Tonight’s meal was another fabulous offering, straight from the garden, but created especially for the seasonal delicacies by the lovely Warren Elwin for Bite magazine in the New Zealand Herald and inspired by what is going on in my garden. I feel so privileged to have such amazing recipes drawn from what I have growing and it wouldn’t do not to attempt the wonderful recipes that sit so nicely beside my autumn article.
So today we have had a simple meal, in that it was so easy to prepare, but rich and sumptuous, it felt as though we were dining like kings! The humble sausage was elevated to an incredible feast as they were baked upon a bed of perfectly vine ripened cherry tomatoes. Fresh herbs and garlic (store bought but I don’t want to talk about why as the dismal failure of my crop still pains me) and the mellow yet sharpness of the balsamic vinegar mingled together for a meal that made us feel spoilt to eat.
I imagine Roasted Sausages and Tomatoes will quickly become a welcome regular on my meal planning list as it so easy to prepare, yet extremely delish. This gives me another reason to pamper my tomato plants and hope the first frost of the season is a long way off so they survive well into autumn and we and continue to enjoy this dish.
Come again soon – so far these meals have delighted us and I can’t wait for the next one.
