Simple Baked Tomatoes; credit cards — 4 Comments

  1. I’m just curious but as ex pats, can’t you still have a card based in the US? Or do they frown on that just on principle?

    I would try this recipe, but at this point, I’m rather sick of looking at tomatoes and I have a full size rimmed sheet pan, you know, the 18X13 one that barely fits inside your oven, double stacked and then some with tomatoes and I have to pick the garden again tomorrow. As much as I don’t want to because I really don’t have the room, I’m afraid I’m going to have to freeze them all again.

    • Hahaha! I told you that you would soon be inundated! Been there (2 weeks ago) It does get overwhelming. I ended just peeling, cutting into chunks and freezing to sort out later. I predict lots of good soups and sauces this winter.
      I do have a US credit card still (with the big credit line lol) And I use it for travel (it earns miles). And I still have a US checking account with a large credit line, 😉 But we just wanted a local card. It’s handy to have a credit card – but they are so difficult….
      Of course, the French don’t have a lot of personal debt, either….. Funny how that works.
