After chores I went to the garden and picked all kinds of things to put in a sauce.
At 4 the Maynard's were hosting their 11th annual tomato party, and I participated in a contest for the best tomato dish.
Onions, garlic, peppers, carrots, tomatoes, Italian parsley, basil, salt, pepper and a little sugar.
Used my Vegetti to make zucchini pasta with a couple carrots for color. Stir fried it until it was just tender and planned to serve it at room temperature (topped with Romano cheese). The sauce would be warm and served on top.
Diane has always had spectacular gardens and also happens to be an amazing cook. She and Larry know how to throw a top shelf party.
We brought her a bouquet of our very different sunflowers.
This tomato pie won first prize, and my sauce came in second.
We had a chance to really catch up with Bart and Denise, who we have not seen in ages.
You can't imagine all the spectacular dishes that were made. Makes me tired to think about this ginormous tasting.
As we were getting ready to leave, it looked like rain, then we ended up with a very colorful sunset.
Night all. I need to take a nap (or just go to bed) and it's only 8:40.
