Saucy Saucy Cha Cha

Elisa and i went to the garden.  picked various things, but mostly TOMATOES!!! 

So… I brought them home, blanched them, peeled them, squeezed their guts out, put them into a pot that i borrowed from kjersti, large pot owner extraordinaire,  – added a bunch o’ stuff, and marinara was born!!

i’m going to try really hard to make some once a week until halloween when the tomatoes leave the planet so i’ll have enough for the whole year.

i especially like these jars!  i don’t know how the rest of you get jars with your last name on them…. you don’t?  oh, sorry to hear that! these are Classico pasta sauce jars that i saved. i figured since they said “mason” on them, we could use them as canning jars, and we can!!!!
