Blush tomatoes and also a great fundraiser this weekend.

Blush tomatoes will remind you of cherry tomatoes and taste like you just picked them off the vine. Duby suggested using Blush tomatoes as a Christmas appetizer. Duby said use the Blush tomato with mini mozzarella balls, some basil, and ham. Stick a toothpick through them, and you have a great snack!

Duby also reminded listeners that United Express and the Kids Club are teaming with Lubbock Special Olympics for Cookies with Santa. The event happens Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Tickets cost $5 and benefit Special Olympics.

Watch the video above for more details on Blush tomatoes and Cookies with Santa!
