what you focus on you create more of
I am trying to be intentional about my thoughts, feelings and actions as I hunker down and try to maintain my “social distance.” During this time, I am going to try to post the things that bring me joy. Today, it’s this pasta sauce (my MIL’s recipe!) that I will freeze and enjoy for several more meals. It makes a nice big pot-- perfect for throwing in the freezer for several other meals.
3-4 cans crushed tomatoes (I am loving Muir Glen organic fire-roasted lately)
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 red pepper, diced
1/2 C red cooking wine
1-2 bay leaves
1 1/2 t dried basil
1 t sugar
1/4 t dried rosemary
Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil. Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer 45-60 minutes. Remove bay leaves before serving.
You can add cooked ground beef/turkey/venison or meatballs when you simmer your sauce if desired.
What is bringing you joy today?
