When you are a Retired Empty Nester,
nearly everyday is the same...
Do House Chores, Run Errands, Prepare Dinner...
Start over the next day!
I haven’t posted to my blog for nearly three weeks,
because, to be honest, it would be quite dull.
However, we are enjoying fresh produce
from Great Grandma’s Garden this fall.
That’s blog worthy, right?
Do you all peel your fresh tomatoes this way?
Immerse them in boiling water,
Then plunge them into ice cold water.
It’s a hot job, but it is so easy...the peelings come right off.
When the tomatoes were simmering,
I chopped the onion, pepper, garlic, and celery.
BTW, the pepper is from Great Grandma’s garden, too.
This sauce simmered all afternoon.
The next day I added ground beef, Italian sausage,
mushrooms, fresh basil, and all the seasonings.
Of course, we had to try some right away!
It is sooo delicious
with fresh Parmesan Cheese and a green salad.
While it seems labor intensive,
we have enough sauce for six more meals!
Nothing compares to the flavor of
homegrown garden vegetables.
I hope you all have had a chance to enjoy some of your own!
