Recipe of the Day : Side Dish

With little time to think of what to prepare for dinner, anything that takes the least time and ingredients will surely do. Cooking used to be very therapeutic but not these days... the prep, cooking and serving must be done in the speed of light! Zoom Zoom.

This tomato meat dish was concocted in my mind within 5 minutes I saw the cherry tomatoes sitting untouched in their little plastic basket. Simple, quick and nutritious... what more can I ask for..... and no one complained!
