Clean-Out-the-Freezer-Challenge Day 4

This is going to be a short and simple post, just like our dinner.

Today’s freezer item was stewed tomatoes. Every year, I grow all kinds of tomatoes. This summer we had sungolds, early girls, roma and couple of heirloom varieties. By the end of the summer all the plants were producing so many tomatoes we couldn’t keep up with eating them or giving them away. Rather than let them spoil, I’d stew a batch every 3 or 4 days and freeze them for later use…like tonight.

For dinner I made a basic pasta sauce with anchovies, garlic, and thyme leaves. Tossed with spaghetti and accompanied by a salad, it made for a simple yet satisfying meal.
