Mmmm I just woke up after such a good night's sleep. I slept till after 9am this morning. Amazing for me. And now I have the whole day/weekend ahead of me.
I kicked ass at Seabrook last Friday, but I'm thinking of skipping it this weekend. Instead I figure I'll work on my tan a little (that's hard work!), work out, hit the mall for some retail therapy, and cook some homemade spaghetti sauce with meatballs (while staying on the diet).
Sounds a helluva lot better than working, doesn't it?
The spaghetti sauce and meatballs (my family calls it gravy but I didn't want to confuse you) takes hours to make so I haven't made it in a while. Beauty cannot be rushed. But once it's done then I'll be able to make a quick meal whenever I want.
In the past I've tried to pass off ground turkey meatballs instead of the real deal, but my son was not fooled. And sonny boy loves Mama's meatballs, so he's in for a treat today. According to him, his nana makes the best ones though. And dammit I have to agree! I think it's cuz I use leaner meat than my mom. I don't know what else it could be because I follow her recipe.
Not that she's ever written a recipe down. Hell no! She doesn't measure anything either. It's a pinch of this, a hand full of that, and two fingers of the other. LOL
Which is exactly how I cook too! So it's hard when a friend loves what I've made and wants the recipe. I try to write down what I do, but invariably I always hear that it didn't come out quite the same. I tell them it's because I put love in my recipes.
Anyway, I digress.....
No live action this weekend, but I'll be playing a little online. I've been playing stud8 a little and find it's alot of fun. Unfortunately I know nothing about the game so the plan is to grab a book on it at the bookstore while I'm out.
Is there a decent book on the subject that you can recommend? It would be most appreciated.
Gotta go. The lounge chair in the back yard is calling me and my coffee.
