It seems hard to believe that it already has the feel of the end of summer. School supplies are on sale in the stores, we have some leaves on the trees in our neighborhood that are turning and falling and the Martin County Fair started this week! How true it is that the older we get the faster the time passes. At my age, it’s downright scary!
We love tomatoes; garden fresh ones just can’t be beat. We only have two plants but they provide us all we can eat. We feast on them every day. Pa Lloyd likes them best just sliced and fresh but I like them lots of different ways.
Here is a tomato side dish that I like. Remember I said I like anything with a little cheese on top!
British broiled tomatoes:
2 large ripe tomatoes
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic crushed
1/2 cup grated cheese (your choice of kind)
4 Tbsp cubed butter
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
Wash tomatoes, cut in half, turn upside down on paper towels, let drain for 20 minutes. Place cut side up in baking dish, sprinkle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and crushed garlic, sprinkle with cheese, dot with butter, top with chopped parsley.
Place under broiler until cheese is bubbly, about 3 minutes. Watch closely! Serve warm. Have a great week!
