Reidski had intended a few weeks ago to make me a meal which required puy lentils. Sadly, on that particular day the gas wouldn't work on the hob and we decided after some consideration against eating raw lentils so the lentils went back in the cupboard.
He then happened to notice a recipe on the back on the packet for a puy lentil salad no less and decided he was going to make that for today. The only problem with that was that the recipe called for some sun blushed tomatoes. Now I have to admit that sun blushed tomatoes do sound a rather effeminate food item, and I am a girlie girl. Reidski felt bad enough at the thought of sneaking some sun blushed tomatoes into his shopping basket alongside his beer supply for the week, but to make matters worse, they could only be found behind the deli counter in Sainsburys and that meant he had to ask for some sun blushed tomatoes...out loud. He was relieved however that the big tough looking bloke in front of him in the queue also asked for some sun blushed tomatoes...but sorry that the woman serving was hard of hearing so the men had to shout 'SOME SUN BLUSHED TOMATOES PLEASE'. Actually, I don't really know if she was hard of hearing...but if I were her I might pretend to be if men were asking for sun blushed tomatoes.
Anyway, it was very delicious indeed..it also included feta cheese and yellow peppers..yum, but I am afriad he will refuse to make it again if it means a return to the deli counter, so we urgently need a macho alternative name for sun blushed tomatoes. Any suggestions?
