Anticipate!

That's a saying I tell Gary a lot while driving. I'm sure that I annoy him with my constant freak outs and "anticpate"'s! and my random finger pointing but really, it's a good concept. I'm a terrible driver, but anticipating is very important :)

Like I've mentioned in previous posts, I have been starving. I can barely eat something without still feeling hungry before I'm finished with the last bite. My stomach needs to catch up to my brain because my brain has done a good job (probably too good) telling me I am no longer hungry. Tonight I came home wanting a pizza but also spaghetti. I decided on having pizza and thought I'd make the spaghetti sauce for later juuuuust in case. Anticipate! (also anticipating for lunch....) And now, a full 2.5 hours since finishing my pizza, am I hungry? No. Not at all. Bummer because I really wanted some spaghetti.

Here is the recipe I used just in case you guys don't have it. It's the sauce mom makes that is sooooo good.

Spaghetti Sauce recipe from Brenda
1 lb ground beef
I can 28 oz canned whole tomatoes
1 tsp oregano (or to taste)
1 onion
1 bay leaf
Salt/pepper to taste
1 glove garlic chopped (mom uses more, as did I :))
1 lb spaghetti
1 T chopped parsley (or to taste)

Brown meat & onion, garlic, parsley. Cook for at least 10 minutes stirring constantly. Add tomatoes and rest of seasonings. Simmer until desired thickness. Remove bay leaf OR keep in pot. Then whoever receives it in their serving will be stuck with the dishes. Make sure they don't eat it though. Bad news bears.

Here is the picture. I apologize that you can't smell it because my word it smells goooood!
