For now, it's still the tomatoes that are keeping me on task. Recently I picked a whole LOT of these little babies and slow roasted them with a tiny bit of olive oil and a few cloves of garlic. Don't they look beautiful all spread out on the baking sheet?
Then I took the by-product, which was thick and juicy and sweet and amazing-smelling, and pureed it all up in the Vita-Mix, along with a small pinch of salt. With all those tomatoes, I got two jars of super crazy good tomato sauce. Not sure how I'll put it to use, but I'm sure inspiration will strike, in the darkness of winter... when the spirit calls out for anything reminiscent of summer.
