NO BAKE TOMATO SAUCE
Cut up your tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic and basil. Lightly toss with olive oil. Cover bowl with clear wrap and let sit at room temp for 4 hours.

My buddy Marilyn has a ton of tomatoes in her garden. Several different varieties. She gave me some green tomatoes for my special green tomato casserole a few weeks ago. Then she had me over for supper and we ate tomatoes stuffed with tuna salad and steamed asparagus. Delish!! I took this photo of some of her crop that she and her daughter-in-law made into canned salsa. Maybe she'll have me over for a Mexican feast? Hint, hint.
Yesterday I went back over to Marilyn's place and she loaded me up with a mess of tomatoes. I'm going to roast some of them and then freeze them. It'll be my first attempt, so I'll let you know how they turn out. I had a luscious tomato and cheese on whole wheat sandwich last night, then topped it off with grape tomatoes I purchased at the vegetable stand my friend Fern Yoder owns. I'm really overdosing on tomatoes (which I used to get hives from!). But when they are fresh and sweet like they are now, and right off the vine, I have no self control!! Maybe I'll go on an all tomato diet. Patrick is back in Phoenix so I can eat weirdly now. ;<)
Hope everyone is having a great week. love,Cassie
