and last week I froze 15 qts. of butterbeans
and 12 qts. of pinkeye peas.
I hope to freeze some tomatoes next week. I have canned tomatoes in the past but thought I would try freezing roasted tomatoes this year after reading this blog entry on roasted tomatoes at 4 Reluctant Entertainers recently. It sounds like they would be great for making spaghetti sauce this winter.
I also have enjoyed trying new recipes this summer. Here are a few that are what my hubby says are "keepers":
Vanilla Wafers (Thanks, Rebecca-Ezra Pound Cake)
Tomato Tart (Thanks, King Arthur Flour)
Homemade Pizza Dough (Thanks, Michelle - Brown Eyed Baker)
Baked Shrimp In Tomato Feta Sauce (Thanks, Elise - Simply Recipes)
Summertime Barbecue Chicken (Thanks, Amy - Sing for Your Supper)
Who needs a recipe book when there are so many wonderful recipes on the web?
