Ever since I mentioned it in a different thread I wanna try and recreate the sauce my Nana used to make when she was alive
Authentic Italian American with garlic, onions, bay leaves, fresh basil, oregano and just a hint of crushed red pepper and sugars. Made from tomato paste and puree and flavored with real beef neck bones, hot and sweet Italian sausage, and small meatballs. Served over ziti not spaghetti every Sunday night after saying grace.
Good seafood gumbo. Not the dogshit that chains serve, I'm talking fished out of the Gulf that morning fresh, everything properly seasoned... I'm half tempted to drive to the beach if no one around here makes it.
I'm also craving a tomato sandwich again. I think I'm going to try the windowsill tomatoes again, just because the tomatoes at the grocery store almost always taste terrible.
