"Take that you ingrate!", I'd say. "After all I've done for you, water, feed, weed...this is how you repay me? You're outta here!"
But all of a sudden, sensing, I suppose, my mounting anger and their impending doom, they are growing again so I'll see if they "snap out of it" before I yank them.
Eggs baked in Tomatoes
An easy dish for one or for more- here's how:
All you will need is one beefsteak tomato and one large egg per person, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, ample freshly grated black pepper and fresh basil leaves. I like this because the only salt needed is already in the cheese and no oil or butter is necessary. Serve with toast. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees f.
- Cut off the top of the tomato and scoop out the seeds and pulp. (I am saving these bits for my salad dressing at lunch)
- Liberally pepper the inside of the tomato.
- Crack in the egg.
- Top with parmesan cheese.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes.
- Top with torn fresh basil leaves.
