This sauce is very easy. I originally saw the recipe on Bravetart.com, and loved it.
Roasted Tomato Sauce
3 lbs. Roma tomatoes, slice in half lengthwise
1 red bell pepper, sliced in half lengthwise and seeded
1 white onion, peeled and cut into large chunks
6 cloves garlic, peeled
Salt and pepper
Place all ingredients on a large sheet pan. I cover mine in foil for easier clean-up. Salt and pepper the veggies. Drizzle olive oil over the veggies. Roast at 425 for 1 hour. After it is done cooking, place ingredients in food processor and pulse until you have a nice sauce.
I thought I would celebrate the start of summer by sharing a tablescape from my mom, Mary. Her table includes post-86 Fiesta, vintage Fiesta, and Homer Laughlin Ovenserve. The table cloth is vintage, an estate sale find. The colors are so bright on this cloth, it just makes you happy to look at it. One of the highlights of the table is the vintage Fiesta relish tray in the center of the table. Relish trays are coveted items among collectors.
The small Fiesta heart bowls are available at independent retailers. Love the shape. HLC also makes larger heart bowls available at many retailers, such as Dillards.
The small green ramekin is ovenserve. It is a vintage HLC piece. The outside of the ramekin has an embossed floral design on it that can be seen in later pictures.
The glassware is Fiesta. They can be found with various colors of stripes, but this striping is my favorite.
This item is called the ice lip pitcher. It might be used for iced tea.
Hey all you curious readers,
I am so happy you decided to check out my blog. I live here in the heart of the midwest, Kansas to be exact. I am inspired by creative people and hope to live up to those who have inspired me in my life. I never met a dish I didn't like. I swear! I collect Fiesta, Jadite, Carnival Glass, and Depression Glass. I owe it all to my mom. As I like to tell the story, she was a single, working mother raising two boys. It was easier to eat off of paper plates than have to do dishes after a long day of work and single parenthood. I hate paper plates. I never eat off of paper plates, nowadays. Okay, maybe at a picnic but never at home. It makes me happy to see my Fiesta in the cabinet. So, look for the dishes I collect, the dishes I cook, and the dish I dish just for fun.
