The Ever-Morphing Pot

This is the story of the tomato sauce that turned into soup. Starting with tomatoes, peppers, and onions from the farm (and some seasonings and mushrooms that were not), Gerry set out to make another batch of sauce.

He cooked the 'maters.

Peeled them. (I helped by running them under cold water first.

Cooked up the garlic, onions, peppers, and herbs in some olive oil. See those smushed tomatoes in the background? I did that.

And then he dumped the tomatoes in and put the lid on the pot to let it all simmer. Oh, and mushrooms. And a can of tomato paste. But don't ask me when they went in--I don't cook.

But then he started thinking. We're sort of under the gun this week, because we just had last week's pick up on Friday, and the next one is Tuesday. Hmm. How about throwing some squash in there and turning it into soup? So he threw in "the round one and the flower-looking one." (Patty pan, I think he means.)

And so it became soup!
