|My lunch today: Tomatoes à la Provençale from French Cooking in Ten Minutes.|
(Think you see a diet coke? You're hallucinating.)
In fact, I have made tomatoes this way many times. I first learned the recipe from my friend Michelle, who has lived in Paris most of her life, but who cooks Provencal style. I've even enjoyed this dish in the stunning kitchen of her summer home in Provence. No question, it's a fabulous way to eat tomatoes!
|The tomatoes and herbs came from the Santa Barbara farmers' market.|

requires around 15 minutes as written).
