I woke to a nice cool morning today. The temp thingie on my computer says it is now 57 degrees here in Richmond, VA. It is supposed to get into the upper 70's today.
I've been sitting here trying to think of something to make for dinner and I keep thinking about spaghetti, so I think I'll cook some hamburger and throw it and the spaghetti sauce into the crockpot. I aways like to throw in a bay leaf or two into my sauce while it is cooking. My Mama used to do it like that and her sauce was so good. Years ago she used to make it from scratch and we didn't have spaghetti often when I was growing up, it was a treat to have it and she mainly made it in the winter. As she got older she started using the jarred sauces. I make spaghetti all the time. I cheat and use the jarred sauce. Sometimes I cook it in the crockpot and sometimes I just cook it in the microwave, sometimes I don't add hamburger to it, but no matter what method I use I always add the bay leaves. I'll make some biscuits like Red Lobster serves to go with the spaghetti and a toss salad if I still have any lettuce left.

Here is how I make my Red Lobster biscuits:
I use Bisquick, mixed with a little milk, then I grate some cheddar cheese and throw it into the dough, then I add some garlic and parsley and mix well with a fork. Spoon onto a cookie sheet and bake. I don't measure anything and I don't really time it, I just keep checking until they are done.
I have laundry to do today and I have started on one load so far, I have about 3 more to do, I also have a few baskets of towels to fold. I got behind in my laundry because of the migraines. My boys do their own laundry so I just have mine and Keith's, plus our towels and the kitchen towels and wash clothes. My laundry life got a lot easier when my son's started doing their own laundry. ;)

I need to learn how to make sauce I will work on that this winter. I love pasta. Sounds like we are both behind on chores. I like folding towels, but I dont like doing laundry. I just put it all in together I dont even sort the clothes. Each week I vow to sort the clothes the next week but never do.
