On A Tuesday

Yep, another Tuesday has come and gone.  I made a decent meal this evening for supper to transport to Stephen's job.  He really liked it, even though he said I could have added some corn to the pasta.  Lol...  I decided to wait on the meatballs for Thursday night.

I started off with the sauce.  I use the Delallo sauce as the base and then add lots of stuff to it.  In today's sauce I added ground sirloin, mushrooms, squash, zucchini, onion and garlic.  Looks pretty tasty, huh?

I let that simmer for a few hours. The pasta we use is half egg noodles and half whole wheat rotini.  It's a really good combination and it's super satisfying.  You do need to cook the egg noodles a touch longer than the whole wheat pasta.  Makes sense because the whole wheat pasta doesn't have a lot of "stuff" added to it.   See the steam in the picture?  :-)

Here is the finished product in a to-go container. I added a sprinkle of Parmesan reggiano cheese to it.  Nothing fancy when it comes to containers.  It's what's inside that counts!

We also had one of my awesome salads.  I love making salads.  In tonight's salad we had tender organic mixed greens with baby spinach, sliced sweet mini peppers, grape tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, plums and avocado.  We always get as much of our fresh fruits and vegetables organically grown.  It really does taste better and I don't mind paying extra because we don't waste it.  I make sure of it, hence the cauliflower in the salad this evening!

Now I am just waiting for Stephen to get home.  He will want a snack (probably a small bowl of leftovers) and a few of his chocolate peanut clusters from the NNH.

Nothing fancy on a Tuesday.  Hope you all had a great one!  We've got some weather coming in tomorrow so I am looking forward to spending the time lounging around.

That sauce does look good. I can almost smell it. : )
