I made my first batch of pasta with raw tomato sauce, with all that delicious stuff from the garden, using this year's tomatoes, garlic, and basil. First thing I make when I get enough tomatoes ripening at once. I make the simplified version first, then start making the other kinds. I made almost a double recipe, and added a can of rinsed cannellini beans, and I cooked about 2/3 c red quinoa in the Instant Pot, to add to the 1 lb of pasta.

Today is National Tequila Day! So I had to make some Mexican food. I was going to grill something, originally, but the humidity was oppressive, so I did not spend much time outside today.

I made some guacamole, as sort of a late breakfast/early lunch, but saved half of it for later.

I made almost the same thing I made a while back - some eggplant and chorizo in chipotle sauce, but I added some cremini, that I had in the fridge. I used garlic, onion, and eggplant from the garden, plus all of the "off" tomatoes I had - the split ones, and any with bad spots to be trimmed out. The eggplant I dried some in the microwave, and the cremini and chorizo I cooked in advance, and mixed everything to heat together after the sauce cooked down. The guacamole I ate the rest of while I was fixing everything else, and the margarita I had as dessert - I don't like drinking those kind of things when using knives! :o

I made cheap dish today, with a lot of ingredients from the garden. It was sort of a gumbo, which I made in the Instant Pot, to use up 1½ qts of okra, that I'm getting mostly from the 12 Little Lucy plants, but have finally started getting them from the 6 Emerald plants. I started with some bacon - the only smoky meat I had in stock - then added some onion, celery, bell and jalapeño peppers, spices and herbs, and garlic, to cook about 10 min., adding some tomato paste towards the end. I then added the puréed tomatoes, okra, and some pearled barley, and cooked in the slow cooker high mode for 2½ hours. It seemed to need more water, so I added more, and cooked on the medium slow cooker mode for 1½ hours, and it was done just right.
