is nice to know that we can just enjoy the little things in life. So here it is. On Friday's we have homemade pizza. At first, I enjoyed this so much because it was one night that I didn't have to come up with an idea for supper. Now I get a kick out of watching the kids look forward to it. They get to have a sprite and eat picnic style on a blanket in the living room floor. We also let 2 & 3 sleep together. I guess that kinda reveals part of why they like it so much. They are hopped up on sugar and have a mini slumber party.
Well, yesterday we were out of pizza sauce and I did not want to go to town to get any more. I knew I couldn't cancel pizza night over this and then I had a brain storm. Homemade Sauce. We have tomatoes coming out of our ears. So maybe, just maybe if this works out I can "can" my own. Perfect, kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Use tomatoes and have extra sauce stored up. I went straight to the computer and pulled up pinterest( I want to suport the sites that support me. HA HA HA.) Another recommendation for my blog was for me to post recipies. Small problem there, I don't use them often. I normally look up several different recipies and then combine them in my head. This is what I did tonight.
I will drop a few photos of the sauce process later when I actually process some jars and I will include a complete recipie. But for this post, just pizza pics.
I cover the dough with olive oil and drape a towel over the bowel and then place it on the back eye of the stove because it has a vent to the oven and it helps the dough rise while the oven preheats.
Last special trick. IRON SKILLET. Grease it with shoretening and put it in the oven while it preheats. This will make the dough nice and crispy. Yummy!
p.s. the sauce was pretty good. Gonna try to can some soon.
