Yesterday I took the tomatoes I had cooked in the crockpot with garlic and onion and put them in the strainer. Let the juice all seep out and put that in a cooking pot. The tomatoes were then strained, the skins coming off (out the left side) and the sauce was put into a large pan with basil, Tuscany seasoning, caraway seed (yes, good and great added flavor!) and spinach....

I heated and canned the juice for smoothies and the sauce for later...

The other day I bought a giant cauliflower.... the size of a basket ball! It would barely fit into the shopping bag. Cut it up last night, cooked in salted water til soft. Drained well. Put back into pan, added some butter, Greek yogurt, ricotta cheese, and mashed them like potatoes.

I served the mashed cauliflower with a chicken thigh I had cooked in the crockpot with enchilada sauce the other day, topped it with some of the marinara sauce and feta cheese.

OMGOOD!!!!! That cauliflower is just AWESOME. Next time I'll serve it with some snipped chives on top. Wow, I'm drooling thinking about how good it was.

Hey, nuff said. Have a great day. Haircut for me day and meeting friends at 1600 for martinis! Yeowsa!
