Jenny is in perpetual search for easy, weeknight recipes to attempt to feed her family. When they balk, she just eats more.
This week, Jenny is taking a day off. But we know a Monday with no Jenny would be a very sad day indeed, so we tracked down our favorite Jenny recipe.
2 large heirloom tomatoes
1 dash good coarse salt
1. Live in Southern California. This step is important.
2. Go to the farmer's market. Pass the $5-a-lb heirloom tomato lady several times. Do nothing. As you are about to leave, approach her table, dig around in your pocket for the last time, place two tomatoes on her scale, then fork over your last $10, $3 of it in change. Go home. Lie to your spouse about how much they cost. Place salt on a nice piece of china. Cut up tomatoes, dip them in the salt and eat them. Regret nothing.
