Crock Pot Wednesday: spaghetti and meatballs
The last of my homemade, frozen meatballs are simmering away in a quick to assemble, spaghetti sauce of 1 29 oz can tomato sauce, 1 15 oz can no salt stewed tomatoes, 2 branches of celery that I chopped, the rest of an open jar of mushrooms, dried onion, a bay leaf, Italian spices, black pepper, a squeeze from the tube of garlic paste.
The rest of a bag of GF pasta will be cooked for DD (providing a l/o dinner on Thurs which is now "dinner with Dad night" due to DS's schedule, and the rest of a box of spaghetti for DS and I-there may not be any leftover pasta.
The rest of a bag of fzn green beans will be buttered and seasoned. The rest of some leftover salad will be added to, and served with a choice of dressings, including the fresh batch of Penzey's peppercorn dressing that I made this morning, using the rest of the lingering sour cream from the holidays (not quite enough as called for so I added some extra mayo).
The pantry/freezer challenge continues.
Weird that we've had 4 Crock pot dinners in a row, just a coincidence. I have a long appointment this afternoon with a new rhumatologist, so I needed to get a jump on dinner
