Stuffed Tomatoes, Ginger Nymphs = A Perfect Sunday Afternoon Meal

We had a wonderful noon meal today, enjoying scrumptious stuffed tomatoes, using a recipe that Mom & Dad used on their date get-away a few weeks ago.  Also on our menu was delicious (and now all together eaten) Ginger Nymphs (a.k.a., balls of goodness), the recipe for which we got from a good friend.  We decided to try both of these out again today for lunch...  Hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed eating the items pictured in the photos! =) 

Yours truly (Phoebe) hollowing out the tomatoes

The leaning tower of tomatoes

Using a knife to carve out the insides of the tomatoes.

Combine all of the insides of the tomatoes in a bowl.

Finely chop parsley (or in this case, basil)

Add the Feta Cheese

Finely dice the onions

Add the olive oil

Finely chop (or crumble-ize, is that a word?!) toasted bread - our substitute for Kasha. 

There you go, crumble-ized bread... =)

Then mix it all up in a bowl...

...and stuff the tomatoes.

Ginger Nymphs all lined up neatly.  Sorry we didn't get any pictures of the process, but it's very easy to do, and doesn't take too long either! 

What's the best part, is that they taste SO GOOD!!
