I had such a fun time last summer…. chopping and freezing all the lovely green and yellow and orange and white tomatoes.
I also froze lots of red Roma’s, which are all gone.
Actually, everything is almost all gone.
I put all the pretty colored tomatoes to good use over the winter. I used the orange in a Smoked … Continue reading.....
I’m getting tired of winter cooking.
I long for salads and tomatoes and zucchini and anything cooked on the barbecue grill.
This happens in reverse in September, when I can hardly stand even the thought of one more meal from the grill!
