Is it nap time yet?

Okay, it definitely hit me more today. It was busy, busy, busy with sick kids at work today, plus all the training. I hit the grocery store after work, but all I really wanted to do was go home! I'm a whimp! But I'll toughen up over time......

Tonight we had spaghetti and meatballs, using the my recipe for marinara. I barely had the energy to make the meatballs, but they really are not hard at all. It was good that DH was traveling and wasn't going to be home until 7 the earliest - it took some of the pressure off of getting dinner ready - I usually aim for 6:30 at the very latest. It's funny how the little things (tonight's little thing was grating some fresh Parmesan) can add so much time to dinner preparation. By the time dinner was done, I was so ready to sit and eat that snapping a picture first didn't even occur to me. However, I did manage to get a few meatballs with sauce together for a quick shot. I continue to be amazed by the cooking blogs that take such great photos - mine are definitely an after-thought. Not to mention I just can't get the focus thing down either...

I am hoping to get some time to bake and putter in the kitchen on Friday and over the weekend. I'm really feeling the need to bake something! Or maybe I'm just feeling the need to eat something baked......hmmmm.......

Tonight's recipes:


  1. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm meatballs!
    Those look great, I'm curious to compare your recipe with my family's.

  2. Yummmm!! Thanks for sharing, I love to cook and I love to eat!!!

    Dinner is a big job, very underrated!! Its the famous question in my house. I am quite lucky though, my wife cooks quite often and its very yummy, I try to repay her on the weekends, but I am not as good.


  3. Hi mona and tickneen. I didn't even have enough of the ingredients called for and they still came out quite good. I like recipes that are forgiving.
