Friday, wow! That happened fast. Thinking about what you’re going to cook this weekend?
I, for one, am still craving tomato sauce, tomato-based soup, and all things involving sun-dried tomatoes. I really hope this doesn’t mean I have some illness that my body has begun craving lycopene and other antioxidants in tomatoes in order to combat. Maybe I’m just into the color red—who knows? Given then this is the extent of my holiday decorating, it’s probably that I could use a little burst of color:
Either way, the pasta dish I made other night totally hit the spot. I do not have a picture, but it involved chicken, kabocha, and red kale in a tomato sauce, which was essentially homemade marinara mixed with non-fat ricotta and roasted garlic. I still also have a batch of eggplant lentil soup in the freezer that I can’t stop thinking about. Thank god for canned tomatoes.
The folks at Tuttorusso Tomatoes would like one of you to enjoy some tomatoes too! One lucky reader will receive a kit that contains several varieties of canned tomatoes, plus tomato paste, a wooden spoon, an apron, and recipes.
To enter, just leave a comment below telling me your favorite tomato-based recipe!
I’ll announce the winner on Monday. Have a great weekend!
If you want to make any non-tomato things this weekend, here are a few things that caught my eye on the inter webs this week:
- The perfect cheese plate. I love this tutorial from How Sweet It Is.
- This gorgeous salad from Elizabeth Stark of Brooklyn Supper. Crunchy seasonal veggies in a lemon-tahini dressing? Sign me up!
- A whole slow-cooker poached chicken. For those of you with family (read: many mouths) about to descend on your home next week…
