While nothing can be easier than tossing something in the crockpot from the freezer, I’m not always that great about making stuff in the crockpot to begin with. Today’s one of those days where I think, “gee, I wish I had something in the freezer,” but alas, that is not meant to be.
Instead, I will make what is perhaps the simplest pasta sauce known to man. I remember that I got it from a website about 7 years ago, but I have no idea where, and typing in the ingredients to Google didn’t help. In any case, this is the recipe, from memory:
a 28 oz can of tomato puree
Put a hunk of butter in the bottom of a pan to melt, like, the length of your thumb. Cut the onion in half and put it cut-side down in the butter. Put the can of tomato puree in. Simmer for 20-30 minutes very low. Add salt and pepper to taste. Put on pasta. Throw out cut raw fruit and veggies and call it a day.
My other favorite “arghIhavenothingtofeedyoupeoplecan’tyouseeI’mquilting” meals all revolve around a roasted chicken, but I kinda forgot to go to the store today.
What? It’s been a day of awesome customer quilting!
The applique is a design by Kim McLean, pieced and appliqued by my customer K. Richards. This is on the frame right now, and I am ditching the interior grid and beginning the outline of the applique on my Q24. Honestly, I didn’t get the whole Kaffe *thing* until this quilt, and now… now I’m in love. This may be an answer to my winter blues!
