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!
