Dinner Party: Oven Baked Cherry Tomatoes

Friday, January 13, 2012

A few nights ago I was invited for a little dinner party and instead of going with a regular wine-bottle wrapped in a tea-towel type of hostess gift, I used Šárka's advice and made a jar of oven dried cherry tomatoes instead. I packed them in an Ikea jar and attached a little note with a string. I was super nervous about it as not everyone likes dried tomatoes but Kara loved it - ufff. Lovelies, what are your favourite hostess or housewarming gifts? xo

P.S: If you fancy making some of those yummy dried tomatoes. Here is the full recipe.
P.P.S: You can use them for this scrumptious BL(slow roasted)T sandwich.

Such a great gift! I have some leftover cherry tomatoes- maybe I'll be making some tonight.

I usually bring a baked good. During the winter it's a box of Italian bread.

That's a great idea! I do roast cherry tomatoes for use in whatever meal I happen to be whipping up but it's never occurred to me to make a whole jar full while I'm at it, or to present it as a hostess gift!

As synesthesia painter, I see colors for names, I sometimes paint the name of the host as greeting card. But I like your idea!
