I roasted tomatoes, per Jennifer Jo's instructions and inspiration.
Mine were not paste tomatoes, so I think I should have roasted them longer. . . but the house did smell like a Tuscan granny's, so I was happy.
The first butternuts are in market! We make a big deal out of making Genevieve her first pumpkin pie. I baked the butternut with the tomatoes.
Carrot tops waiting for a run down to the freezer - I'll save them to make stock.
I made the pudding I was raised with: Graham Cracker Pudding. Probably the final pudding of the summer.
And chopped cheap bell peppers to freeze. Three for $1 at market (but they HAD been four for a dollar a few weeks ago!) First they freeze on a cookie sheet, then I scoop them into bags. They are loose, so I can just take out the amount I want instead of defrosting a whole bag.
Sometimes I wonder what to blog about because I've got most of my activities On the Record. Look at all those links above - I've written about this stuff already. My default blog posts are the new things, the improved stuff. . . but that is not representative of my quotidian work! Really, as I think here, I see that this blog does add another layer of purpose to the work I love. I reflect more because I'm writing about how I keep house and care for my family. And you are part of the richness too - thank you for your comments and conversation.
