We are back into our late summer routines. We just spent Sunday on Whidbey Island and returned home that evening after the PG family picnic.
We were moving slowly on Monday but did get light house keeping done and the laundry. On Tuesday Tom worked on taking geranium cuttings and I did my long PT routine and 40 minutes/6.5 miles on the stationary bike.
I edited and filed all of my photos and sent email copies of some to family members. There are always lots of little things to do, and it was 3:45 before I moved to the patio to read, where I soon fell asleep. :-/
We had another bunch of plum tomatoes picked and Tom presented me with a basketful of poblano peppers, so today I was farm wife, processing crops.
The peppers are halved, seeded, and roasted.Then they are diced, put in cartons and frozen. I just chip out some when I use them.
The tomatoes are halved and roasted with oregano.
The skins just lift off, I put them in a pot and use a small immersion blender to mash them up. Then I simmer them, with basil added. to reduce them down and thicken them.
It's a lot of work for one carton of sauce, but it beats anything that comes our of a jar.
