What is growing abundantly in our garden at the moment
 We have been blessed with a wonderful harvest of tomatoes. Are more are growing. Mainly used for sandwiches at the moment. But would also like to make pasta sauce, and tomato relish.
These are large tomatoes too, one slice fills a slice of bread. Tasty too :)
A series of 1940's books I'm reading
Some new books added to my bookcase. Having a wonderful time reading. And with our tomato harvest, the 'Facts for the Kitchen Front' is proving very interesting.
Stuffed raw tomatoes looks like an interesting recipe to try.
  • Halved medium-sized tomatoes
  • oil, vinegar
  • Few scraps of fish or meat (finely minced) if liked
  • Finely minced onion or chopped spring onion
  • Chopped parsley or sprigs of watercress
  • Cooked rice
Prepare the cooked rice by mixing it with a little minced onion, and dressing it with a little oil and vinegar. Season well.
If you have a few teaspoons of minced cooked meat or fish, these can be added as well.
Then halve the tomatoes, remove a little of the pulp with a teaspoon, adding it to the rice. Then pile up the tomato cups with the prepared filling, and dust over with finely chopped parsley.
Serve with a green salad.
I'm thinking of giving that a go for dinner tonight.
