My appetizer tonight: raw cherry tomatoes cut in half, with a little kosher salt sprinkled on top!

I've only recently discovered the awesomeness of cherry tomatoes, having thought I hated raw tomatoes for my entire life till now. D'oh! Now I love these things, and I'm finding they work really well as a sort of appetite suppressant for me... definitely curbs whatever cravings I have. And they're like 50 calories for a whole pint of the things, I think, so I've finally found something I can eat the entire container of without feeling guilty. :) Yay cherry tomatoes!

Cherry tomatoes are awesome raw, but you haven't experienced AMAZING until you slow-roast them!!! They are everything a sun-dried tomato wishes it were! I toss mine in a little bit of olive oil (or cooking spray), a bit of s&p, and occasionally some dried herbs (thyme, rosemary, etc). Pop them in an oven with some garlic cloves at 225 degrees for 3 hours or so... heaven! :angel:
