Summer Foods

I'm keenly aware of summers ending very soon.

I find myself looking forward to the change in seasons...yet, I know how much I will miss the summer vegetables , at least for a few days.

I love eating whatever the seasonal foods around me happen to be.

But...for now, the tomatoes are still plentiful...and this is a recipe to enjoy again and again....until that final no more !

Oregano Tomatoes

4 large tomatoes ( heirloom preferable )
2 oz butter ( real )
1 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano-or-1-1/2 tsp of dried
1 clove garlic ( crushed )
Fresh ground black pepper
Pinch Sea Salt
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Cut tomatoes in half horizontally and place in a shallow heatproof baking dish.
Beat the butter with the oregano, garlic, pepper, salt, and cheese.
Spread the mixture over the cut side of the tomato.
Broil under medium heat for about 5 minutes until the topping is just turning golden.

Serve with crusty fresh bread and very good with white fish.


Sage Hill has fresh oregano ready for harvest...also fresh dried ready for your fall and holiday cooking~

Yummmm...that sounds really good and so easy to make. I'm like you, tomatoes will always be the veggie that I miss most. Enjoying them while they last!

Thanks Jane...yes indeed, for when they are gone...they are really gone-for a whole season, can't tolerate those super-market things called 'tomatoes.' :)
