Crock Pot Sunday
My medium sized, oval Crock Pot with my remaining 2 8 count bags of home made, Italian style meatballs from the freezer. I added a fzn tub of what appeared to be plain marinara (may have some ground bits of Italian sausage in it-couldn't tell), a 29 oz can of tomato puree, a 29 oz can of stewed tomatoes
The remaining 1/2 of a large onion from yesterday's soup making was chopped, along with 2 large stalks of celery, the rest of a box of white mushrooms were sliced, about 1 cup's worth of mixed, frozen pepper strips (red, green, orange, yellow)that I later chopped finer before adding also to the awaiting Crock Pot
I also added salt, pepper, a large Bay leaf, a generous amount of mixed Italian herbs
Blended together, it will cook all day, to be served over 1 lb of spaghetti noodles, with freshly grated Parmesan offered on the side. Fzn broccoli cuts (bought at DT, and was not pleased with it, as it is mostly stems, hardly any florettes) that needs to go, and a large green salad with choice of dressing will round out the meal.
What's gracing your Sunday supper table this week?
