I’ve been in fog before but it usually burns off by 10 a.m. but not here. We woke up to fog and it actually lasted all day even till we went to bed last night. Something new for me.
We did the boring chore of washing clothes and than took a little ride down Highway 98 towards Panama City, but not much to see so we came back.
After stopping at Publix I made spaghetti. This was the first time I have used San Marzano tomatoes making the sauce from scratch. All the cooks on TV always use San Marzano tomatoes when they make Italian foods, and many insist it’s the only brand to use. I remember paying $5.69 for this 28 oz. can. Now that is expensive, but I thought I’d give it one try.
Following instructions for making a simple sauce I’ve seen on TV, I sautéed onions and garlic, added some Italian seasoning, smushed the tomatoes with my hand and simmered it with links of browned Italian sausages. The resulting sauce was tasty but I don’t think I’d pay that extra money again for San Marzano canned tomatoes. We had Charles over for dinner and he liked it.
I’ll stick with Hunts tomatoes if I make spaghetti from scratch again …. but probably will stick with Prego or Giada Spaghetti Sauce from Target. I really like Giada de Laurentes’s sauce.
Rain started about midnight and it rained all night and is raining right now and suppose to continue to rain till at least noon. Oh, my, there goes rolling thunder….oops, there goes Poncho to hide under the covers of the bed. Guess we’ll just hibernate inside today.
Remember, you are loved.
