Dutch Oven Inside; Igloo Outside
I received a cast iron Dutch oven for Christmas (does anyone else think of something gross when they hear dutch oven?). I finally broke it out and made some spaghetti sauce. Start with a pound of ground turkey.
Add some fennel seed (to make it taste like sausage), minced onions, and red pepper flakes while it’s cooking. Then stir in the left over jars of spaghetti sauce hanging around the fridge.
Let simmer! VOILA!!
I put mine over some penne and added peas (since I haven’t had a green veggie in a few days).
I may have added too much red pepper flakes, because it was VERY spicy. I went through two glasses of water! Best part of making spaghetti? LEFTOVERS!! I have lunch for today and tomorrow. How do you make spaghetti? Does it remind you of growing up? We seriously had spaghetti at least twice per week. Once at my mom’s and once at my dad’s.
You may have heard that Boston got some snow last night. That brings our total to like 60” for the year. And it’s ONLY JANUARY! It took Matt and I an hour to dig out our driveway this morning. But at least it got our blood flowing and the sweat pouring out!! Unfortunately, we are seriously running out of places to put the snow! Here is a picture of the pile in our front yard.
It is seriously taller than I am. Poor April couldn’t get over the snow bank this morning for her walk! Her walk this evening was a bit better. And we saw some fun snow sculptures along the way.
It’s either a snow dog or Winnie the Pooh.
