I’m not what you would call a ‘Tofu’ kind of gal. It’s the last thing I would pull off the shelf at the supermarket if I needed to come up with dinner ‘on the fly’.

I mean seriously… like the last thing.

Satay Saturday

There is something about “sticks” that make food more desirable to my munchkins… a boring turkey sandwich becomes exciting and gourmet when I cut it into squares and stick a toothpick into each one. Juice is yummy in a glass, but freeze it on a stick so you can lick it?! SO MUCH BETTER… right? Candy… so fun to eat. Candy on a stick (i.e. A Lollipop)… a special treat. Thus, chicken served right on the skewers it was cooked on… MAGNIFICENT!!

I love when they get excited about their dinner before it enters their little mouths.

Okay, so I’m not sure what to call this recipe, but it’s amazing and you MUST try it!

The closest thing I can think of is jelly… no, more like preserves because it’s not smooth… so I guess “jam” is a good name for it. There you go, this post should have been called, “Onion Jam”. At least your handy RECIPE printable will no longer be titled “Onion Stuff”… “JAM” it is!!

I am smokin’ hot.

NO really, I’m serious.

A savory take on Jam

At first I dismissed the idea of “J is for Jam” altogether because I thought there would be no “dinner” recipes made with jam…

Only desserts came to mind.

Then I realized that jams would make a FANTASTIC glaze for meats… especially chicken or pork. But more on that in another post.

A “jam” that I definitely did not expect but ended up LOVING is the subject of today’s post: TOMATO Jam!

Throw out any pre-conceived notions that just entered your head… you NEED to try this!

Tomatoes are a fruit after all… why not make jam out of them?

This is amazing on a burger!!! Take a look…
