Food of the Month: January
02 January 2012
Welcome to the very first installment of the Food of the Month Club!
To start things off, I thought it only fitting to feature the food that inspired it all...Tomatoes!
It was 5 o'clock in the morning on the kiddies last day of school before Christmas vacation. I was cooking a very large pot full of about 4 kilos of tomatoes to make Tomato Salsa for Ashley's class party. While I waited for the tomatoes to finish cooking, I started to think about some of my favorite tomato based recipes like Cream of Tomato Soup and Entomatadas. Then I thought about other tomato recipes that I wanted to try, like Tomato Soup Cake. Then I began to wonder how fun it would be to get together with a few of my foodie friends to share some of our favorite ways to cook and eat one specific food each month. And the idea for the Food of the Month Club was born!
Any kind of tomato will do. Grape and/or cherry tomatoes, Heirlooms, Romas, even tomatoes as large as grapefruits.
You have until January 28th to post your tomato recipes on your blog and email me your entries. For more details read the main page for the Food of the Month Club.
I will see you all back here on January 31st with the Food of the Month Club: Tomato Round-Up.
