Making Sauce

Gibbie and Ezra made tomato soup, from whole fresh tomatoes, at Oma's (that's their maternal grandmother) house the other day. In these pictures they are working with the great Vitorio Strainer. You can see Ezra plopping the tomatoes in while Gibbie works the crank.
It was a delightful little meal to greet me after my morning off, complete with fresh baked biscuits too! Oma maintains that they actually had a hand in every step of the process.
It was honestly all delicious!

"I'm going to get on my not-puddle-boots. I think that's what they call these boots-- not-puddle-boots. And the last name is cowboy boots. Boots are like people; they have second names." -Gibbie, Oct 8, 2008
