Or in my case, my son’s dogs eats chocolate.

A man in poison control told me to feed  the dog a tablespoon and a half of hydrogen peroxide. Good advice. It worked. sometimes shaggy or Hootie get into things they are not supposed to get into.

Making tomato sauce with my Victorio mill

When my counter is covered with tomatoes form my garden, I make tomato sauce. I put all the tomatoes I picked, abut 15 pounds today,  in my large stainless steel pot and cooked them for a long time until they were halved in volume.

I let them cool and put them through my mill which takes about the same time to set up as to process the tomatoes. I always put the skins though twice to get all pulp out.

I love this machine.
