Hey, guess what? My pants are feeling kinda tight. In a “I’m a total fatty kinda way.” Why can’t bread and cheese be good for you? Why do we live in a world where things like bok choy and brown rice can be eaten by the bowl full and its ok? Why can’t I eat cheeseburgers for every meal and have it be ok? Seriously, it makes me mad. It makes me mad that I’m not totally in love with things like brown rice, but I am totally in love with things like pork. Its like being the girl with the perpetually horrible boyfriend. Why would I want to be eating a salad when I could be eating french fries? I dunno. How do you guys do it? Is there like a mind trick? Maybe if I close my eyes and plug my nose spinach will taste like nachos. Maybe I should eat all my meals after taking the miracle fruit and maybe then spinach would really taste like nachos. That would be rad.

Anyway… This Cherry Tomato and Thyme Tart is the stuff lunch is made of. For me anyway. There are tomatoes on it, so that to me, would count as basically eating a salad. I know, I’m a horrible unhealthy eater. So shoot me. ♥ Teri

    Wouldn’t life be wonderful if french fries were health food? This tart does look pretty tasty though, even if it is healthy!

    I know how you feel from the pants to the nachos! I really, really wish cheese were a vegetable. Or that I could have my 14-year-old metabolism back so I can eat cheese and bread all day to my hearts content. This looks so good!

    Cute little video! This is such a healthy- and tasty-looking dish. I usually pair cherry tomatoes with basil but thyme seems like a nice change.
