Can I just tell you how much I love having Italian Mondays....I am blessed to have a son serve in Italy and introduce us to a new way of cooking. IT'S AWESOME!
Did I say cheap at times to...
Many know that for a very long time that I make up a calendar for the up coming month of the meals we will eat on which night.
Monday - Italian, Tuesday - Mexican, Wednesday - Soup/Salad/crockpot (depending on season), Thursday - casserole or a breakfast type meal, Friday - Bryant/Jacob cook and Saturday is usually a very easy or grill day. Then I have our Sunday meals that get rotated - Ham, Chicken, Roast...unless there is a special occasion (like yesterday).
Sometimes I get in a rut and tell the boys I need 4 meals and they get to go through and see if I have their favorite. This year we are adding a new recipe each month, which is both good and bad.
So tonight, is Spaghetti....not just any Spaghetti...but Spaghetti with homemade Ragu...
P.S. We will add more varieties when the younger boys return from their missions and see what they ate wherever they get to serve.
