The house smells delicious this morning, the best sort of air freshener there is ... well as long as you like roasted vegetables and garlic, lots and lots of garlic ;-)
I spent the majority of yesterday both making Green Tomato chutney and roasting trays of garlic laced vegetables and then tipping them into my big jam pan and adding other ingredients to make us jars and jars of summer trapped in a bottle ....well that's what it will taste like when we use the sauces on our pasta, pizzas, in soups or as a side to other meals.
As we sat watching a bit of television last night we kept hearing the distinctive 'pop, pop, pop' of the lids as the vacuum was created, each one brought a smile to my face knowing that the sauce was preserved and safe to keep in the cupboard.
The one that didn't 'pop' and the one that was only half full will be used first, well with the smell that is still lingering round the house one or more of them was always destined to be used straight away. Never before have I fancied a big bowl of pasta drenched in tomato sauce for breakfast.
I did take a photo of the jars but it's downstairs trapped in my camera ... so you have got a photo of one of the chickens for no other reason than I like it :-)
Today is a No Spend Day
