I love the photo! I’ve never been non-lazy enough to make sauce by peeling the tomatoes, but I bet it’s wonderful that way.

Peeling tomatoes is one of those attention-to-detail things that takes some additional time (but not much) and is worth it. I admit that there are times when I won’t make a recipe b/c of that one little extra step required (whatever it is, for tomatoes or something else), but then I think of my mom and how she’d do things like wash every individual lettuce leaves and dry them all meticulously (before and after the days of salad spinners), no matter how long it took and no matter that it was just us having a mundane lunch. She’d do it all by hand so as not to bruise the leaves or crush the stems, and because she never could abide salads that were wet. So much for the photo now being wordless!
