Tightwad Tuesday

We haven't been canning tomatoes like crazy lately in order to save money per se, but rather because we have SO many tomatoes that it's ridiculous. We'd never be able to eat them all fresh. But, the saving money part is not a bad side effect. 

Here's a few glamour shots of just some of the tomatoes we canned this weekend, pre-canning of course:

Yes, I styled this photo by adding a few mason jars and a watering can. Don't judge me.

Here's a shot of the canning setup:

And the finished product:

Oh, we also made homemade salsa and pasta sauce. Eat your heart out Martha Stewart.


  1. Ya'll are so country! I love it!

  2. "LEE" made the pasta sauce and salsa.

  3. Megan! I love this! You'll have to tell me how you made these - a recipe found online? Hope you are doing well!

  4. Hey Mary! We just Googled "canning tomatoes" to learn how to do it right. For the pasta sauce, Lee just used the stewed tomatoes and a bunch of different spices. Then this is the salsa recipe he uses: http://greensboring.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=5851

    Hope you're doing well!
