Tomato Goodness

I was at the supermarket the other day and found gorgeous tomatoes for a really good price. There is a green house down the street from the supermarket and I suspect that is where the tomatoes came from. I decided to make two tomatoe dishes this morning to eat over the next couple days.

1 garlic clove - minced
4inches of day old baguette - crusts removed
3 ripe, juicy tomatoes - deseeded and peeled
1/2 japanese cucumber - peeled
1/8 yellow bell pepper
1/8 red bell pepper
1tbsp red wine vinegar
2tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1tsp sugar
1tsp sea salt
extra fresh ground salt & pepper for seasoning

Throw all veggies and bread in the blender and then blend until smooth. Add everything else and blend for a few seconds to mix. Refrigerate for 8hrs to overnight.

Toasted Tomatoes
This one is really simple. Cut a tomatoe in half and deseed. Put the cut sides up and spread pesto sauce over the top. Put in the toaster oven and toast until warm and fragrant. They can be eaten warm or cold. I am going to let them sit in the fridge all day and then toast them again at supper tonight with cheese on top.
