One of the first meals I cooked for Mr. Gray was spaghetti. He loves spaghetti and requests it often. Luckily, it’s easy, freezes well, and, as you can see, Baby Gray loves it, too!
I’m not a from-scratch spaghetti sauce maker, I’m more of a Sanda-Lee-semi-homemade kind of girl. I usually buy a chunky, veggie-filled sauce and dial it up a notch. Our favorite spaghetti sauce additives are mushrooms, spinach, and zucchini. I make sure there are plenty of chunky tomatoes, too. While I’m at it, I make way too much–on purpose. Then, I get a gallon freezer bag, scoop a little sauce in, and lay it flat to freeze.
It thaws very quickly, stores easily, and is just as delicious as the first time I made it! Ta-da! Dinner in thirty minutes or less!
After we eat, we have the following conversation:
Me: Was your spaghetti good?
Baby Gray: (With feeling) Yee-ah!
Like father, like son, I guess.
