So, it seems that everywhere you look people are having contests. That’s cool. I like contests. So now I’m throwing one myself: a TOMATO contest. But, I got to tell you, I have a couple of ulterior motives. 1. My tomato plants have started working overtime and I need to figure out what to do with all these blasted tomatoes. I love tomatoes, don’t get me wrong, but I’m running out of ways to use them and I just don’t have then energy to can them right now. 2. I kind of want to see how many people actually read this blog enough to submit a recipe. So here we go. These are the rules.
1. The recipe has to feature fresh tomatoes in some way. It doesn’t have to be the MAIN ingredient, but it does have to be important. An example would be the Fish Creole I posted about. That would be acceptable.
2. It needs to be some sort of main dish or a side dish that involves cooking of some sort. No “toss sliced tomatoes with olive oil and salt; serve.” That also rules out salsa. Sorry guys.
3. The recipes need to be submitted by midnight, Thursday the 21st.
4. Up to 2 recipes per person.
The prize will be a $10 gift card to the store of your choice. The options are Wal-Mart, Petsmart and Target.
Judging will not be done just by me. I’ll do the cooking and some of the eating but a few others will be in on the decision as well.
E-mail recipes to me at email@example.com
Put “Tomato Recipe Submission” in the subject box.
All right, get to it!!!
