Goat Cheese Stuffed Roasted Tomatoes

It has been over a week now but I would love to share our fun Thanksgiving week with our parents!
We picked them up from the airport and headed to a lovely lunch at the famous "The Ivy" in Beverly Hills. We didn't have a celebrity siting, but we felt like celebrities as we dined in this adorable place.

 Then we went over to the Hollywood Costume exhibit, where all the famous movie costumes are on display. It was really neat! The exhibit is up until March, I encourage you to visit it.
 Outside the LACMA at the lighting exhibit! Hmmm not sure what this face I am making was, but it was our best photo, ha!
 Our cutey potutey parents!
On Thanksgiving day, Mommasita and Jeffrey!
 Our delicious Thanksgiving spread! Third times a charm, we had a much easier time preparing our dinner this year. It was a hit!!
 Ended Thanksgiving night with a game of cornhole in the front yard.
The next day we got into the Christmas Spirit and decorated our house!

Goat Cheese Stuffed Roasted Tomatoes
Plum tomatoes on the vine
4 oz goat cheese
1/4 tsp dried oregano
2 Tbsp olive oil
sprinkle of salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375
Place tomatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes or until they begin to wilt and split open.
Place goat cheese in a bowl and heat in microwave for 30 second. Stir in salt, pepper and oregano.

Place in a ziploc baggie squeezing all the cheese to one corner.
Remove the tomatoes from the oven. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds from the tomatoes.
You may find it is easier to gently squeeze them out.
Cut a hole in the corner of the ziploc bag of cheese and squeeze the cheese into the middle of each tomato.

Serve as a side dish or as an appetizer for your next party!
