SUMMER!!!!

Okay, so I am super sorry for ignoring my blog for all this time (I was having blogging withdrawals). I am happy to report that school is over! Now I have Vegas, Erin’s Bachlorette party, Erin’s Wedding… Erin’s etc. Speaking of Erin here is her blog:

Just in case any of my readers a looking for a little decorating, wedding, or just inspiration in general. Anyway, I figure since I have been such a bad little blogger we could catch up with each other. Yes? Okay good :D.  I am going to be cooking ALL week and try to do a post every day from now until the end of the week. I want to hit on all of the categories, so that maybe you can do an entire meal….we’ll see though. I haven’t really found what to do for a main course yet (if you have any ideas definitely comment them below). For today, let’s start with the appetizer. Today is brought to you by the letter: Parmesan Garlic Broiled Tomatoes

So…I totally fail. I will add an edit, but I forgot that I am on my work laptop (haha…I should be a little more productive! But I finished like 3 safety campaigns this morning, so I thought I deserved a little break!) and not on my home laptop. Fail! So, I don’t have the website to give you…but the recipe was simple enough that  I can for sure post it 😀

Ingredients:

4 Beefsteak tomatoes

1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil

salt

pepper

1 Tbs garlic powder

1/2 C Parmesan (I used an Italian mix)

Method:

1. Preheat the broiler

2. Wash the tomatoes and then cut them along the equator (you can actually cut them into thirds and it still comes out nicely)

3. In a mixing bowl, mix  cheese and garlic powder

4. brush the olive oil over the top

5. salt and pepper (i did about 3 shakes for each tomato)

6. put about a tablespoon of the cheese mixture on each tomato (I just pinched the mixture and added so the whole top was covered)

7. broil for about 7-10 mins

Notes:

I didn’t notice before when I made it the first time, but I think to broil you put your oven rack on the higher one. Yes? No? Idk. I did it the second time and they cooked a lot faster. There aren’t many notes on this except for they are REALLY good, and it is so easy. Plus, the meal says summer to me. Be aware that the cheese doesn’t separate so if you want to take a bite, it may be cheese less. Also, my tomatoes were really juicy so I got a little messy when eating (After the 2nd squirt I just popped the whole thing in my mouth. Try it out and happy nom noms!

(I will have pictures later…my phone is being dumb and not sending them to me)
