Polenta with Tomatoes and Artichokes and Some Random

I am playing catch up this week. Lots of catch up. Worse, I am getting a cold again. For realz this time. But I have a 9-6 event tomorrow so no time for that. The problem with vacations, for me at least, is that I am so used to not eating prepared foods at this point that my immune system goes haywire from the germs or something and I get a cold. That and vacation from work just means more work to catch up to.

I still have some Barcelona posts to catch up on too but here are some things I made this week and I have an On Deck ready for tomorrow. But crap, I will be out of the office all day tomorrow so it may not get posted til Saturday. And I have not gotten to the gym this week. Saturday. *sigh*

Jeez I worked a long day. But I still managed to do it. The husband grabbed some fresh dumplings from North but I was so late I decided to hold them for lunch tomorrow and make this. it took all of 15 min and I have some pesto made for a crap-ton of meals later.

Fresh pasta from the CSA, cherry tomatoes, some remnants of cambezola and boucheron, made a spinach pesto and salad. All in one.

Tarts and Tarts Part 2: Tomato Tart

This was by far my favorite tart of the evening, a very simple tomato tart with really nice heirloom tomatoes.  Is was not the sexiest tart of the night, but just super good. I pretty much used this recipe and it is a winner.  I`ve never used a Liebowitz recipe, and frankly I don`t go to his site much, if ever unless I get linked to it off another site.  I think he`s a bit overrated and has a bigger following than warranted simply be cause is an American living in Paris and that is a housewife`s wet dream, but maybe I`m being an ass.
