Hey guys! Long time no speak! I just recovered from a nasty stomach bug so needless to say I didn’t have any exciting eats to share. Toast and a few bites of broth was about all I could muster for a few days. Fortunately it has since passed and I’ve moved on to more exciting toast, like toast topped with creamy ricotta, caramelized onions, spinach and roasted tomatoes.
This past weekend Tom & I had a delayed 30th birthday party at a bar in Boston and we had SO MUCH FUN! We rented out a room that had its own bar and music system, we rocked out to some 90s hip hop and threw back some cocktails and miller high life 🙂 I feel so lucky to have such a great group of friends, thanks to everyone for coming out to celebrate with us!
When I go back to cooking meals after going a while without spending much time in the kitchen, its SO nice to just spend time chopping and prepping for a meal. There is something so meditative about it, its my zen zone. I’ve just been having trouble finding the motivation to cook lately. I’m hoping my work schedule will slow down a bit so I have more time to cook up elaborate meals again 🙂 Stay tuned…
Anyways, about this toast. It makes the perfect light lunch, I was trying to imagine eating it outside on the patio on a nice warm summer day. Warm summer days feel so far off after a week of rainy cold weather but maybe it will come some day. Until then, a girl can dream can’t she?
To make this I just roasted some sweet cherry tomatoes at 425 until they started to explode 🙂 Then I sautéed some onions, garlic, spinach and ricotta cheese . Stirred in some salt, pepper and thyme, drizzled with some olive oil and called it a day!
I know we’re not knocking down culinary boundaries with this one but it was delicious & quick and hopefully you’ll get to enjoy it outside on a patio with warm summer weather, someday…
Have a great weekend!!
