Good Evening my dears...
My.... We are having quite the cold weather here in New Brunswick..
Some schools to the north of the province have even been closed..
We do not do that much here in Canada as we Canadians are used to the cold and wind and snow...
Dear son sent me this picture of his Charlie..
Dustin tagged the picture..
...even the poor dog is cold..
The other day when Terry and I went shopping we bought a lovely big bag of tomatoes as they were on special..
We love tomatoes..
Even in the Winter we think they are wonderful although they don't have the flavor of summer ones they are still good..
On sandwiches, in salads, pasta and such..
Anyway.. On with the story..
We brought all of the groceries in ..
Or we thought we did until the next morning when we wanted one for breakfast and they could not be found..
We had left them in the truck..
Later on Terry went out to get them and they were frozen solid.. (of course)..
It was -21 degrees Celsius...
This is after they had thawed out and you can see a few cracks..
I am not throwing them out..
I made a lovely big bottle of Salad Dressing..
The dear man wanted me to turn all of the tomatoes into this but I thought this would do for now..
Here is the recipe for it...
I was sure I had posted it before but I cannot find it..
My No.1 House Dressing..
In a chopper or blender place 1 cup of good mayo
1/2 cup of tomatoes seeded and chopped..
1/3 cup of chopped onion
2 T. cider vinegar
2 T. oil
2 sprigs of parsley
Blend in blender until smooth..
This will keep in the fridge for quite a while..
It never lasts long enough for me to find out..
I usually double the batch..
And then there were still a few tomatoes left so I made something I had planned to make all Fall but did not get to it..
Here is the recipe just in case you freeze a few tomatoes.. grin..
I halved the recipe as I wanted to know if we would like it..
In your slow cooker place
4 pounds of fresh tomatoes
1/2 cup of chopped onions
Place on high for 1 hour and then add...
2/3 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
2 tsp. fine sea salt
In a cheesecloth place..
1 cinnamon stick broken
1/2 tsp. each of..
1 bay leaf
Add to mixture..
Turn your slow cooker down to low and cook for several hours with cover on sideways..
I did it all afternoon and then after supper I used my stick blender to blend it all up..
Or you could let it cool and then place in your blender..
I just used a recycled mayo bottle and put it in the fridge..
In my opinion I will not be eating Heinz again..
This taste like I am sure ketchup is supposed to taste like..
Although, my dear hubby will stick to Heinz.. grin..
That is all for today ..
We are looking forward to our company tomorrow night for supper..
Hope to share some pics with you later..
I would like to welcome the new followers..
We love having you..
Thanks for taking time to visit.. I appreciate it so much..
And leaving your lovely notes are the icing on the cake..
Take care, dear hearts..
