Outpost Foods Co-op is one of my favorite places. I always stop in on a trip back home to Milwaukee. The deli and bakery area is my favorite. I love to discover what they come up with, and grab a magazine of course to see what beautiful foods they are showcasing and recipes they are sharing. This recipe comes from their old school newsletter.
The Green Tomato sauce recipe mentioned is my favorite way to use up green tomatoes. I make a batch of it every year. Ten years after reading about it I finally tried the soup recipe that uses the sauce. It is a winner! A great change of pace. I didn't have any yogurt to add and it's fine without it. I have for lunch, adding whatever roasted veggies I have leftover in the fridge.

I love growing tomatoes in my garden but every year I end up with a few stragglers that do not fully ripen. I've never had success with getting them to ripen inside and finally I found something besides frying up those green ones (which I love but it's just a bit time consuming!).
Paging through my local Co-op's magazine I came across this recipe that looked like a great way to use these green beauties. It is very easy and is unique. The tomatoes are boiled in olive oil kind of reminding me of fried green tomatoes. It turns into a rich, silky smooth sauce that is great over pasta. My husband finds it a bit too much so he will mix a little with a red tomato sauce.

is the smallest kitchen ever. We used to watch those decorating shows that said they were doing small kitchens and then could see that 4 of my kitchens would fit in their "small kitchens".
