Every couple of days I've been going out into the garden and coming back with these ...
I didn't realise cherry tomato plants were that productive. I wash them and put the bowl on the dining table and the kids snack on them throughout the day. The normal tomatoes are going well too. So far we've had tomatoes in salads, made tomato relish and fresh tomato pasta sauce which made enough for dinner plus two lots for the freezer. The sauce is really easy. Just heat a tbs oil in a pan over medium heat, add some crushed garlic and lightly brown, peel and chop your tomatoes, put them in the saucepan, cook up for about 30 mins over low heat, then add a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh herbs. It's a lovely light tomato sauce ... we had it with ricotta and spinach agnolotti.
Now it's time to go out a pick another lot of tomatoes and I'm wondering what to do with this lot ... suggestions?
If you're looking for a quick and easy weeknight meal, tonight we had Cook’s Illustrated’s Chicken Curry in a Hurry (scroll down to the bottom of the post) ... so, so easy and tasty ... plus the kids ate it ... although I won't lie and say it was without complaining.
