Norma,

now I really need to buy that book that I posted on FB   LOL   ;D

Mike,

I also think my memory must be fading. :-\  I forget what book you mentioned on facebook.  I might have to go look at facebook to recall what you posted.  :-D

Edit:  I think I now recall about what book it was.  Was it the book that said you never would change for any woman?  Is that right? :-\

Norma,
You are never too old to say never....and you are CrAzY like a fox. We all know that....pretty good looker too if I say so myself..... :-[

Bob,

I know no one is never too old to say never, but I have had enough of trying to deal with men in real life.  Right now and probably always I am happy to be alone.  No one tells me I canít eat in bed, have to do work if I donít want to, or bosses me at all.  Maybe someday I might regret that, but donít think I will.  

You also didnít take a good look at me.  :-D

I have seen many women lose their identity to men and try to please them no matter what.  I am not going to be one of those women.   >:D

Mike,

I remember you posting about that book now, and me posting that women really aren't that hard to understand.

Maybe I could help you by telling you what I know about women, so you wouldn't have to purchase that big fat book.  ;)

You could always become a dominatrix, Norma.   8)

See, you already have Bob kissing your thigh-high black leather boots.   ;)

Anyway, here's my latest batch of Redorta sauce with the spices floating on top.  First row from left to right: salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.  Second row: fennel seed, marjoram, basil, and oregano.  On the bottom is a bay leaf...   ;D

Barry,

Lol!  :-D  Women really aren't that complicated.  I have really gotten to know a lot of women (from working in a factory and elsewhere) and to me all women are like pizzas in many ways.  There are many different types.  Just pick the one you like.  If you don't like that type, after trying for awhile, just pick another.  :angel:  :-D

Of course, you don't think women are that complicated... you were born with all those dials and switches, unlike us poor "on/off" males. And, last time I checked, making good pizza was pretty complicated. :-D

The part about just picking another is MIGHTY expensive. :o

All good fun!

Good looking sauce, Pete.

Bob just wants me to try and find links for him sometimes.  :-D He already has a girlfriend to take care of.  

I know it is high time to get this thread back on topic.  Thanks for posting your latest batch of Redorta sauce.  Looks great!  ;D :chef:

Hey you guys, maybe I was born with just the off and on switch.  :-\ I really don't think I think that much differently than men do.  Just ask Steve sometime.  He knows me.

Yes indeed...going to semi-dehydrate a batch this evening. That is, unless the boss wants to go shopping instead.   :'(

Thanks, Norma!!!   :)

Becoming a dominatrix requires a significant investment in new apparel, furnishings, and tools anyway and like Barry said, I like you the way you are also and I just met you not too long ago.   :-*

That Bob guy is okay too, I guess.  LOL   :D

Too many tomatoes?  We just make juice.   ;D

From the abundance of basil in my garden, I made a pretty decent amount of pesto this morning.  I saved some and then used some in a creamy pesto sauce, made with heavy cream and butter.  I also used Craigís method to make Johnsonville sausage to add to the creamy pesto sauce for pasta.  I also used some Sriracha sauce in with what Craigs uses in his method for making a better sausage with Johnsonville sausage.  The creamy pesto sauce was mixed with wheat pasta and also chopped tomatoes from my garden. 

I saved some of the pesto for later and also am saving some of the sausage creamy pesto sauce with sausage to try on a pizza later today.

I thought the fresh creamy pesto sauce with the spiced up Johnsville sausage over pasta had just the right taste for my palate. 

I still have loads of basil left outside, so in the next few weeks I will have to use more to make pesto to freeze.

Thanks Bob!  :)  The stuff for the pasta was easy to make.  You could easily do that yourself.

This is a picture of what the spider webs look like that I go though at nighttime, when walking the dogs.  I hate those darn things.  :-D  I did take some pictures yesterday of what a farm looks like in our area if anyone is interested and wants me to post them.  I have also seen some beautiful butterflies in my backyard lately.  This is one picture of a butterfly.  I also have seen many praying mantis, so hopefully they are helping in my small garden.  My cucumber plant died, I guess from the beetles and I have seen more bugs on the pumpkin blossoms and have sprayed Neem again.  ;D
