    The wife made chorizo in a cream cheese sauce with corn and sweet potatoes (grown locally). For the teen, she made steak in a basalmic vinegar reduction and sweet potatoes. It was one of those nights where she threw things together without a recipe and hit the ball out of the park.

    What did you have?

    I do the cooking, as the misses is too busy.

    Last night I made a great pork tenderloin with onions and apples, along with sauteed spinach and a nice salad. Got kudos for the pork from Mom, wife, and even the picky daughter.

    Tonight my special spaghetti sauce with pork along with egg plant and salad.

    All things organic and absolutely no wheat or GMO.

    I'd liked to hear more about that "special spaghetti sauce" (y)

    You can add more tomato sauce if you like it more saucy.

    Ingredients:

    2- Cloves chopped garlic

    1-chopped onion

    1-large carrot diced

    1-stick salary diced

    2-3 leaves basil diced

    1-bay leaf

    1-28 oz. tomato sauce – Tuttorosso Sauce


    In sauce pot saute garlic and onion until translucent – low to medium heat – use olive oil

    Add carrots and salary. Cook until all are soft

    Add basil and tomato sauce. Salt and pepper to taste.

    Add red pepper flakes if you like.


    Cover and cook on low for 45-60 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and use hand mixer to make sure sauce has the texture you want.
