In-Season Recipe Swap: Tomatoes

This week's in-season theme is tomatoes! Oh, how I love garden-fresh tomatoes! They are so sweet and juicy and make salads and tacos extra appealing to me! :)

Tomatoes and Black Beans over Pasta is one of my favorite quick meals! I cook dried black beans, and with homegrown tomatoes, this is a fun, economical meal. :D

A wonderful way to enjoy fresh tomatoes!


I've never canned before but do you think the tomato soup can be frozen? It looks delicious!

Would you mind sharing any reciepe that your mom has for homemade spaghetti sauce using fresh tomatoes from the garden. And if she does, does she can this up?

I'm looking for a good reciepe to can up spaghtti sauce without using peppers or celery. Something plain like tomatoes, Italian seasoning, onions and garlic

Still enjoying your blog.
