Hello.........We may well be getting towards the end of November, but believe it or not today I used the last of the Tomatoes from the garden to make some pasta sauce. Fancy that home grow Tomatoes in November, just perfect.
I was lucky enough to be given some plum tomato seedlings by a lovely friend earlier in the year, which I planted into a grow bag, by the garden wall that leads down to the Summerhouse, it's a bit of a suntrap so I hoped I'd be picking tomatoes in the Summertime.
Alas this was not to be, as I guess the English sunshine was just not hot enough for these Italian beauties. So a couple of weeks ago I cut the last of the green tomatoes and place them in a paper bag with a banana and as if by magic over a week or so they turned red.
So this is my second batch of chunky roasted vegetable sauce from the garden, along with the tomatoes I added red onion, courgette, aubergine, red pepper and butternut squash all roasted up in the oven with garlic, olive oil, some basil and oregano. Yummy happiness on a tray.
After they were roasted I them put into a pan with some organic chopped tomatoes, sadly I didn't grow enough of my own for the sauce, and left them to simmer slowly until really tender.
Today I had some for lunch served with some baked cod, with some going in the freezer for later and a pot saved to have with Brown Rice Pasta tomorrow, yummy.
Wishing you all a great weekend
