danish tomatoes

a recipe for danish tomatoesSome Things Never Change.

And fortunately some things DO change! Like taste. Who hasn’t heard that your “taste buds change over time?”

As a kid I couldn’t have cared less about this statement. But what a sad life I would have lived without my accidental BFF, the tomato.

I’m happy to say that while I wanted to be seated as far across the table from Miss Tomato growing up, my taste buds love them to this day. Go figure.

Which reminds me of one of the “dirtiest” jokes I remember Mom telling. She learned it at Catholic school and regardless, I’m sure the Nuns would have smiled…

Question: Why did Miss Tomato blush?

Answer: She saw Mr. Green Pea.

And with that, we’re off to the tomato races!

  Mom wrote that this danish tomato recipe was a good side with steak, so I made these on the same night as this sirloin with mushroom gravy. Home run. She was right!

  A spoonful of blue cheese? Or spoonfulls.
