Ah, that's the life...I'm sure many of you will be able to connect with a simple dish like this that's why I chose to post it at this time. Although it is a great companion to cornmeal fry bake I also find it just fitting for this time of Lent which, by the way, I'm really getting a hang of.
I really didn't have as much meat as I usually do during this time and consumed lots more veggies. Of course this had some influence on the recipes we chose to prepare and I must say it was a creative and rewarding experience. Now sauteed tomatoes shouldn't be looked at so simply. It's loaded with antioxidants more importantly lycopene which is great at combating cancer.
