One of my favorite things about the summer is the farmer’s markets. Louisville has lots of them, and one of our favorites is the Douglass Loop Farmer’s Market – right across the street from our old apartment.
On Saturday we picked up some heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil, so I decided to try a recipe courtesy of French Ponytail – Roasted Balsamic Tomatoes with Goat Cheese and Basil. Pinterest is such a great place to search for recipes and I found this one right away.
And, of course, it was delicious. I had never roasted tomatoes before, and I was pleasantly surprised on how easy it was. Just dig out the seeds, drizzle them with oil and vinegar and then pop them in the oven for 30 minutes. We did eat ours with a little toasted bread since I didn’t dig out as many of the seeds as I should. It turned a little soupy but was still wonderful.
The fresh basil really makes all the difference. I got a bunch for $2, so we’ll be eating lots of combinations of tomatoes, cheese and basil for the next few days. Yum!
And, when I’m not surfing Pinterest, I’m hanging out with my daughter, Avery. Just had to share this picture – her smile cracks me up. 🙂
