Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary.Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard
I raided the freezer to make a pasta sauce this week. I pulled out frozen red peppers, frozen zucchini and a bag of frozen tomatoes.
First I sauteed an onion in olive oil, then added the frozen vegetables.
I cooked down the vegetables until they softened.
I added pepper flakes, salt and pepper and 2 tablespoons of molasses.
For a change from basil I added fresh oregano.
Once everything was cooked down I used the stick blender to puree it all. I left some lumps.
