August's calendar page from Gooseberry Patch - I know it's not August, but we're so close. 😮
Just a couple of things to share with you. We're trying to eat less red meat around here, so when our supper on Saturday consisted of grilled hamburgers, I knew that Sunday would have to be a meatless meal. I have a quick and tasty spaghetti sauce for you that you can have ready and on the table in a little over half an hour. Here it is:
QUICK AND EASY SPAGHETTI SAUCE
In a large saucepan, heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil and saute' 1/2 of a small chopped onion, 2 tsp. minced garlic, and a handful of sliced mushrooms until softened and a bit of browning on them. Stir in 1, 28-oz. can of diced tomatoes, 4 tsp. dried basil, 4 tsp. dried oregano, and 1 tsp. white sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve over a healthy pasta and have a salad off to the side. Very good. Enjoy!!!!
This is a liquid-y sauce, so I think some toasted French bread would be great to sop up the yummy sauce. 😋
The next thing that I WAS going to share with you (but can't because all of a sudden my computer decided to quit uploading photos!) was how much I got out of the Crockpot chicken we had for Friday evening's supper.
*First - we had the meat from that chicken with a salad and fruit on Friday.
*Second - today I took all the meat off the bones, threw the bones into the crockpot (again) along with celery, onion, carrots, and garlic and had it simmer all afternoon for homemade chicken broth.
*Lastly - tonight for supper I made a chicken pot pie and it makes a lot so we will have leftovers tomorrow!
All this to say that if you plan carefully, one item can give you a lot of meals. 😊 That's definitely a savings. (sorry about the no photos) 😐 I took some pictures of beautiful clouds we had today too - I'm sad that I can't show you - they were very pretty.
Thank you for the short visit - I do appreciate it when you drop by. God bless.
