Okay, so yesterday I talked about my weird ass issues with my hands and hand washing. I’ve used the homemade sanitizer for a fews days now and I really like it. The consistency is relatively the same as the stuff you would buy, the lavender does smell nice and works with the alcohol, rather than competing with it. I’m assuming my hands are marginally cleaner than they were before – and I can pronounce everything in the bottle. I like that too.
I have it on good authority that Jennifer has the
crack source for good soap.
So. I’ve told you one weird thing about me this week. Here comes another.
Not a fan of vegetables.
I totally understand that they are, like, good for you and stuff. But … ick. There are three in particular that I appreciate how pretty they are, but just don’t care to eat them.
I’ll give you three guesses.
Yeah, I know. Tomato is a fruit. I just realized that – but anyway.
Scout is mystified that I don’t care for those three foods, but I’ll eat salsa and spaghetti sauce.
I used the stuff in the picture above and made 3 small batches of salsa – two are in the freezer and one is being eaten. Yum.
Next crazy thing – I hate knives. That’s not exactly true. I’m excessively scared of getting cut by a knife. (Same goes for heights – heights don’t scare me – falling from them does. Flying doesn’t scare me – blowing up does.)
This knife thing makes cooking a bit of a chore. So I’ve learned to be as efficient as possible with it.
See the criss cross pattern cut into the whole onion?
Then I cut it off into the smaller pieces.
Betty F. Crocker in the house, I swear.
Oh, except she probably wouldn’t decide that using the oil and basil out of the mozzarella that she’d already inhaled was just what the sauce needed. Julia would though, oh Julia would.
I took all of that and threw it in the blender (gradually) with enough water to let it mix together.
Then I went all crazy and made meatballs.
From SCRATCH. Good grief.
Perhaps I need to work on my plating skills next…..
Hey – peppers are a fruit too!
But, that looks yummy.
ack. You are right..
OMG now I NEED spaghetti. Well I didnt have any other plans for dinner so Im thinking this is it. Mine will not be from scratch but it will hopefully satisfy the craving.
That salsa looks GOOD! I love homemade salsa! Although every time I make it I eat it all!
I had no idea you could freeze salsa.
You should get that new book….sneaky meals or something, where you cook with purees hidden in your food so you get your veggies. Not Deceptively Delicious though, according to many of the reviews, she stole the book idea from the woman who did Sneaky Meals.
Hey, thanks for the linkage!
YUM! I’m all hungry now and want to cook – instead of cleaning and unpacking!
And I also don’t care for any of the above mentioned veggies/fruits in their natural, raw state (or alone). But combined? And cooked? That’s what I’m talking about. You are not alone!
*grumbles something shitty about weight watchers and passes out*
Kelli @ Gohn Crazy
Mmmm that looks so good! *drool*
It looks delicious!
Good Lord! You’ve been possessed, haven’t you?
YUM. Freak-eye-eakin’ YUM.
Poor flutter’s comment cracked me up.
Who cares about the plating…what you made looks phenomenal!
Mommy off the Record
I am totally impressed by your onion cutting technique. And homemade meatballs? Wow. Yum!
BTW, thanks for your comment on my last post. I tried to find the post you linked to, but the comment cut it off. If you have time to email me the link, I’d love to read it.
I eat tomatoes like apples. I love them!!!!!
Secret Agent Mama
That looks so incredibly good …
Too bad. Like I have told my four year old so much it’s his new mantra for his younger brother, “You don’t know what you’re missing!”
Bring on the vegetables in all sizes, shapes and flavors–except fresh asparagus for some reason. Blech! Cook the hell out of it and can it and I think it’s delectable but fresh–nasty!
The salsa you made looks luscious! If you will eat them chopped up and mixed together or in sauce, so be it. You are still getting the benefits.
