Oooo La la...Yummy Tomatoes!

This is a yummy dish that I made myself for lunch today. I made the "no cook" tomato sauce last evening and this morning when I opened the refrigerator door the savory aroma of garlic wafted through the cabin. I could barely wait until lunch time to give it a taste!
If any of you have access to fresh tomatoes I highly recommend this quick and easy recipe. I got it from one of the Sunday magazines a few weeks ago (along with the baked tomato recipe). I will give it to you here, but without any actual amounts, since I don't have the actual recipe with me. I didn't exactly follow the instructions anyway. :<)


Ripe tomatoes
kosher salt
ground black peppercorns
fresh basil (cut into fine strips)
crushed garlic cloves (I used a lot of this!)
extra virgin olive oil

Cut up your tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic and basil. Lightly toss with olive oil. Cover bowl with clear wrap and let sit at room temp for 4 hours.

That's all there was to it. I also roasted tomato slices last night to freeze, but used too much olive oil so they never got quite dry. They taste delicious though so I ate a few and froze the rest anyway. I'm sure they'll come in handy in a future recipe.

Well that's all for the happy homemaker today. he he. Wish my sweetie was here to enjoy my creations fresh. You all have a great weekend. Blessings & love, Cassie

I love this sauce idea...sounds much more delicious than the traditional type sauce. I am sure you will make it again for Patrick...if he is good anyway.
Happy Friday,
