There is nothing like tomato sauce made from fresh tomatoes. I buy a lot of heirloom tomatoes in the summer and the ones that get soft get used for tomato sauce. They make a very sweet sauce and it is interesting to see the sauce in different colors! Last year I was at the farmers market and they hadn't sold all their soft tomatoes by the end of the market so they were giving them away. I got two huge bags of heirlooms and most of them were good enough for eating, the soft ones I used for sauce.

Sweet...

I was over at a local Italian market the other day and he was getting ready to make sausage. He cut all the meat off the bone and tossed the bones. A couple minutes later this couple came in looking for pork bones for soup. He offered to call them the next time so they could come in and just pick up the bones. It is nice when they know they are pitching it anyways and offer to just give it out instead of wasting it.

Wish I had know he was tossing the bones in the trash right then, coulda had me some nice pork stock simmering later in the day.

Yeah, and I bet he throws away a lot of beef bones too. A nice beef stock is not to shabby either.

The fish guy at my local farmer's market saves his fish pieces for one lady all the time. He charges her very little. I wish I had asked him first, it would be nice to make a Cioppino out of those leftover fish pieces.

The good news is that the beef bones can't be that expensive.

I absoulutely love mine. I can whip up two loaves of honey-wheat bread in about 10 minutes with the bread hook. The bread is a lot lighter because it takes less flour to get a smooth dough. I use mine at least twice a week, sometimes more. I think it is worth every$.[
