This was a surprise victory. My husband said it was the best carrot soup he’s ever had. Do you ever have a little bit of curry left over? Not enough for lunch, but enough that you want to do something with it? Well that is […]

This was so simple and good. I really miss BLT’s since I stopped eating much bread.
I’ve used a lettuce leaf as the bread in the past, but today I just sliced some yummy tomatoes from the garden, sprinkled on salt and pepper, dabbed a bit of mayonnaise and then placed a piece or two of bacon on each slice.
You could dress them up a bit by only using the most beautiful slices and adding a sprinkling of fresh chives or basil on top and they would make an easy and delicious appetizer.
I was happy to have the “rustic” version of them to myself along with a bowl of squash for a quick lunch.
My awesome in-laws put up 190 quarts of tomatoes and gave us six cases! Canning tomatoes in late summer is a tradition and good family time. We only got there for the last 30 quarts, but I’m glad my kids got to participate. A couple more seasons and they will feel confident they can do it when they are grown.
We use a lot of these over the course of a year. Mostly to make Chili-Gili (otherwise known as goulash and also a family tradition), balsamic tomato soup, chicken chili, etc. Some years I’ve run out and used canned tomatoes. I’ve found some that were okay, but they’re never as good as these. My kids devour them, even the ones how don’t like fresh tomatoes (which I can’t comprehend.)
