We measure things in horsepower, football fields and dog years, but do you know the latest tomato unit of measurement?
A shirt full.
Matt gave birth to 100 tomatoes from the garden!
We have more than we know what to do with.
Although of course spaghetti was at the top of the use list!
Delicious summer vegetables were seared in a pan with a can of tomato paste: zucchini, eggplant and about a dozen of those tomatoes. We added dashes of Italian seasoning, salt and Garlic Gold for more flavor depth, but let the maters do the talking.
On the side we cooked a package of mystery meat that I’m pretty sure was ground turkey that Karen left in our freezer during her move. It was delicious!!
Served over some whole wheat pasta
This dinner TOTALLY hit the spot. I finished every bite, veggies and all, which is a first for me this week.
This afternoon I snoozed on the couch before a call. I say snoozed because I put on the Pandora Spa station and just rested – I’m not sure I actually feel asleep, but it was a completely rejuvenating 20 minutes.
After my call (really gearing up for this new project!), I opened a jar of sunflower butter and dove in. It’s been 17 days since I finished my last jar [thanks, blog, for that data], and I MISSED IT SO MUCH!
And one final thought for the night – thank you Mrs. Compton for the beautiful baby blanket!! Love the colors!!
I’m in search of a great book to read. Something adventuresome, written in the last few years, easy to read but with a great plot. Any recommendations?
