How about ‘dem love apples?

Valentines Day might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I think there can never be too many days to celebrate the people you love. If that sounds too Hallmark for words, rest assured that I’ll cheerfully stab anyone who claims that ‘every day is Valentines Day for us’. It’s precisely because every day ISN’T full of hearts and flowers that we need to be grateful for the ones that are.

Anyway, if you’re stuck for ideas for ways to celebrate, here are some particularly good tomato recipes to make for your beloved(s). If that seems like a weird thing to do, rest assured that the French once thought tomatoes had aphrodisiac powers. Oh la la and all that, you know?

    I am a fan of peanut butter and tomatoes on toast with some seasoning so am interested in the idea of marinating the tomatoes!

    I will make a tomato salad when we have homegrown tomatoes, yes Valentines Day is not every day – thank goodness

      I hope your homegrown tomatoes fare better than mine are at the moment, they're taking a long time to get going!

    Lucy, this reminds me – if I'm planting tomatoes this year, I better get them in the ground this week! My gardening has dwindled to nothing, I'm afraid. But there's nothing like a homegrown tomato!
