(2017) Pasta with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

I went a little crazy at the farmers markets this weekend and came home with about five different kinds of cherry tomatoes. I just finished roasting up a pan. Some I’m eating on toast, but the rest will be used in this recipe. It’s from “Seriously Simple: Easy Recipes for Creative Cooks” by Diane Rossen Worthington.

(2017) Cherry Tomato, Corn and Halloumi Salad

From Martha Stewart – love this combination. If you don’t want to buy halloumi (which is a very cool cheese if you’re not familiar with it) consider some feta. Maybe from Decimal Place? You could just do the feta as it comes from the container, or give it a little saute as suggested here. It’s fun if you haven’t tried “sauteed cheese” before.

(2017) Tomato and Herb Dip

From Saveur magazine, you can use up all those tomatoes you’re accumulating. (Maybe you’re like me and went crazy at local farmers markets this weekend. I came home with a bushel basket’s worth of tomatoes from an organic farmer who sells at the Jonesboro Farmers Market.) It’s from chef Sara Hauman of Huxley restaurant in San Francisco. Yes, you’ll heat up your kitchen, but it sure will smell delicious.

(2017) Watermelon Curry

This recipe is based on one from “660 Curries” by Raghavan Iyer . Apparently it’s a specialty of the Indian state of Rajasthan. It was printed in Saveur magazine, I think, and they recommend for a thicker curry, remove half of the cooked watermelon pieces, blend them to a pulpy consistency, and stir them back into the curry. The ajwain and nigella seeds are available at Indian groceries and I think I’ve seen them at Sevananda. I can’t wait to try this one.
