New food was not a priority leading up to vacation and being on vacation, so I tried to make up for it this week. Our tomato bounty was serious upon arrival home:
Sunday-Pasta all checca with tomatoes and basil from our garden (NR) and salad. Very flavorful and while I love a fresh tomato sauce, this one is not cooked and I prefer a sauce that has been cooked/heated.
Monday-Venison loin leftover from our trip (we had coolers), eggs baked in tomatoes and peppers (NR). I did not love this recipe. Texture and flavor left something to be desired.
Wednesday-crab cakes, fingerling potatoes and tomato, corn and avocado salad (NR). Winner, winner, chicken dinner. I subbed cut up larger tomatoes for the cherry tomatoes and loved this dish. Fresh, light and the lime juice dressing was delicious!
I haven't gotten to baking yet, but I've got plans to make a few things this weekend and freeze them for tailgating. These are a few on my list.
Homemade cinnamon bread
Everyday chocolate cake
Salted butter chocolate chip cookies
