I've been taking quite the hiatus!
Remember the Roasted Tomato Soup that we made back in August? Well, tomatoes were on sale for 48 cents a pound this weekend! I told Zach that we were going to buy $20 worth of tomatoes. We filled up 3 big plastic produce bags with tomatoes, and I was certain that we had tons and tons. It turned out we only had 12 pounds of tomatoes. 12 pounds of tomatoes that cost only $6!
I cut each one in half, drizzled them with olive oil, and roasted them at 400F for about 30 minutes. Then I ran them through the blender, and poured them into my quart sized mason jars. I felled each jar 3/4 of the way full, and put them in the freezer. We ended up with 6 quarts of frozen tomatoes!
I meant to go back to the store and buy more tomatoes, but never got around to it. Oh well, 6 jars of frozen tomatoes will end up making 24 bowls of tomato soup this winter!
