We made it back alive from the land of 10,000 lakes. Wooohoo! I'll chat more about that later when I get my photos from the trip uploaded.
How are ya'll?
Today, my first full day back, I've spent making spaghetti sauce from the pounds and pounds of Roma tomatoes. I use a recipe that a co-worker gave me, combine that with a couple of my own secrets and VOILA...a sauce that can stand up to the best Prego/Rago/etc cans. Good tastin' *and* I know that the majority of the ingredients were made without pesticides, herbicides, or other chemical components. Only the garlic, bay leaves, and black pepper came from the store. Not too shabby. Certainly it takes a LOOOONG time to make, I spent 4 hours just peeling, coring and chopping the tomatoes, but the quality is worth the time.
