A food staple. Slow tomatoes. Red White and Blue Tomatoes.

 This has been a staple in my house for a while, and when I saw the same idea in Gwynetths new book (which I have been working my way thru) I knew I would love it. Just the way I like to cook. Simple, fresh, not too complicated, and delicious. These are so versatile. We use them on cheese for appetizer, whizzed up into a quick sauce, piled high on a BLT, eaten out of the jar....can you tell I love this? When you see Roma tomatoes on sale buy a bunch and thank me later.

Slice the tomatoes into thirds. 

Line on a parchment lined baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. That's it. Pop them into your oven at 250-275 degrees for 4-6 hours. These store well in a jar for about a week with a good drizzle of olive oil. To make something a little different, sprinkle with Greek seasoning (genius right) that a sweet friend sent you. Thank you Mary! She IS fabulous in case you were wondering...

I'm headed to the store in a few minutes, and I'm definitely checking for Roma tomatoes on sale (although I think I just might have to buy them even if they're not on sale) :).

This bruschetta recipe sounds delicious!

And last but not least- I'm lovin' that book.
