07/04/2017 | By

As the last of the summer fruit shows up in the stores, it’s time to grab some inexpensive, over-ripe tomatoes & whip up your own home-made tomato sauce.

Well the new kitchen is up and running, albeit with raw, scarred walls where the old tiles were removed, which is pretty ugly – so I have no update on these images just yet (except for a tiny hint I shared on Instagram last week).
