Tonight I really needed a snack. I didn't want to spend money or leave the house to find ingredients. I didn't want to use the stove, either, it's pretty warm tonight. There were three Mrs. T's pierogies in the freezer, an almost-empty jar of minced garlic in the fridge, and a bowl of my own tomatoes on the counter. I chopped a tomato and threw it on the pierogies. I covered that with minced garlic and a blob of olive oil. Salt, pepper, etc and into the microwave covered for five minutes, on high.
Here it is before it went in:
And here's what I got back. It was great - the tomatoes cooked down into a brothy sauce that was perfect with the mashed potatoes in the pierogies, and the garlic made everything as fragrant and garlicky as a Les Blank movie.
