Now when you shop frugally ,
Today I was RAINED OUT of two very EXCITING SHOOTS... :(
it was cold and chilly so I "processed" a lot of fresh items that may have gone bad if I had not paid immediate attention.
I also did not take out my camera at all so the photos here do not do the items justice and do not qualify as an awesome foodie blog post that I strive for on occasion because I was in a hurry and trying to get a lot done in a little time.....
Anyone recognize the food mill? I have had and used this for years ...best way I know to de-skin and de-seed tomatoes....couldn't use it because of the arm injury but thankfully YES I was able to crank it today..... a bowl full of decapitated tomatoes later.... I had a cast iron pot of tomato juice...... I was able to make enough sauce after dicing and splicing another bowl full on onions/peppers/ mushrooms and spices.... for 3 sittings...starting with BAKED SPAGHETTI
|YUMMMMMMMMMMM BAKED SPAGHETTI FROM THE BARE TOMATO UP....HEALTHY TOO!|
and Wheat dinner rolls for tonight...... and desert? used that 50cents (frosting-less) boston creme I bought the other day and some gourmet frosting that I put together with that leftover chocolate from the fabulous s'mores bar we had at the Engagement Party.... check this out....
|BEFORE THE PARTY READEY TO ROAST AND BOAST....OMG ...|
