Saturday I decided I needed to get a lot of things done before my trip to see my sister. I needed to cook meals for Jack, do laundry and of course work on packing.
Now mostly it was fine, and I did get things accomplished, but sweet mother of God (!) was it hot!!!
Yes, hot fun in the summertime for sure!
The spaghetti sauce came out very well. One of the best I have made in a long time. It’s loaded with onions, peppers, garlic, carrots, sweet Italian sausage, and hamburger. I also went out and picked fresh basil off my basil plant, chopped it up and added that to the pot. A little oregano here, a little salt and pepper there and a large can of diced Italian tomatoes and a jar of plain spaghetti sauce. Then it simmered and simmered to perfection!
I also roasted eggplant and I will be making eggplant pizza on a cauliflower crust for myself. That will be amazing!
I measured out all the dog food and labeled it for their breakfast and dinner. I have also put out their cans of food to make it easier for Jack.
Sunday I’m making Beef Stroganoff for Jack to have while I am gone. All these meals he will simply need to warm up.
I’ll be looking forward to going off for a few days, just so I can get out of the kitchen!
