Stayed on track again
It's the last week of shopping for this month and I've done it again. I stayed on track with my grocery spend. Just got a small amount left in my shopping purse to get some eggs from the farm later in the week and I need to buy some tofu in Sainsburys tomorrow because Tesco did not have any when I did my shop today.
A simple tea tonight of pasta with tomato sauce and some fried bacon bits tossed through the sauce. I'm having some canned tuna mixed through mine.
MY TOMATO SAUCE
2 Red onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, finley chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 400g tinned tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato puree or red pesto
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano
Freshly ground black pepper
Heat olive oil in a large pan . Add onion and garlic, saute for a few minutes.
Add the balsamic vinegar and cook for 1 minute.
Add the tinned tomatoes, tomato puree or pesto, sugar, salt, oregano and a grating of black pepper.
Once boiling reduce heat to low and simmer for 50 minutes.
Blend to a smooth sauce.
