Home Made Cherry Tomato Sauce

Home Made Cherry Tomato Sauce

 

So a few weeks ago I tried getting rid of my hundreds of cherry tomatoes by turning them into a sauce. I used almost a quart of tomatoes so if you need to unload on your tomato crop heres what I used:

1 quart tomatoes
1/4 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1/2 small white onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp pesto
pinch of salt and pepper
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 pinch of sugar
1 tb olive oil

* I processed and cooked the garlic and onion first, then I processed the tomatoes, leaving them in chunks. I added the rest of the ingredients and let it cook down on the stove for a few hours, stirring on occasion. The sauce tastes extremely fresh and unlike canned, store-bought tomato sauce. Be careful not to over process the tomatoes or it will get too watery, don’t worry about the seeds, they are too small and too many to remove so just leave them in. It’s not the greatest sauce I’ve ever had, but it gets rid of a lot of tomatoes in 1 day.

Veggie Pizza (The Good Kind)

Veggie Pizza (The Good Kind)

My mom used to make this for us kids when we were starving after school. It’s a delicious and nutritious way to make kids eat their vegetables. The best part is, you can use any veggies you want!

As long as use use the cream cheese in moderation, or fat free (you won’t really be able to taste the difference) you won’t ever have to feel bad eating this pizza after.

DIZZY FOR IZZY!

Ok so I freaking LOVE Izzy soda.  I’ve been buying it more often than usually and it is my favorite soda except, it’s not really soda!  It’s delicious sparkling juice.  Most contain over 70 % real juice, close to 2 servings and it tastes twice as good as soda.  I was surprise how sweet it was since they do not add sugar, it’s the perfect level of sweetness.  Personally my two favorites are grapefruit and clementine, but they all are pretty good. I even used some in a margarita to replace that crappy garbage mix they sell. Check it:

1.5 Measure Good Silver Tequila (1800 is very good, otherwise Patron is the best)
1 Measure Grand Marnier
3 Measures Izzy Grapefruit
1/2 Measure Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice (about 1 small lime)
*Garnish with Lime: trust me that pink and green really look cool
~If you wanna be a hipster serve it in a freaking mason jar duh~

Also, the Lime Izzy will probably taste good too, but I find Lime Margarita’s a little plain.  I’ve also added Ginger Ale and Passion fruit juice to my margarita’s as the base.
