Potato soup(my version) and a hamburger.
It was cold and rainy all day, so I needed the soup!

RE: What's for dinner, honey?
I gotta start making dinner in a few (it's almost 11AM! Eeeek!) Tonight it's pasta with meat sauce (sweet sausage, hamburg, pork, chicken and some strip steak). The sauce has to cook for at least 3 hours before adding the meat... If I hop to it now, I might have it on the table for 5!

How do you prepare the sauce? Is it in the oven? Stovetop? Crockpot?

I keep meaning to try a spaghetti meat sauce in the Crockpot. I'm worried the meat would be really dry though in the end.

RE: What's for dinner, honey?
I do it on the stovetop...
I saute 1/2 minced onion and 1 minced garlic clove in REGULAR olive oil (evoo is waaaay too strong) and 'toast' the oregano, basil & parsley. Then add 56 oz. crushed tomatoes and 28 oz. water and two bay leaves. Bring to almost boiling, then reduce heat to super-low, crack cover and let simmer for 2-3 hours. Around the 2-2 1/2 hr. mark, brown 1lb hamburg and add to the pot. add the other meats and let simmer for 2 1/2 - 3 hours if meat is frozen, 1 1/2 or so if thawed (any longer and it all tastes like sawdust) Def. a project for a 'lazy' Sunday...

Last night I made fettucine mixed with minced garlic browned in Olive oil, with basil and parsley, and topped with mozzarella cheese (Parmesan is better, however we were out so mozz it was!).

RE: What's for dinner, honey?
I made a huge pot of really good pasta sauce and froze it into single-serving portions, so tonight it's bowtie pasta with that sauce.

Not too exciting, alas, but hey, it's good stuff!

tonight, I'm making Jasmine rice topped with red beans, shredded cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, avacado, cilantro, sour cream and special sauce that we buy at a locally based restaurant franchise. Very delicious!

This sounds delicious! Very similar to one of my favorite dishes. In order: white rice, black beans warmed with petite diced tomatoes with garlic, crumbled corn chips, extra sharp cheddar cheese, diced avocado, sour cream, sriracha sauce. Very drool-worthy.
Last night I made breaded, pan-fried chicken strips, stuffing, steamed broccoli and this squash side dish that I am in love with. (Thaw a small package of winter squash, stick it in a saucepan with a little chicken broth, some salt, butter and brown sugar and heat for about 10 minutes. SO GOOD!)

Janie, if you venture south into Oregon, there are a chain or restaurants scattered about, called "Cafe Yumm!" which is where I buy the sauce I use. They have several other delicious dishes on their menu, but that sauce is addictive!
