Tomato Serendipity

Yesterday we had a lovely family dinner. 
The occasion? 
Yes it was Valentine's Day, but no, that is not it. 

You see we chose that day, the day of love and caring to stand together again, before our children and repeat those same vows of commitment, love and dedication to marriage and this time include our children and grandchildren while creating a wonderful family memory. 

We prepared a lovely meal, and everyone including us, had a great time. One dish in particular that was a surprising hit was a rustic Italian dish of potatoes and beans. It is delicious! This was topped with a savory sprinkle of dried tomatoes and cheese, which we call Tomato Serendipity, lets make some, shall we?

Tomato Serendipity
by the seat of my pants
makes about 1 1/2 c

Cooks notes and possible words of wisdom:  This blend is delicious! You can use this stuff just about anywhere tomato and/or Parmesan cheese are invited, Sprinkled over soups, pastas, vegetables both hot and cold (salad yes!). And don't forget sandwiches.....

1 c packed dried (not packed in oil) tomato pieces (use the julienne cut style for this recipe)
1/2 c dried Parmesan cheese or a Parm and Romano blend (yes the kind in the green can.....)

Buzz in your processor until all pieces are approximately the size of the cheese. Put in a serving dish, add a sprinkling spoon and enjoy!


Tomorrow I will share the potato and bean dish we enjoyed this with, trust me, you will want to make it.........

This beautiful celebration cake was made by my lovely daughter Jessica.
