Gee, I Didn't Need Cheese for This One ...


Jack mackerel with tomato sauce and cheese, baked in toaster oven

My lunch today.
Mom bought a lot of small jack mackerels the other day. They are not small enough to be ideal for deep-frying, but not big enough for sashimi (sliced raw fish). So I used about half of them to test my tomato sauce. Other ingredients were olive oil, garlic, herbs from my garden and cheese.

The dish tasted OK. The tomato sauce was not too sweet and went well with seafood, I thought. But it would have been better without cheese. Definitely. :(

Anyway, soon we will have fresh tomatoes from dad's veggie garden. And around that time, it is also young jack mackerel season. Mmmm... can't wait! :D

It's This Time of the Year AGAIN!


It's great to have a relative who grows tomatoes in a huge greenhouse. Every year we get so many of them! :D

And that means it's time for me to make tomato sauce and jam as I do every year, which means, using the onion, thyme and garlic from our veggie garden and deep seawater salt from a local shop.



Ahhhh... Now I'm ready for a huge seafood pizza!! :D
