Home Made Tomato Sauce

I made this tomato sauce the other day as we have an excess of tomato’s  in our garden. Pasquale cooks his over a fire. I did not – I used the stove. I did stick to the recipe and cooking time, that was an exception for me as I can’t help adding a bit of this and a bit of that. Staying with his recipe proved to be the only way. It smelt fantastic while cooking and taste is what I have been looking for a long time. I did the separation of skin and pulp with a colander with big holes. I just swished it around till only the skins were left in the colander. 

Any way if you want the real thing you should try it. It is time-consuming I have to admit but the taste was ‘excelento’

The Perfect – MOSQUITO REPELLENT
This is a recipe that was sent to me. It has come from https://www.facebook.com/kelly.bagnasco. This recipe can be easily made at home and a must, to keep handy when sitting outside at BBQ season.

Combine in a 16 oz bottle:
15 drops lavender oil
3-4 Tbsp of vanilla extract
1/4 Cup lemon juice.
Fill bottle with water.
Shake and ready to use.

Fill a presentable spray bottle with this repellent and give it to your host as a gift when invited to a BBQ. In my opinion it is a very acceptable gift.
