For Thursday, June 17th, 2010
Homemade Roasted Roma Tomatoes
10-14 roma tomatoes (you could experiment with other tomatoes, but romas are less delicate and less seedy and work well)
Olive oil (probably about 1/4 – 1/2 cup)
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
Salt (kosher, preferably)
Spices you like – Oregano, Basil, Parsley, Red Pepper Flakes, whatever!
Add minced garlic to the olive oil and let sit while you prepare the tomatoes. Slice tomatoes into wedges, 8 per tomato. Spread on cookie sheet and brush with garlic olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, spices, and sugar. Bake at 200 degrees for 2-6 hours or so (5 1/2 hours was my magic number).
Store in the refrigerator drizzled in olive oil.
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O heavenly Father, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
A bit of love from someone near…
