The cherry tomatoes just keep coming! I go out every night and pick a handful of them. And every other day, I have to think of something to do with them. Pizza sauce this time.I grew this little onion, too. I only have one more left in the ground. I liked going out and picking an onion whenever I needed it. I'm sad that's over. I might have to grow more of them next year.
I blanched the tomatoes.
And then pulled their little skins off. Remember that peeled grapes halloween game where you thought you were touching eyeballs? It feels like that. EYEBALLS.
Then I sauteed my onion and some garlic, put the tomatoes in there and smashed them with a potato masher. I added basil and oregano and the rest of the sun dried cherry tomatoes and peppers I made last weekend.
Then I put it in a ziplock.
And here it is all frozen this morning, next to the corn and the ice packs. A little bit of summer in the freezer. Whee!
In an unrelated note, I was reading Cooking Light last night and there was this article with pictures of exercises that you could do to strengthen your arms and back and darned if I didn't rip those pages out, grab some soup cans and do them right there on the spot. What? Who am I turning into?! Usually, I rip them out, put them in the "exercises I'll do someday if I ever get serious about it" and then six months later, I throw them away because I haven't even looked at them and the folder's getting full. I am baffled by this new trend in my life. Baffled, I tell you! This running thing is screwing up everything. Bwhahaha!
