Finally, my maters are ripening up. I planted three tomato plants this year along with some herbs. The plants have a large amount of fruit on them…but they have been slow to turn red. One of my favorite ways to eat tomatoes is roasted. MMmmm..mmm.mmm..mmM! You can do so much with them. once you have roasted them. Soup, bruschetta, pasta sauce, salads, pizza, or if you are like me I just eat them fresh off the pan…they are lucky if they make it to any other recipe. And the smell, is heavenly. It is really simple. And you know what I am sure you could freeze them for a later date. I never have…they never make it past the day I have roasted them.
My mom is Oregon for the summer, but somehow her hand appeared in my kitchen. Weird. Right there in my picture viewer was my mothers hand. It haunts me this hand. I poured some salt in my mothers hand and sprinkled it semi generously over the tomatoes.
