My post is late today, because I've been wrestling with a case of tomatoes.
They started out like this.
Then I had to skin them (requiring both a boiling water bath, followed by an ice water bath), squeeze the juice from them, slice and cook them. Then they looked like this (though my pot was huge!)
Then it was time to puree the sauce to separate out any extra seeds or skin. Leaving a huge pot of this.
So, what do you think we're having for dinner tonight?

So there's a day at home with me. And my tomatoes. Which I did not grow. But I don't want to leave you without something inspirational. Here's a link to photos of the homes of five famous writers. Authors like Stephen King, Anne Rice, and several others with amazing homes. I'd show you mine, but there are tomato sauce splatters everywhere.
Even on the dog.
Would you like your home to appear on a site like this someday?
