We move on….
Hard to believe autumn is here! Poor “Mr. Hosta” on my deck is looking very “autumnal”.
Dennis and I had some plans for the day, but were both VERY low energy this morning, so we postponed the plans and slept in. We also decided to have a “run a couple of quick errands, then spend the day at home” day. YAY!! When we eventually got going, we made turkey bacon, scrambled eggs, toast and sliced tomatoes (from Clint’s garden).
I decided to get cracking with Alison’s tomato press and Clint’s tomatoes.
As I mentioned, all of the instructions for the tomato press are in Italian. We got it working, but STILL have no idea what the little beige “disk” is for.
I roasted the tomatoes for a while to soften them up a bit.
FUN!!!!!!! Gadgets are FUN!!!!! (and WOW….does this thing EVER press the pulp out!)
Voila, 7 jars of unseasoned tomato sauce.
Dennis wrote the “Tomato Sauce Song” and Neva helped. silly…
I then used Clint’s basil to make a batch of “lower fat” pesto. (I cut down on the oil, upped the lemon juice. I also used walnuts instead of pine nuts and cut the quantity of the nuts by half)
And voila….little 1/2 cup jars of pesto. These are in the freezer “as we speak”.
There was no “pesto” song, but I Neva was in the thick of things. This is her at my feet during the process.
Afterward, Dennis and I split a pumpkin beer (livin’ on the edge…) and had a bit of asiago cheese and some lean prosciutto.
(Neva gave the same look of fascination to the prosciutto as the pesto. Funny)
Dinner tonight? Bison burgers (on a whole wheat bun with mustard, bbq sauce, a bit of melted sharp cheese and a piece of leftover turkey ‘bacon” from breakfast) with oven “fries”. And we had a glass of wine. Cheers to a quiet night at home.
Tomorrow we (meaning Dennis, myself AND the Canon Rebel) will be out and about a bit more than today. (and more jars will be filled too). More then. I hope your weekend is going well!!!
