Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

Today was a bit of a rush. Jen thought she was going to beat me home from work but she failed! I was able to use my Zipcar to bob and weave my way through New Jersey traffic and get home early to get a head start on dinner. I think it was just the awesome power of the Subaru Outback.

While I made a very quick pasta, Jen put together the salad of red leaf, sliced tomato, and chopped almonds.

I concasséed some tomatoes, browned some garlic in butter and olive oil, then chopped the tomatoes and simmered them for about ten minutes. I used a little dried sage and some of the fresh parsley. I tossed in some fresh capellini and served with grated parmesan cheese.

Jen opened a bottle of Our Daily Red. It was organic and far better than the last organic wine we tried which tasted a bit like doody.

This is Jen. I would just like to point out that Nate may have beaten me home, but I clearly prepared 2/3 of dinner (salad, wine). So, really, who's the more efficient one now?
