Feta Stuffed Tomatoes

I have made a decision which I am going to work with, this summer. Can you sense my hesitancy? My decision is to make myself a decent lunch, each day, Monday through Thursday. Usually, those are days, I will plan as I go along. 

Since the teaching year is over, I will, in some way, divide my days between pleasure activities, prep work for next year and appointments that I want to fit in.  Eating is part of each of these days and my normal way of handling this, in the summer, is to eat anything, on hand, at the particular moment, I have time to eat.


My plans are to change this.  I am just not sure, my actions will keep up with these standards.  I will share some of my good meals with you.  Cheer me on, please.  


For lunch today, I had something delicious, feta stuffed tomato.  Feta hold its own in flavor and the flavor shone through but it was tempered with the onions and parsley.  It came together with the most delicious taste and I am going to look for ways to use feta cheese, in other recipes, combining it with different spices.

I have no idea where this recipe comes from.  I found it, in several places, the same ingredients and instructions.  Yummily and Food.com are an example of two of these sites.

Feta Stuffed Tomatoes (for 1 or 2)

Ingredients:

1 tomato (save the pulp)
1 ounce feta cheese
1 tablespoon taco chip crumbs

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped scallions
1 teaspoon olive oil (the recipe I took this from called for two tablespoons but I could see no reason for it and I am avoiding fats, when possible.

Cut a large tomato in half, horizontally.  Scoop out pulp and place in small bowl.  
Keeping tomato half intact, discard seeds.  Chop the pulp.
Add to the pulp, feta cheese, taco chip crumbs, scallions, parsley and olive oil.
Mix together and spoon into tomato shells.  Place on  a cookie sheet with parchment paper (or not).  
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes.

Yummy eating!
