I was a late starter today . Last night I fell asleep while sewing and watching t,v .Have you ever nodded off and found yourself waking up with your hand poised ready to sew . Of course after a short cat nap I wasn't so tired . I changed over to crochet and didn't go to bed till 1,30 .
I was tired this morning but woke at my usual 6 , had a cuppa and went back to bed .
When I opened my front door there was a bag of tomatoes on the step .
I knew I had to start cooking , so , this is my concoction .
Tomatoes , onion, garlic, red pepper , celery, mustard seeds , olive oil . a good shake of cumin , chilli flakes , sea salt , black pepper , then I had to go into spider territory for rosemary and thyme .
The result after roasting is to be blitzed and put in the freezer . It will be used for a pasta dressing .
I have been to our sewing group this afternoon . The final total for the little quilt exhibition was £275 . very rewarding .
Tonight I have to bottle my blackberry vinegar . I sterilised the bottles and left them in the hot oven when I took out the tomato mix up .
The kitchen smells good . My dinner tonight is black eye beans and courgettes , and a few sauté potatoes . I'm not a vegetarian , far from it but a veggie dinner goes down well once a week .
Now the weather is cooler it's nice to sew with a quilt draped on my knees .
Does anyone have a recipe for using more tomatoes > I don't want pickle or chutney . I've done that .
