What's not cool about tomatoes in a wine box .... more so, what's not cool about having paid $7.95 for this many tomatoes (and another grocery bag of them too).
When we got home, I decided to make homemade pasta and pizza sauce - with fresh herbs from my garden. Yup ... I have an herb garden. Martha Freakin' Stewart people...
And it was really fun to make up my own recipe to add to my families recipe box (which was a gift at my wedding shower… thank you Gretchen and Regina).
I’m hoping this becomes a Gotfam yearly tradition – the 'kick-off to fall' sauce making day.
And while I'm hoping for things ... I also hope that next year it doesn't take me an entire day to only make 4 containers worth of sauce to freeze. 6 containers maybe ... 8 would be great ... 4 seems ridiculous. But, in my defense...I had to fester about each and every ingredient to make it recipe box worthy. Because maybe ... just maybe...someday my kids will make my recipe too.
And hell, as long as I'm hoping for things - I hope that Avery starts sleeping through the night ... tonight.Don't judge me for putting her in her brother's old sleeper ... (and on a side note... they look identical to me...so cute)
