Good Morning.

We have been spared to another new day and another one of those clean sheets that I think and talk so much about. It is a serious matter and I do need to be careful how I spend my time today.

We had a very good day yesterday, lots of showers durning the day which kept me inside, and I do like a few days like that it helps me get some inside work up to date and slip in a little nap.

My tomatoes are doing very good they are ripening so fast, and I am haveing the pleasure of sharing a few of them with my friends.

Smoked Tomato Barbecue Sauce
Tags: ,

By David Harbilas
In my last post I noted how smoking tomatoes lends a barbecue flavor, so why not enhance a regular barbecue sauce with smoked tomatoes?
This is essentially a regular, coffee-based barbecue sauce with the addition of pureed smoked tomatoes.
Some of the sweeteners, like molasses, have been omitted, as the tomatoes will take care of that. But slow simmering always improves a barbecue sauce
Makes about ½ gallon
6 cups tomato ketchup
1 cup strong brewed coffee
1 onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon dried ginger
1 tablespoon ground coriander
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard Read the rest of this entry »

"I don't eat very much, just a lot of tomatoes." That made me laugh out loud and put a big smile on my face. Hope you find things to smile about today, too, Dad, and enjoy another wonderful day of life (and homegrown tomatoes!)

Sara said...

Boy, maybe eating lots of tomatoes is the key to a good, long life?

I'm a bit late arriving here myself. Guess we're all getting a late start this morning. Oreo is dropping his ball at my feet as I type this. He knows the temperature has cooled, much better playing weather.

Have a great day!

Good Morning DAD...

Your mood even sounds good this morning and so does your thought for the day. Too bad your weather is not. Just as I wish I could be there eating one of your tomato sandwiches, I wish I could bring my weather along. Here we have a very nice breeze blowing through the open windows. A good morning for sipping a cup or two of sumatra coffee while sitting outdoors under a tree. If I had any tomatoes to pick, I'd be out there picking.

I may have to put on another pot of coffee just so I can make that BBQ sauce with coffee. I plan to put some pork into the crock pot and make a batch of pulled pork. Then, top it with some of the smokey flavored BBQ sauce you posted.

Keep smiling and enjoying those tomato sandwiches. ...Sara's Mom

Dear Dad, Ms. Mary, and sweet Prince!:

Add me to the list of BBQ Sauce Recipe fans, Dad -- I think I'd use fresh tomatoes as I don't care for ketchup, but other than that, the recipe sounds amazing! Hoping you, Ms. Mary, and the sweet, handsome little Prince are enjoying your afternoon. Your formula for a good life sounds like a winner ('eat mostly tomatoes')! Love to you all from Jamaka and fams
