Blessed with a harvest!

These tomatoes on my counter weren't grown by me - I wish they had been. Mine succumbed a nasty blight, and I ended up harvesting little more than a few cherry tomatoes.

My brother Karl, (bless his heart) came to my rescue and gave me a large grocery bag full of slightly unripe tomatoes from his garden, and they've been sitting on my counter getting ready for me to use. We've been making BLT's through out the week, and tonight I will be using many of them for my favorite roasted tomato sauce. Hopefully there will be some left for me to make fresh salsa this weekend.

By the way, if you are ever in the need of a rigorous intellectual challenge, my brother has written two books, Having Words with God, and The Heart of Biblical Narrative. I have yet to delve into them, but one of these days!

If you want to, you could add finely chopped or food processed carrots instead of honey to the roasted sauce recipe-- it adds the sweetness and some good vitamins and brings down the acidity (maybe 2 to 4 whole carrots). This is close to my recipe. I freeze it too.

Thanks, friend. Adding carrots is an excellent idea - I will definitely do that next time. I love the idea of adding extra vitamins. :)
