like the time Jakki and I were leaving work and saw the Capitol Police performing CPR on a guy in the snow. Being the uncaring people we are, we both immediately noticed (to ourselves) his ample, naked belly being distended even MORE with the CPR. Then of course we went back to HUMAN mode and began to feel bad for the poor guy, laying on the snowy parking lot, having to be so PUBLICLY worked on..........we then began to compare notes about our thoughts and realized that indeed we ARE TWINS SEPARATED AT BIRTH AND BY 5 YEARS and think JUST alike. We heard later that he was fine, which is a nice thing to know.
And that I think my dogs could benefit from some Victoria whoever that is the host of "it's me or the dog' on animal planet. They aren't very well behaved creatures, and I dote on them far more than apparently I should, and that may be the reason that Buster treats me so badly....because he can, and I don't discipline him. Maybe she can work her miracles on my teenage boys, too!!!
And that my in-laws came for dinner last night and brought ASTI-SPUMANTE.......which I thought a little odd, but oh well....then they wanted it with dinner because it was a "special" day...to which I asked brightly"OHHHHHH, what's special"??? It was their anniversary. Open mouth, and insert foot (and fist). Doh.........awkward moment ensued.
Oh...you want my spaghetti sauce recipe? It's soooo very easy.....and better than a bottle........
1 small or 1/2 large yellow onion diced
2 cloves garlic minced
1T dried basil
1T dried parsley flakes
1t garlic powder
1 1/2 t salt
1 1/2 t pepper
1/2-3/4 dry red wine
1 large (28 oz???)can of petite diced tomatoes
2 small (14 oz, not the really small ones) cans tomato sauce
1-2 T sugar
1T hot sauce (I prefer Frank's brand)
Saute the onion in a small amount of olive oil until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another few minutes (if you like green pepper in your sauce, dice a small one and cook it with your onion). Add the dry spices, and stir around and cook with the onions. Be careful if you are using non stick to not scratch your pan with the dry spices.
Add the wine and let cook for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes, and hot sauce...simmer while pasta of choice is cooking and you now have a fresh tasting, EASY cook sauce.
Add meat if you want, add other veggies if you want add cheese if you want........the sauce is basic and to me really good.
On another note, I don't measure, so the measurements are guesses. TASTE YOUR SAUCE and if you want more of something, add it. If you hate basil, then use a scant teaspoon of thyme or oregano----if you want more, then add it...
I was super excited yesterday to find comments from people that visited me via Kristin! You made my NIGHT Dingo and Stoogepie (Stoogie). As you all know, I love comments.......I practically PROSTITUTE myself to get comments, and to have folks that I see elsewhere READING my little blog and actually COMMENTING........wow......I was moved!!!!
Oh, and for the ones that are regulars, but don't comment.....please do...introduce yourself....I see your cities on my site meter, but I don't know who you are..........Oh, except for you Ph.D, and cute cousins. I SEE YOU looking, but never HEAR from you..........hint hint. Y'all get on that, now, ya hear?
For you REGULAR regulars, I will get a blog roll soon. I promise. I am not talking about my lack of computer on this post, so as soon as I CAN, I'll have Mr. Perfectly get one going for me.
Toodles for now..........
