We finally saw the sun today after several days of rain. My spring plantings aren’t anywhere near where they were at this time last year. My radish have mostly rotted out in the ground. I’m not sure what this means for my next round of plantings, but I can only hope and pray that once I put my tomato seedlings in the ground, things will start going my way. Because there is nothing I love more than roasted tomatoes, and while my garden won’t be giving me tomatoes anytime soon, Backyard Farms is here to help with New England grown greenhouse tomatoes. On their site you’ll find my recipes for these Roasted Tomatoes on the Vine, as well as that delicious Broccoli Asparagus Quinoa Salad pictured above, which I’ve been making and devouring on repeat. I roasted an entire pan full of tomatoes knowing I’d want a few for a cheese plate my friend put together for an event we recently attended. The tomatoes were a scene stealer and paired so well with a variety of cheeses, crackers, spiced and salted nuts, fruit and honey. Because the tomatoes soften and sweeten when roasted, they become spreadable, almost like a tomato jam. So perfect for cheese pairings. I hope you’ll hope on over to Backyard Farms for the full recipe. This is the type of recipe you’ll turn to all summer long, for pastas and salads, and for the perfect sandwich condiment. Enjoy!
