  • Old Bay! Good on you, sir or madam!

  • Damn, that’s a lot of tomatoes. I guess you made a couple gallons of Bloody Mary mix and tomato sauce for the rest of the year?

  • What do you do, put them in a blender? Looks delicious. I like mine with lots of Tabasco and Old Bay.

    • Hi! Here’s the recipe:

      Fill up a small sauce pan with chopped up tomatoes. Let simmer 15 minutes until tomatoes get mushy and the skins become soft. Run it through a vegetable mill to separate the skins from the juice. Discard the skins and let the juice cool in the fridge.

      For the drink, mix these things in a blender: 4 cups cooled tomato juice, 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, juice of two lemons, 4 Tbsp olive juice, 2 1/2 Tbsp. horseradish (from the jar is easiest), 2 tsp. Tabasco, 1 1/2 tsp. Old Bay, and a pinch of black pepper.

      Ice in a glass, add vodka, add drink mix above, add olive, lemon slice, celery stalk, etc. and stir well…..makes about 4 bloody marys.

  • What are those purplish/white things in the bottom right corner?

  • Oh my gawwwwd! I am so envious!!! I LOVE bloody marys. What time should I stop by? 😉
