The Monday Recipe Blog

Hello and happy Valentine's Day!!  For today's recipe, we are going to take a one-week break from Lois Elaine's recipe box and feature a guest recipe from Red Gold Tomatoes.

Red Gold Tomatoes is a private, family owned Indiana-based company around since the '40s focused on growing local in the Midwest where true seasons impact the flavor of tomatoes (even winters are important for the tomato soil). They grow the tomatoes in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. They even have professional chefs who swear there is nothing better.  Red Gold tomatoes are sold in Oklahoma City grocery stores, and probably in stores near you.  I love Red Gold Tomatoes - Can't imagine a grocery that doesn't carry them, but if your favorite store doesn't, ask them to stock the Red Gold brand.  You'll be pleasantly surprised when you taste them!
