A misty day

There has been no improvement in the weather here in the Bogs, I’m sorry to say.  Still warm, humid, misty, and very gray.  We had a brief rain shower this morning.  I don’t like to complain too much about it because we need the rain.  We are, I think, about three inches behind where we should be in rainfall this year.

I’m thinking tonight will be a good night for comfort food.  I made three quarts of stewed tomatoes yesterday, following pretty much my mother’s way of making them — just tomatoes, onions, and peppers.  No sugar.  A little salt.  I don’t like my stewed tomatoes too sweet.  That must be Mom’s fault as her stewed tomatoes were never too sweet either.  The tomatoes (and the peppers I used) have a natural sweetness to them that’s just enough.

Macaroni and cheese is a great dish to have with stewed tomatoes, mixing the saltiness of the cheese with the natural sweetness of the tomatoes.  Yum.  I found a CookingLight mac ‘n cheese recipe that sounds good, using four cheeses.  I should stop messing around online and go do something about putting it all together, this comfort meal.  It’s not going to make itself, is it?
