dual purposed.

This post has 2 purposes:
1) To make Chrystal puke.
2) To promote a good idea to any others who might enjoy such a thing.

James went out for a run as I came home from riding, so I was having to wait a while before I could start cooking. I was so hungry though! I was making curried shrimp in roasted tomatoes for dinner, which I love, which made me not want to eat anything before. The time of James' approach was, well, approaching, and I started prepping the food. The recipe called for the tomatoes to be cored, leaving the cores to be thrown away unused. I have often eaten a tomato as a snack, like an apple, and couldn't throw away that much tomato! So, I put the cores the blender with a clove of garlic. Then I drank it like a smoothie. Mmmmmmmm. It was a little more filling than I wanted it to be, but it was better than a lot of smoothies I've had. The seeds didn't bother me any more than strawberry seeds do.

So, if you think that you would like that, you should try it. I'm pretty sure you can tell by reading the description whether or not you will.

Do you want to know something funny about me?

When I make sauce and I run the tomatoes through the processor with garlic and onion, I actually like to eat spoonfuls of it. I really think it's the weird texture/consistency of raw tomatoes...not so much the taste.

I am such a weird.

But I love that you thought of me :-D

I've never made anything from a recipe that required cored tomatoes before. Weird!

I thought of you when I posted this!

You roast the tomatoes and put curried shrimp in them. Well, we really just eat them on the side.

Hoping to accomplish task #1:

Has Chrystal witnessed a beheaded chicken chasing a youngster?

Has Chrystal witnessed a cow being slaughtered?

(Sorry, Chrystal.)

thanks for the help! i was really thinking that the thought of drinking raw tomatoes (which she hates) would do the trick, but it didn't!!
