Commenting on Dandelions taking over the world

tcr! tcr! · 6 days ago

Just to put this out there for those inquiring publicly and privately: I wouldn’t actually spray her whole yard with weed killer. If you’re new here, it’s funny. But I do think about it and curse under my breath when she’s got a yard full of bloom that’s blowing over into my yard. I’m not sure if it’s obvious by my picture but her dandelions are of epidemic proportion. There isn’t grass over there, only dandelions and other weeds.

In the Spring they’ll take over my half my yard in a matter of days. I only resorted to spraying after 6+ years of trying to keep up with digging them by hand, etc. If ya’ll think I can dump corn meal on them and be done, I’ll gladly pay you to tend to my yard with natural remedies so long as they actually work against the sheer volume of dandelions I’m talking about. And it doesn’t cost me a small fortune for the hours you’d be putting in.

So yeah, I have no problem with occasionally spraying and spot-checking the dandelions because I’m not dealing with a simple foe here. And I have loads of other flowers (cone, milkweed, pansies, periwinkle, magnolia, daffodils, etc.) to feed the bees and butterflies.

Who is Greg you might ask. That is a very good question.

Greg is Norwegian. A simple man with locks of gold and a mustache to match. Muscles toned and tanned to a reddish brown. The women adore him and his fanny pack of Caesar spiced croutons. His wit is quick and his axe is sharp yet his heart is as pure as the Newfoundland snow.

He often can be seen wearing only but knee-high leather boots, the best Corinthian leather generally saved for the gods. His ranch dressing is spicy but palatable, chivey yet smooth.

If you listen closely you might just hear him sing a little ditty about Jack and Diane on a warm summer night. There’ll be a twinkle in his eye and a dab of parmesan on his lip.

That sounds delicious. It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out she wasn’t referring to the guy from the Trailer Park Boys though.

You should have a look around the https://smittenkitchen.com archives actually, she makes a lot of vegetarian recipes and the ones I’ve tried have been quite good. ☺️

Yep yep. We make this one a lot: https://smittenkitchen.com/2010/01/tomato-sauce-with-butter-and-onions/

It’s worth looking for the San Marzano tomatoes, they have more flavour, which is important with so few ingredients. The only thing I change about this recipe is to break up the tomatoes with an immersion blender before cooking (leave some chunks) instead of mashing them up during cooking, but that’s totally optional. Don’t get the ones that are already crushed/pureed, it doesn’t turn out right with those.

The other one we really like is this bolognese, but you would have to make a couple of substitutions: https://www.framedcooks.com/2011/11/weeknight-bolognese.html

I’m certain soy burger would work just fine. It calls for wine, which brings out the flavour of the tomatoes, but I have successfully substituted water and a dash of wine vinegar in a pinch. I’ve also heard grape juice and a dash of vinegar works.

Is there an online recipe for your tomato sauce? Or is it your own formula?

People don’t like red sauce? Ever since I tried making my own tomato sauce, I can’t go back to the jarred stuff, but still I’m surprised at that response.

Yes, I believe so!

Also, I’m fairly surprised at how many people have voiced their disdain for red sauce. πŸ€”

Actually, that looks like it would taste better than a jar of red sauce would have. #serendipity?
