Between my garden and my mom’s, Jesse and I picked over three dozen tomatoes. That’s a lot of tomatoes. That’s a lot of two tomatoes for two people to eat.
After giving tomatoes to the neighbors, we still had tomatoes coming out of our ears. Ok, that’s gross. Spilling out of the vegetable basket! That sounds better.
Jesse turned to the internet for some tomato recipes, particularly a breakfast recipe that uses tomatoes. In the process, Jesse discovered http://whiteonricecouple.com/food/, which is my new favorite read.
For breakfast on Saturday, we made Baked Tomatoes with Cheese, yum! (http://whiteonricecouple.com/recipes/baked-tomatoes-recipe)
I sliced the tomatoes in half, and then sprinkled them with ground pepper, sea salt, and fresh herbs (basil and oregano). Then I topped it with Parmesan cheese.
This is a recipe that we will definitely repeat, but I need to figure out how to de-liquify the tomatoes a bit. They were a bit juicier than I would like, making the bagel a little too soggy for me (who gets weirded out by texture).
We also made the Thai Tea recipe (http://whiteonricecouple.com/recipes/thai-tea-recipe/) which was good, but I need to perfect it a little: stronger tea, less ice, and more half-n-half.
Now, Jesse’s making bruschetta, and I’m off to enjoy a glass of wine on this gorgeous Sunday afternoon.
