This particular dish was born of three things: laziness, my love of sweet tomatoes, and my son’s desire to cook. Let me elaborate.
I have a thriving pear tomato plant that loves how rainy this summer has been. Unfortunately, I was tragically born without patience. Seriously; I hate when things take long. Soooo I tend to buy these tomatoes at the grocery store anyway rather than wait for my plants to deliver, and I always have them around.
Anyway, I was playing with my son today while my daughter was sleeping; he decided he
wanted to help me cook. Well, at 3 in the after there isn’t a lot of cooking to be done, so I wanted something quick, simple, and with very little clean up. Plus, I was hoping he would actually try them if he helped make them. He didn’t of course, but life goes on. Here’s what we did:
Get a small sauté pan on medium high heat and add about 2 tbs of olive oil. When it starts to shimmer, throw in a handful of cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle salt and garlic powder, then leave on the heat, stirring occasionally, until they pop.
Now turn them into a dish, and enjoy. See? Short and simple. Enjoy!
