The boy and I spent part of our holiday weekend getting sauced.
With fresh tomatoes from our garden!
We had Roma, Cherry, Brandywine and Early Girl Tomatoes piling up so we decided to heat things up in the kitchen.
When it comes to sauce, I'm not much of a recipe gal. I'm more like Clemenza. I just start adding stuff. Stuff like fresh Garlic, Onions, Peppers, and Mushrooms.
Even some of the Green Peppers came from my humble garden.
Look! I grew the smallest Green Pepper ever! I loved that little guy, so tiny.
After lots and lots of fresh Basil, Oregano and Rosemary, the house was smelling soooo good. Added a bit of wine, a bit of spicy Italian sausage and then we let it simmer for a good 3.5 - 4 hours. It was too tempting not to go in there and test it...several times.
It did manage to make the house a bazillion degrees (it was 90 F outside when we started), however, it was worth it. After the hugest plates of Spaghetti, we gladly froze a ton of sauce to enjoy later. We're hoping that our plants give us enough to do another batch before the season is over. Too full to do anything else, we settled in for an evening of strange movies on Sundance.
Well, that was my holiday. How was yours? Do anything fun? I certainly hope so.
