What's been cooking?
Tonight, Saturday, we have hunkered down, due to a snow storm that is now changing over to rain. Roads were treacherous this afternoon, so again, the twins are home. DD made it home from work safely, getting stuck on a more gentle hill around here (this is a very hilly town) but a good semaratin pushed her car to help her move up and on her way home. She normally only needs 5 minutes to commute home. This afternoon took here 20.DS is at work, but he left before the snow, and will come home in the rain. Hope that the slushy roads either get plowed/treated or that the rain simply washes the snow away. Dinner on Saturday is normally soup night, but I deemed it leftover night instead. Too much needed to be eaten down. I did a fridge clean out, tossed a few questionable things, luckily not much, and reworked several into meals for one-two, depending upon the food items leftover. Lunch was similar: a bit of marinara with Italian sausage crumbles, the dregs of some beef sloppy joes sauce, a slice of meatloaf that I crumbled, a pint of homemade and canned tomato sauce became "spaghetti sauce" which I served over the contents of a jar of pasta shells lingering in the kitchen cabinet. Topped with Parmesan, this served 3.
