Cooking with the Next Generation

I'm such a proud mom.

My daughter has been wanting to learn how to cook something more than just macaroni and cheese from a box. So today she learned how to make tomato sauce (or gravy in the lexicon I grew up with as a NJ Italian princess). Fresh basil, fresh oregano, red pepper, garlic and garden fresh tomatoes all combined with a bit of red wine to make a heavenly scented sauce that I'll reheat tomorrow over a nice, sturdy pasta. It's big and chunky and smells oh, so good.

Oh, and she learned how to uncork a bottle of wine. She's not sure she likes the non-cork corks!
