Roasted Tomatoes

Tomato Season will be here, soon! Oh, how I miss it. That means salsa, marinara and many other way you can eat tomatoes. I love just eating tomatoes. I will just eat homegrown tomatoes until the sores in mouth appear and that still won't stop me :)  Here is one way to enjoy tomatoes that is rich and favorable.

Fresh Basil
Homegrown Tomato
Feta Cheese Crumbles

I do place the tomatoes on foil because it can be a hard pan to clean.

Don't they look just AWESOME!!

Homemade soft scrub

When, I clean I try to go as chemical free as I can. I have a great substitution for the soft scrub. I have a tiled shower, so I have to use something that well, if I am going to to get it clean. Vinegar and water is an excellent way to clean floors and surfaces. 2/3 Vinegar mixed with 1/3 dish soap is awesome, too. It works just an all-purpose cleaner. ( Borax is awesome in the laundry room; I have been testing out different recipes; I will post a recipe for homemade laundry detergent, later.  The best thing about all of it is the cost is less for the less chemicals and working just as well.

The mixture is easy!
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup of dish soap
Optional: 1/3 cup bleach
