A Future Quiche Topping?

Cooking Adventure: Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes
Source: The Food Network

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

The tomato is the symbol for love, and apparently last night I didn't get enough lovin' from the artichoke stew. So today I decided to try another recipe. What better way to get rid of leftovers before a weekend trip? I found a Roma tomato hiding in the fruit drawer whose purchase date I I could only vaguely remember. Luckily, it was enough to know that it was more than likely still good. Did the squeeze test. Yup. Still good.

It turns out to be a good recipe for a quick snack. But I'd suggest having the tomatoes on top of something (i.e. toasted bread, quiche, etc.). I'd also suggest checking the oven before you preheat it so you don't open it only to find the burnt remains of what used to be pita bread. This is the exact reason I never store things in my oven.

For Next Time: Slap it on top of something. And involve olive oil somehow.

Caution: This recipe may result in byproducts in the form of burnt pita.

I tend to keep things in my oven too -usually pots and pans.
By the time I check the oven I need to find oven mitts
