Nickie’s Down-Home Spaghetti Sauce…Mmm Good..

Visiting friends in Ohio when Nickie shared her wonderful spaghetti recipe with us. Simply done, smells great while it’s cooking and tastes unbelievably good when we can it and use it throughout the year.

40 bush tomatoes (approximately) run thru blender

12 medium onions (run thru blender)

6 green peppers (run thru blender)

Cook down and add

2 TBLSp Basil

2 TBLSp Oregano

2TBLSp Parsley

16 oz vegetable oil

2TBLSp garlic

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup salt

Cook some more…then can it

Makes 8 qts

Folks used to can every year. Some still do and it takes us back to the days of Mom and Grandma and the great smell in the house while preparations are underway.

The future is right ahead of me. At the age of 84, all new projects are interesting.Memories and friends of the past are with me every day. I love to share my thoughts along with comments and opinions (of course) of this day and today's times and challenges. Photography is my hobby. Although I haven't done many photos of people, I've found there are photo challenges in every direction. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in 1953, college was of no interest to me. My Dad used to say, "some folks get a college education and may still not have enough sense to come in out of the rain." That's always been enough for me because I do, have that much sense, about the rain. I have learned one important fact about life. Old isn't as old as I always thought it was.
