Day 7: Foooood!!
 Yay we made it to day 7 without anything crazy happening! That means we have exactly one week left. Eeek! But any who,today lets talk more about food. When my grandpa died some years ago,I promised him that I would keep up his legacy of cooking and baking. I think I've done a pretty good job of keeping that promise, so today, why not tell you all one of my favorite recipes! 
The Not So Secret Sauce
4-5 lbs Roma tomatoes quartered  
1 medium yellow onion, chopped 
2 tbs extra-virgin olive oil 
1/3 cup water (optional) 
6 cloves minced garlic 
1 tsp salt 
1 tbs granulated garlic 
1 tbs raw sugar (to taste)
1 small can tomato purée 
1 cup fresh basil ,whole 
1/2 cup fresh oregano 
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped 
1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
Directions:
 Sautée onions,garlic, granulated garlic,and salt. Add tomatoes and let simmer for 10 minutes. After mix has started to boil, the tomato purée and mix. After you do that, add the fresh herbs ( basil oregano,cilantro) and let sit on top of mixture until herbs appear as a dark green. Let the sauce cook for another 15 minutes continue to mix also add in the sugar. Once the mixture has been thoroughly cooked add the cayenne at the end to add a little kick! Now, you get to enjoy this sauce with pasta or with your cheesy bread recipe! Enjoy.
