Sweet Roasted Tomatoes

I’m sure I tell you this all the time: I’m a huge novelty seeker. If I eat the same thing two days in a row – even if it’s just one component of a meal – it means I really bloody like it. I ate these tomatoes last night for dinner, and I’m eating them for lunch (right now, this is pretty much live blogging) today.
