I am quite an aware person, and I know my short comings. One of them is that I love to talk! I really enjoy a good conversation and can chat away for hours. I do know that sometimes I need to listen as well 🙂 This said, I have met someone who talks more than I do, and who does not stop to hear what other people have to contribute to the conversation. Quite sad actually, as there are people out there who have better knowledge on certain topics and this person is missing out on learning more about things they are passionate about. Part of my daily conversations includes the one at night, over the butcher’s block that Dave and I have about dinner. We always talk about what we are cooking and how to cook it. Sometimes he does not listen properly – but most times he does. This red pepper and tomato sauce is a great example of how we arrive at a simple meal.
- 15mls olive oil
- 1 shallot, chopped
- 2 roma tomatoes, chopped
- 1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
- 60mls vegetable stock
- 15mls tomato paste
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté the shallot until soft
- add the tomatoes, pepper, vegetable stock, tomato paste and garlic
- cook until soft and has a nice sauce consistency
