it’s ‘mater season

i’m not ashamed to say that i’m a VERY picky eater….i’m a meat and potatoes girl and will only eat my veggies in the raw (the veggies, not me!).  while i enjoy my pasta with olive oil and garlic, i married a good italian boy who loves his spaghetti with sauce!  over the years i’ve pretty much perfected my sauce recipe to the point where my family refuses to eat anyone else’s.  my sister, her sons and a few friends tend a huge garden….several gardens to be precise and she spends a lot of her summer canning to preserve the bounty.  this morning she and i spent some time juicing some of her tomatoes for a quadruple batch of my sauce.
