This 'n That plus Saturday Recipe.

Sorry no blog yesterday, got stuck into Poldark again and hadn't written anything earlier during the day. Apart from which, I was a bit stunned at what happened in the last episode I watched. Something I definitely did not expect.

I received my Miranda Esmonde-White DVDs on Thursday. At the time of writing I haven't looked at them but there are two disks with several half hour exercises plus some extras. Being Friday as I write, I will probably leave them til Saturday now. Friday is exercise class anyway. I am hoping to use them on my desktop as there isn't a heck of a lot of room in front of the TV.

Somewhat nervous evening, watching Jeopardy there was a warning for the area of a possible tornado and a violent storm with hail etc. The tornado warnings have been dropped now, but still warnings of violent storms. I don't know what we should do for a tornado, I assume go down to the undergound garage area. At the current time of writing there is quite a storm raging outside.

This recipe really appealed to me, seems somewhat different.

Warm Buttered Tomatoes With Ginger And Scallions

This versatile peak-of-summer condiment can be served on top of white rice, pasta, toast, steamed
fish, steak, or roast chicken.

4 Tbs unsalted butter
1 1-inch piece ginger, peeled, cut into thin matchsticks
4 scallions, white and pale green parts finely chopped, dark green parts thinly sliced
1 ½ lbs tomatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 4 cups)
2 Tbs plus 1 ½ teaspoons white or regular soy sauce
Kosher salt

1. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium. As soon as butter stops foaming, add ginger and scallion whites and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook, turning gently with a large spoon, until tomatoes are juicy and just warmed through, about 2 minutes. Add soy sauce and toss to combine. Taste and season with salt, if needed. Top with scallion greens.

Servings: 4

  1. I wondered where all that rain went. They kept saying we would get terrible storms here, I heard thunder, but not one drop of rain.

    1. We didn't get anything like they were talking about Denise, this morning you wouldn't even know it had rained last night.

  2. We've got severe winds forecast for tonight and then again tomorrow night too. Fingers crossed neither of us have any serious problems.

  3. I do wish the heat and humidity would go away for good. I just cannot stand it. This summer has been the worst.

    1. I haven't particularly noticed humidity JoJo, but others have said it was humid. It's not been all that warm here either. Just nice most of the time.

  4. It has been pretty humid here in Montreal over the last few days, but thankfully this summer hasn't seen the degree and level of humidity that we can get! (sometimes dangerously high). This looks very tasty, Jo. Now I have to go and make supper, I am getting hungry. :) Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. That's good Linda. Humidity is far worse than just heat.

      I thought so and must try it soon.

  5. I didn't know you get tornadoes in Canada. Mind you I suppose they can form anywhere. There was one in my home town once which destroyed just one street. There was no warning and it happened in the middle of the night. Stay safe.

    1. Not much and not often thank God Pinky. There was a very bad one north of us but that was around 40 years ago. In the middle of the night is NOT funny.
