“It’s all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and friends and family.” – Phillip Green
This past weekend Tim and I came to the Seattle area to spend time with our family and friends for the holiday weekend. We leave tomorrow for Victoria, British Columbia to enjoy a much needed bit of rest and relaxation.
Rarely do I get the timing right for our little excursions because there is always something to be done in the garden.This vacation was no exception. The day we left I picked 30 pounds of tomatoes and had no time to do anything with them.This was quite the dilemma for me as I absolutely do not like to waste anything. I knew by the time we returned home the tomatoes would surely be spoiled.
I fret and stewed for a while (no pun intended) and eventually came up with a plan. Since we were driving, I could box up the tomatoes, add some peppers, garlic, basil, and rosemary and bring them along with me.
Our friends and family would be happy to take some of those tomatoes off our hands and I would have all the fixings for my Famous Tomato and Basil Pizza Pie.
It was a win-win situation for everybody.
