this morning as i am making my spaghetti sauce---i again am reminded of this long ago post---i had asked my dad to come over for dinner tonight and he accepted, only to call me this morning with the request for a "rain-check"----oh sure, it's fine---if he only knew----you know the food issues i have---well when i make my semi homemade sauce, it really rears it's ugly strange head----part of it is i cannot see the expiration dates very well on the jars, i add to my sauce and thus the craziness of spaghetti hell begins......
this part starts the repost
i am right now preparing spaghetti sauce --but the ? is why ( by the way my knee is better-probably wasn't good for it standing up chopping away )
a couple of weeks ago i decided to make spaghetti for my daughter-in-law's b-day dinner- great idea right-- not!! figured it would be easy and didn't have the money to take everyone out to eat- in comes my son and his family of 6 ready to eat. i had used a really BIG pot for the noodles-my husband almost burned himself trying to pour out the water--steam filling the kitchen till you could hardly see the grand-kids as they asked--"can i have garlic bread"--"i don't like spaghetti"--"hey nana you know what i want for Christmas"--and "hey do you have anymore of those blue drinks"--"can i sit at the bar" (counter, they like to call it bar ).
i thought it would be nice to put the spaghetti on a big platter and serve it home style- but first i had to get the noodles out with the tongs that were conveniently in the one drawer that was stuck like nobody's business! yeah it was going great!
so that's why i say to all that- i would not make the stupid mistake of having spaghetti when extra people were coming over
but here i am making my sauce for my dinner with my parents---they say insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting different results----CALL ME CRAZY
