Default Jonesing for tomatoes!

I don't often have food cravings but I just had a severe one. For a fresh
tomato which I did not have. I also didn't want to open a can of tomatoes
because my dinner of small red beans and a small green salad with olives and
onions will be enough food for me. So I thought of the little cans of
tomato sauce I bought at Winco for 19 cents. Popped one open, put it in a
bowl, warmed it in the microwave and topped it with black pepper and
oregano. Ate three bites and... Ahhhhh. That seemed to be enough for me.
I feel fine now. I suspect I am low on magnesium again. The last time I
craved tomatoes like this, that's what the problem was. Must make a note to
buy fresh tomatoes next time I go to the store. I didn't do a full grocery
shop this week and only bought a few things at Target and Costco.

Hi Julie,

Magnesium. Hmmm. Interesting. I have to supplement,
or I get cramps and eye ticks. And, I eat a lot of tomatoes.
Hmmm. An excuse to eat more tomatoes. Thank you!

My local community farm is closed for the winter. Won't
open till March 1st. I am going through tomato withdrawal.
The store bought, picked green, tomatoes I have been forced
to eat for the past couple of months are just horrible.

If you have one of these farms near by. You must stop in.
At mine, you have to pick them yourself ($2.99/lb),
which I find a blast. When I enter the tomato green house,
I get tipsy on all the free oxygen and have to restrain
myself from yelling: I WANT THEM ALL!

Ripe organic tomatoes off all different varieties. It will
blow your mind! You will hate ever having to eat a store
bought tomato again.

Nope. No farms near where I live. Used to be farm country but not so much
for vegetables given our short growing season.

Wow, whoever thought that fresh tomatoes would be better than
store-bought? Oh yeah, everybody!

Alice Waters, famous foodie and restaurateur of Chez Pannisse, was
quoted by an interviewer as saying "One of the best tomatoes I¹ve ever
had was an "Early Girl" that was dry farmed up in Napa at a friend¹s
house".

Hi Billy,

I am going out of my mind waiting.

Oh and I have a tomato press in storage. Run some fresh real
tomatoes through it, add basil, garlic, evoo. And, Oh My!
And low carb too (no sugar needed to cover up the crappy, picked
too green tomatoes).

One problem. No pasta allowed to pour it over? Poop!

I put home made tomato sauces over the top of meats and vegetables or at
breakfast over fried eggs. If I use a meat sauce (like last night I had
chili con carne) I just have it over vegetables or on it's own with
salad.

Try either spaghetti squash or whole steamed or microwaved string beans
adn put your tomao sauce over them for diabetic spachetti! I use canned
tomatoes at this time of year and many are quite good, no sugar etc added.

Yeah , and I'm addicted to fresh gazpacho, but the sad truth is that a
pound of fresh tomatoes is about 2/3 of an oz. of sugar.

You can make pasta a little more palatable with whole wheat pasta.
I also like tomato sauce over zucchini, stuffed or other wise.
I'm open to other suggestions.

I have discovered that green tomatoes, that unfulfilled promise of what
could have been, that haunts gardeners in the fall, can replace
tomatillos in making salsa verde for enchiladas.

Enchiladas Verdes
Ingredients
Recipe makes 4 servings Change Servings

€ 2 bone-in chicken breast halves
€ 2 cups chicken broth
€ 1/4 white onion
€ 1 clove garlic
€ 2 teaspoons salt
€ 1 pound fresh tomatillos, husks removed (or green tomatoes)
€ 5 serrano peppers (to taste: I use 2 or 3 + an anaheim for flavor)
[my wife is sensitive to heat, I like jalapenos, our daughter eats raw
habaneros]
€ 1/4 white onion
€ 1 clove garlic
€ 1 pinch salt
€ 12 corn tortillas
€ 1/4 cup vegetable oil
€ 1 cup crumbled queso fresco (I use grated monterey Jack)
€ 1/2 white onion, chopped
€ 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

Directions
1. In a saucepan, combine chicken breast with chicken broth, one
quarter onion, a clove of garlic, and 2 teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil,
and then boil for 20 minutes. Reserve broth, set chicken aside to cool,
and discard onion and garlic. When cool enough to handle, shred chicken
with your hands.

2. Place tomatillos and serrano chiles in a pot with water, enough to
cover them. Bring to boil, and continue boiling until tomatillos turn a
different shade of green (from bright green to a dull, army green [about
6-7 min.]). Strain tomatillos and chiles, and place in a blender with
another quarter piece of onion, 1 clove garlic, and a pinch of salt.
Pour in reserved chicken broth, so that liquid just covers the veggies
in the blender by about an inch. Blend all ingredients until they are
completely pureed. Pour salsa in a medium saucepan, and bring to a low
boil.

3. Pour oil in a frying pan, and allow to get very hot. Slightly fry
tortillas one by one in hot oil, setting each on a paper towel
afterwards to soak some of the oil. Finally, dip slightly fried
tortillas in low-boiling green salsa, until tortillas become soft again.
Place on plates, 3 per person.

4. Fill or top tortillas with shredded chicken, then extra green
sauce. Top with crumbled cheese, chopped onion, and chopped cilantro.

I suggest an over-priced microbrewery beer an an accompaniment.

Refried beans, and rice are also good with this meal, if you can deal
with them.

Mmmmm, muy bueno.

Hi Wendy,

I was at Trader Joe's yesterday and look for their low carb
tortillas. I found Sonoma Tortillas at 11 grams carbs per
tortilla (loose one foot). As a reference, Trader Joe's
regular tortillas were 22 grams carbs per tortilla (loose
both feet). Yikes!

My max carb per meal is 15 grams. Did I find the ones
you were speaking of?

What? You have a loose foot?

And 11 grams of carbs are not even considered a serving.

My max carb per meal is 15 grams. Did I find the ones

Why is this? That's a tad unreasonable. You couldn't even eat a meal of
eggs and veggies if that's all you can eat. Perhaps you need to be on a
diabetes med or insulin.
