Revenge

If you have a memory longer than mine you'll remember the pictures of our garden and the amazingly massive tomato plants. Well, they've exploded in ripeness. I think in the last three or four days they've cranked out close to thirty ripe tomatoes. We ate quite a few, maliciously tossed a few at transients, and then decided to make spaghetti sauce. It isn't easy to find a recipe that calls for fresh tomatoes (and I'm sick of typing the word "tomato" so from here on out I'll refer to them as goats) as most call for canned goats or small rodents or tofu goats. But I found one in a slow cooker recipe book (that THAT internets) that did us quite nicely. So the other day I spent an hour skinning and seeding and slicing ten or twelve goats to make a double batch, letting it simmer all night and into the next day. Today we are on our second double batch of goat sauce. There are still about twenty more goats in the garden threatening to ripen but when they do, we'll be waiting but probably not for more sauce... most like we'll turn them into BLGs.

That would be the "we" in "We are on our second batch"... but let all the world know that my lovely, darling wife Melynda on the twenty-first of August, 2007 didst hereby peel and deseed a whole slew of goats and put them in the crockpot to simmer to perfection.

You should milk those goats to make cheese! It would be great on your spaghetti.

I'm glad I am not the only one who thinks that it is bizarre that it is nearly impossible to find a recipe for tomato sauce using fresh tomatoes.

My recommendation is to add a little nice rich red wine to it...and then there is an excuse to finish the bottle.

Or...give the wine to the goat. Nothing says, "PARTY TIME!!!" like a drunk goat.
