What's For Dinner Tonight

I can say I love to cook but also can say I hate to cook. I have fun cooking but finding the time and energy to be a challenge. We have the smallest kitchen now in this lake side cottage I have ever had in the past. That also makes it a big challenge. There is a tiny counter and only one person should be in the kitchen at a time.

We found prepared Angus Meatballs at the grocery store the other day. This is a nice change to my Spaghetti dinner.

This time I used two jars of prepared Spaghetti Sauce bought on sale, a package of pasta and 1 can of diced tomatoes already spiced. Simmered this and after thawing out the meatballs, we simmered for about 20 minutes more. Not only will we have for dinner tonight but I have divided the remaining into 2 more dinners . These will be frozen for future use and should be enough for at least 2 dinners and maybe even a lunch for another day.

My goal the rest of the year is to make meals that are doubled or tripled and freeze future meals. Come by again to see What's For Dinner Tonight ... Grace
