Tomatoes!!

I know the last garden update was a bit of a downer.  While it has been a tough year for our garden, not all is lost!  We have not given up.  Our tomatoes are doing amazingly well and I'm on Vat #3 of pizza sauce.  It's the best year yet for our tomatoes!

We are expecting guests in town later this week, so I whipped up some whole wheat pizza dough this morning to go along with it so we can all make our own, fresh pizzas later this week. When I was at Whole Foods last week I noticed 1ball of pizza dough cost $2.99 each.  I made 8 of them just over a buck.  That's a savings of over $22 bucks!!!

That's a great use for tomatoes! So do you freeze it then, or can? I made lots of veggie spaghetti sauce last year and froze it, but if I get as many tomatoes as I think I'm going to, I might be making straight up tomato sauce too and canning it to save space in the freezer. Our tomatoes are just starting to ripen, so it will be a while yet before I have to get serious about processing everything.
