The wind is rising,
When I found some good looking cherry tomatoes, I brought them home and thought bout it for a day or two. I finally decided to slice them in half and put them into a shallow baking pan and sprinkled a few finely diced rosemary leaves over the top.
then everything drizzled with EVOO and put the pan into a slow oven to roast. It was left there for about 4 hours at 300 degrees F. which was long enough for the flavors to meld.
Meanwhile, I sliced up a small, rustic loaf of Italian bread and drizzled each slice with EVOO.
So wonderful, I’ve had it for supper, several times, in the last week. The tomatoes are also good when added to soups, stews, scrambled eggs. I’m still finding out ways to use the roasted tomatoes and have frozen one batch to use later.
The Food Network Magazine has been around ages but I just discovered it recently and have read it cover to cover. It’s great and has recipes from a wide variety of folks as well as recipes pertinent to the season. I subscribed and want to give a year’s subscription to someone. Preference goes to followers…meaning only those who follow my blog are eligible to win. It’s not that I’m trying to gain more followers, I’m saying thanks to those who are followers.
The October issue has lots of lovely pumpkin recipes, apple recipes and bread recipes. November’s issue has lots of Thanksgiving recipes and Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa on the cover. Her latest cook book is Make It Ahead, and I’m all about making it ahead. My favorite kitchen tools are my slow cooker, enameled covered cast iron and plain cast iron cookware. I’m not sure I could do without any of those; surely don’t want to imagine trying!
