My vice is sweet cherry tomatoes, that I buy in bulk, and pop into my mouth like pieces of ruby red candy. I keep them in a bowl on the counter for quick accessibility and as an easy option if I’m at all tempted by sugar and salty bits that hide in my pantry. But sometimes I don’t get to my red little lovers in time. They start to shrivel and lose their peak flavor. So that’s when I give them a light bath in olive oil, a hit of salt and pepper, toss into the toaster oven and roast to a slightly browned, sweetened version of their former selves to add to salads and pastas. If they even make it that far, because they’re still a darn good snack!
I do the same thing, except with grape tomatoes instead of straight-up cherries. Such an amazing snack!
Love you for having me! You know you’re one of my blog favorites!! XOXOXOXO to my cherry tomato: FauxMartha!
Love it I also keep a bowl of cherry tomatoes on my counter and am always so bummed when I don’t get to them in time. I’ll give this a try next time!
Oh, that’s a very good idea! I do the same (cherry tomatoes), and keep them in a pretty yellow bowl that cheers up the kitchen.
Thats a good idea, red and yellow 🙂
