Slow Cooked Tomato Sauce
We do - actually - eat more than dessert here! I will admit that dessert gets a lot of attention - pretty much equal to the main course.... sort of..... maybe.......
Anyways - the tomato plants are churning out fresh tomatoes pretty regularly and I needed a way to use some up and get them off the table. Tomato sauce made in the slow cooker seemed like a great idea.
Tomatoes and green peppers - fresh off the vine that morning!
The onions and carrots came from the big box market - our (sort of) "green thumb" couldn't pull these off this year. They are still in the ground - setting there, waiting, doing nothing - their days are numbered....
The basil's been in the fridge for a few days. While it looks a little worse for the wear - it was awesome and the smell filled the kitchen.... ahhh!
A glass of wine, some rotisserie chicken and a piece of bread..... the only thing missing is dessert!
