Dangerous tomato




It's been a quiet old week here in Mog Towers. I have been slumped over a pair of circular needles trying to finish off Archie's jumper before the summer arrives and renders it obsolete. Heavy work, and I don't just mean the short rows. A whole man sized pile of yarn is hard on the wrists. It fits and is liked which makes up for the pain and swearing that accompanied the knitting of it.

My other main achievement this week was making enough lasagne of the veggie variety to feed about twenty people. I started off making a big pot of puy lentil and tomato sauce only to be attacked by a tube of tomato puree. Dangerous things tomatoes.

I'm really glad you explained that first picture. It's attractive, but vaguely disturbing, when you don't know what the red stuff is.

And, oh, Sweet Peas! I love them so much and have never successfully grown them.

i can't decide which i like more - the sand garden quality of the lentils or the tomato slugs. are they related to banana slugs by any chance?

you take the most insightful and moving photos.

Gee, at first I thought the last photo was pebbles with a random leaf partially buried in it! Then I saw your mention of lentils and the leaf does resemble a bay leaf. Duh...

You do take such wonderful photos! Always worth a second, third and fourth look.

Your photo tryptichs are a marvel.

Hey, Emma wants to see a car picture! It's been ages!

Ah, I bet the tomatoes that went into that paste were of the Killer Tomato variety. If you want to see parts of old San Diego, just get the movie, "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" to view.

Always a pleasure to see your photo journaling. hehe
