I don’t know about you, but I wilt in this miserable hot weather! Its really too warm to do much, except read a good book. Come to think of it that’s what I do in the winter when its too cold to go anywhere too! Maybe I’m just not too motivated to do house work anymore. It’s such a useless cycle, just gets dusty and you start all over. My priorities have definitely changed through the years. Nowadays I like to keep meals on the simple side unless I am going to have guests.
Today I am sharing a easy and seasonal recipe for you, enjoy!
Garlic and Herb Tomatoes:
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
5 fresh thyme sprigs
1 pound small red, yellow, and/or orange cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh tarragon
1/2 tsp. sea salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
In a large skillet, heat olive oil, garlic and thyme over medium-high heat until hot. Add the tomatoes and toss to coat in the olive oil. Cook until the tomatoes’ skin splits but they have not burst, 5-6 minutes. Sprinkle the tarragon and salt over the tomatoes. Remove the pan from the heat, crack pepper over the top and serve.
Makes 4 servings.
Stay cool and have a great week!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
