And because I think about food 23 out of 24 hours of every day, here is some food porn for your viewing pleasure!

I made homemade marinara sauce with the last of last season's tomatoes that I had in the freezer. I basically just cooked the tomatoes down for several hours (probably about 8), added a couple of generous handfuls of fresh basil, 3-4 cloves of minced garlic, salt, sugar, and a little white wine, and continued to cook for anther couple of hours. I bet when it was all done, it had reduced almost by half. YUM.

I added some of Steve's family's homemade Italian sausage to the sauce, then I cooked up some cheese tortellini.

To make it extra special, I drizzled the 18 year aged balsamic vinegar that Stephanie bought me for my birthday, and then loaded the bowls with the pasta and sauce.


It was so good. I could eat it every week for the rest of my life. Maybe I will.
