Monday I was laid up sick all day. I had a cold that was incapacitating. As a result, I didn't get a chance to go to the grocery store for our week of meals. Since all we had in the house to eat for dinner was a stale piece of left over gingerbread (still delicious, BTW) and one egg, I decided to order pizza.
It was delicious. I love me some cheap peperoni and mushroom pizza.
Last night I worked late, so our after our trip to the grocery store I decided that all I had the energy to make was spaghetti and meatballs. The ear doctor has been craving spaghetti and meatballs for the last 2 weeks.
I was even so tired that we used store bought tomato sauce (Prego, if anyone is interested).
Sitting down to this less than fancy dinner I looked over at the ear doctor to see him grinning from ear to ear. He could not have been happier with the 15 minute meal.
After taking a stroll down the college-meals memory lane he looked over at me and said, "Katie, thanks so much for the fine Italian food we've had 2 nights in a row!"
I guess I don't have to aim that high to meet his culinary expectations.
Although, in my defense I did make the meatballs from scratch using my mom's famous meatloaf recipe.
