So, you know how I posted Murphy’s Law of Tomatoes?
Turns out I lost a whopping… wait for it… TWO.
Now, I shan’t complain, because lots of folks farther east than I lost entire crops to Irene when it cames through. I lost a couple of tomatoes to overripening. Big whoop. That said, I found myself staring at this big bowl of tomatoes on my counter, at a loss. It seemed like too few to can. But too many to dice up for salad (whose greens, I might add, have long since gone to the wayside). Hrm.
So I added a lil’ bit o’ this, a lil’ bit o’ that… and had homemade tomato soup for dinner!
So, that constitutes today’s on my mind: the big bowl of soup that I’m about to eat.
What? You didn’t think I would be organized enough to take pictures when I first made it, did you? In fact, I made the mistake of mentioning said homemade tomato soup in my Facebook status and ended up getting questioned on my recipe.
…recipe? You mean, like, measurements? Oh, dear.
What do you think? Should I recreate my soup – this time using measurements – so that I can share it with the world?
Furthermore, can y’all point me to a good tomato sauce recipe that cans well? Turns out, I still have quite a few green tomatoes joining the ranks, and I’m determined to can some of them. Thanks muchly!
