What's for Dinner?

Well I haven't been to the store to get food in a while and it shows. Well I haven't been home a whole lot these past few weeks. So tonight when I was looking for something to make for dinner, I was stumped. I had half things. You know only half of the things you need to make a whole dinner. Well I usually keep spaghetti in the house at all times since it only takes 10 minutes to make. Well I had no sauce. But I did have tomato sauce. So I made my own spaghetti sauce. Well it's a combo of and Alfredo and a tomato. I am not Italian in anyway. So I have really no idea how to make homemade spaghetti sauce. So here is how I made my sauce.

I used 3 big hand fulls of spaghetti.

1 stick of butter
1 small can of tomato sauce
about 2 tablespoons of garlic powder
about 2 tablespoons of oregano
about a tablespoon of sugar
about 2 palm fulls of grated Parmesan cheese
then salt and pepper

( I never really measure anything, I just eye ball it.)

So I put the stick of butter in the drained spaghetti and let it melt. I added the cheese to the spaghetti. I put the rest of the stuff in the tomato sauce, heated it up and tossed it all together. I did add a little more garlic and oregano to my bowl but it was really friggin good. It looks kind of gross with only a little red. It actually looks pink. I ate as much as I could until I was full.

James hasn't tried it yet, but he will eat anything. When I say anything I mean he ate 3 month old stuffed jalapeno peppers from the fridge. I call him Jethro. You know from the Beverly Hillbillies. He eats a lot and eats everything. I was so used to making small things when I was living at home. Just my Mom, sister and I were at home. Maybe a 2 quart sauce pan full of chili would last us a few days. With James, that was one meal. So I had to learn how to cook big.

So that is my what you have in your cupboard spaghetti sauce.
