Among the tons of gorgeous flowers, berries, apples, and produce we got through our CSA this week, we ended up with 10 lbs of eating tomatoes, 7 pints of plum tomatoes, and 2 pints of cherry tomatoes. Deliciously insane… time to put up jars of tomato paste and sauce!


Christmas in July

For some reason, I am feeling really restless lately. I am tired of the sun, heat, construction everywhere, my job, the long slog towards my Gastronomy MLA (enjoyable as school is most of the time, all things considering)… I obviously need a change of pace. I think the onset of autumn will do it, but for now, I am obsessing about Christmas. After enjoying it during our marvellous (as Roald Dahl would say) 2011 in the UK, I think we’re going to make sticky toffee pudding a household Christmas tradition. I may need to test some recipes before then…
