Green Beans and Ham

Don’t let anyone talk you into undercooking the beans when you make this, it’s not a stir fry.

The cornbread has chopped jalapenos and shredded cheddar and it works for me as an accompaniment for the beans.

Tacos for Sunday Lunch

Used the rest of those first cherry tomatoes in a pico de gallo.  The taco base is refried beans and chicken, I finished mine out with the pico, chopped lettuce, queso fresco, and my new favorite taco sauce.  I like the red, Mrs J goes for the green.

Pizza Pr0n

I picked the first batch of cherry tomatoes, probably about a pint and a half.  Mrs J looked at the bowl and thought they would go good on a pizza.  She was right.

These are more of those naan loaves we bought at the International grocery.  They are about 8 inches in diameter and make great little individual pies.  I brushed them with garlic infused olive oil, added pieces of sliced provolone, and the sliced tomatoes.  They went into a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes.  Add the fresh basil after they come out.  Shredded parmesan works well.  I use a microplane grater on a small block of hard cheese.
