A love affair with the tomato

The Hikers have been avoiding the bush over the last month - mostly cycling and swimming to avoid the heat and danger (fire, snakes) of the South Australian summer.
But we have been missing the blog and we would like to tell you about a very special event that happened last Saturday. This was the day that the Hikers learnt the secret of making tomato sauces in their backyard. The man with the secrets (add equipment) was Rito. Together we cooked up the yummiest and freshest tasting pasta and tomato sauces ever. It was a big day with all of us putting in a 10 hour shift - but we certainly slept well on Saturday night with our bellies full of pasta and wine.
I hope you enjoy the pictorial record of the event and the cooking tips. We are all very grateful to Rito for his amazing contribution to our current and future culinary delights.

How long has it been since I last wrote to you. Ages it seems. I really think this could be a great blog entry - food - food - food - my favourite subject!
Boy was it great to make your own sauce - the smell of the onions, butter, olive oil was heavenly! But lunch was greater; Pasta, Infinite mountains of pasta .... with a river of delicious pasta sauce.
But it was hard work - we were zonked - but you do get something good at the end. We have already started to eat our way through it with some incredibly yummy dinners.
And now, what you have all been missing - a joke and a riddle ...
First, have you heard the one about the garbage can? Don't worry about it, it is a load of rubbish!
And second, a riddle
Q: I have spears in my back and and nails in my ribs, feet I do lack. What am I?
A: A sailing ship
Did you get it?
See you soon!
