It's the little things in life that make me happy! I got so excited this afternoon as I was making dinner because I got to use some of my dried herbs for the first time. I had the boys bring down a jar of tomato sauce that I canned this summer using the instructions given to me by my new Italian friend. I threw the sauce in the pot and added some of my dried basil. Nothing else was needed. It was great!
I made Eggplant Meatballs to go along with our pasta. I guess it would be meat-less though. They turned out much better that I expected. My husband was a little concerned because we ended up with a vegetarian meal but I assured him that meat would be back on the table tomorrow!
Speaking of tomorrow... Tomorrow is the big game. Alabama vs LSU! I can't wait. It should be a great game! The whole family is getting together to watch it. My brother, who ended up a great cook, is making Bang Bang Shrimp. Mom is making seafood gumbo. I bought a gallon of oysters that were picked up at the gulf yesterday. A great game calls for great food, right?!
