Tomatoes and Finally

So yesterday was my cleaning day but for some reason I did not get any "labour" done.
Today I decided to get it all done.
First of all I wanted to decide what to have for supper.
Hmmmm got lots of tomatoes!
How about a nice fresh tomatoe basil sauce with vermicelli.
Well I went to the garden and it seems like all of a sudden the romas have burst forth.
So with a trug full of tomatoes inside I went.
My morning was spent skinning and simmering.

In the end I ended up with four 500 ml jars of tomatoes and enough for a lovely fresh tomatoe sauce for supper.
I didn't add any seasoning to them except a few sprigs of basil and 2 garlic cloves to each jar.

I managed to get most of my cleaning done too ---- BONUS!!
I even got to take more pics of the garden before--

IT RAINED!!!!!!!
YAY!!! We haven"t had a good rain for about 3 months.
Gardens and grass are pretty parched.
There has even been talk of a water ban in our area.
Our mayor has given credit to residents of our town for doing our part in conserving water so no ban as yet.

Nothing like home-made tomato sauce. Love it. Glad it rained, too but it may affect our walks this week. Maybe see you tomorrow..maybe not. Deb
