Saucy


The Bag Lady took this picture quite some time ago, thinking she would blog about making salsa with completely home-grown ingredients.... and then promptly forgot to post it. She also forgot to take any more pictures, although she DID remember to actually make the salsa.

She has one last bowl full of tomatoes that are finally ripe, but there aren't enough of them to make a large enough batch of salsa to can, so she will probably just cook them up and make spaghetti sauce. A few tomatoes, some onions, garlic and ground beef will make a tasty sauce, don't you think?

Um, yes, I do think so! Your veggie picks never fail to make me hungry!

the Bag Lady said...

Well, Clare, hop on a plane and come for supper! :)

Hilary said...

Yum.. fresh veggies. I bet your salsa is delicious. Especially since I seem to recall that you leave out that evil herb cilantro.

Geosomin said...

Mmm. Sounds delish.

I've been loving the fresh veggies lately. Wish I had a garden of my own instead of sponging off of friends and relatives :)

messymimi said...

Amazing how the same few ingredients can make so many different tasty things.

Love your veggie pic.

Remembering to make the salsa is the important part.
Oh, the spaghetti sauce sounds good.

solarity said...

ytheAnything involving tomatoes and onions sounds good.

Conny said...

You see, you were too busy making salsa to remember posting pictures. Will you jar some up for later winter use?

P.S. Answer to your were those pictures taken: near Zion in Southern Utah.

the Bag Lady said...

Hilary - gotta love fresh veggies (and yes, I leave out that evil cilantro!)

Geo - there's always next year for a garden!

messymimi - thanks. Yes, it just takes a little alteration to make all manner of good things!

dfLeah - yes, remembering is always a good thing. And I hope the spaghetti sauce will be another good thing.

Mary Anne in Kentucky - ulp - you hit on one kind of soup I cannot stand! Shudder. But your WV definition cracked me up!

the Bag Lady said...

Conny - I did jar quite a lot of salsa, but the spaghetti sauce will be put in containers and frozen for later!
Your vacation pictures were gorgeous! Now I wanna go to Utah!

Reb said...

Mmm, tomato soup is good when you make it from scratch! Spaghetti sauce will be good too though.

the Bag Lady said...

I much prefer spaghetti sauce to tomato soup!

kcinnova said...

I've got chips and soup bowls. Which shall I bring?

Miz said...

you forgot to blog it and I forgot to ever make it.

the Bag Lady said...

kcinnova - I've got both, so bring both. :)

Miz - now I'm curious - how DO you pronounce it? I say tomayto.

Janell said...

Can you send some down here?

the Bag Lady said...

Sure, Janell. FedEx.

Dawn said...

Your harvest looks brimming full of country goodness. Probably just as well you forgot to blog about it because by the sounds of it, we would have descended upon you like a ravishing horde.

JavaChick said...

Fresh tomatoes make the best sauce or salsa. :)

I used the last of my tomatoes a couple of weekends ago to make a small batch of salsa. My garden did pretty well this year, but tomato season still went by too fast.

the Bag Lady said...

Dawn - I would love to have you all descending in a ravishing horde (oh, wait, did that sound nasty?)!

JavaChick - oh yes, salsa made with fresh tomatoes is so.darned.good! And the season always seems to go too fast.

CherylK said...

Those are some good lookin' veggies and I can just taste the salsa. I wouldn't turn down the spaghetti sauce, either!

the Bag Lady said...

cheryl - it's always tastier with home-grown veggies, no matter what the dish is!
