Tomato Sauce

 

It was 95 degrees today and I decide to make homemade tomato sauce.

What was I thinking??

014

I was thinking this is way healthier and tastier.

I mean look at all those organic veggies bubbling up in there!!

016Here is my go to in a jar brand next to my homemade sauce.

They both look good to me,

but I still think I am going for homemade sauce for tonight!

Do you ever make sauce from scratch?

Hopefully not on a super hot day like I did!!

Do you have a great recipe I could try?

I would love to try it out!!

Let me know friend  and have a blessed weekend with those you love the most!!

Father’s Day Foods

Oh my gosh.

I am so full.

We had so much food for Father’s Day.

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and boy did we not only found the way but we paved it!!

My husband was spoiled by our kiddos.

He got to sleep in and was brought breakfast in bed by his littlest cutie.

030She was so proud of the breakfast she made!

Then I put a huge roast in the crockpot with potatoes and carrots before we left for church.

While we were there Belle made her Daddy a bbq rub.Father's Day Food 001Then when we got home we made Daddy chorizo and beans for more breakfast.

He loves chorizo!

Rebecca then gave him her awesome gift of homemade bbq sauce…

Father's Day Food 002…and some of mom’s famous (in house only) salsa.

Father's Day Food 003Isn’t that the cutest labels she put on there?

I will have to find out where she down loaded those from.

On the top of this one she modge podged some pretty paper to give it just that much more love.

She also pre packaged some in little tuppers for his lunch this week.

Such a sweet girl.

So, gave Daddy some chips to eat a bunch of his salsa.

Watched a movie with him and had some great Dad’s root beer Popsicles.

The roast is still in the crockpot making the house smell very homey.

Michael Jr really wanted to make Dad some of his favorite Daddy Dogs though.

So into the kitchen he went.

040This was monumental.

I had to get proof that HE DID THIS HIMSELF.

He made the whole dog meal for not only Dad, but for everyone.

Shocking for sure.

He hates the kitchen.

052He did good!

They all got gobbled up by surprised sisters and Dad before I could get a picture of them done!!

Rebecca made Cherry Bombs.

034I know.

I put weight on just looking at them.

I still ate two though.

They are maraschino cherries wrapped in a cake ball and dipped in chocolate.

032

Amazing treat.

They may not be pretty but they are delicious.

Belle served the pie she made her Daddy too.

050Did Daddy love that one too?

Lets see…..

Father's Day Food 004Oh my yes.

Oh we missed dinner time.

The roast is ready honey.

What?

Your not hungry?

Really?

I wonder why?

Positive point…I do not have to make dinner tonight!

Hope you all had a blessed day that you shared with your Daddy too!!

Cheesy Corn Soup

Here is something we eat on chilly days.

Its a mostly homemade soup.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons of butter

1 small onion chopped

2 carrots chopped

1 head of broccoli

1 box of veggie broth (I use organic of course)

1 cup of frozen corn kernels

2 cups of grated cheese (I use mild cheddar but any cheese will do)

4 oz of cream cheese (half a box)

Salt and pepper to taste

**I use organic for everything I possibly can. Use what you are comfortable using though.

In your soup pot melt your butter. Then add your chopped onions and carrots and saute them.

As they are cooking take the head of broccoli and break off the small trees. Take them to your cheese grater and start grating off the tops. You will have a pile of little bits of dark green. I really love broccoli in my soup so I will use the whole head but use what you are comfortable with.

When the onions and carrots are soft add the box of veggie broth and broccoli bits to your cooking pot and bring to a soft boil.

Add the cup of frozen corn kernels (or more if  your heart desires), 2 cups of grated cheese and 4 ounces of cream cheese. Stir continuously so as not to burn. You may want to turn down the heat a bit as it all begins to be melted in.

Grab a bit of bread and taste it. You are going to need to season it with salt and pepper to taste.  I love pepper so I add about a teaspoon…and a teaspoon of salt too.

 

Now all you need is a roaring fireplace, a good book and you have  the perfect evening!!
