Good morning! It’s the last week of July! How did that happen!? We’ve had alot of fun this summer with trips, visits to the pool and playing with friends.
This summer, I’ve been getting into making whatever I can “homemade.” I recently made tomato sauce in the crockpot!
It was so easy. I cut up about 8 regular tomatoes and tossed them in the crockpot. I also put 2 cans of diced tomatoes (with the juices) in and then threw in a whole bunch of herbs. I let it cook for about 8 hours on low and then used an immerision blender. I poured it into cans and popped it in the freezer. If I need tomato sauce, I just set it on the counter for the day and it thaws. SO GOOD!
My sweet friend Janee has taught me the art of canning. We made zucchini relish and strawberry jam last week. It was SOOO much fun and we made ALOT! Janee is an awesome cook and she’s taught me so much about healthy cooking (although we’ve been known to make some less than healthy food-like snow ice cream!) We have so much fun cooking together and she is a great teacher!
