Sometimes, dinner plans just go out the window.
After a long day of work, all I wanted was something fast and comforting. The original plan was a meal that we both love, but it would have taken over an hour to get it assembled and wait for it to bake.
Since Maggie was home with me today, Nick and I decided to go for a run once he got home. By the time we got back and showered, it was already ten after 7, so I changed the menu.
One of the most comforting meals in my recipe box is my mom’s spaghetti sauce.
Even though I have the recipe, mine never tastes like hers. I’ve followed the recipe word for word but it’s never the same.
I can get it close enough, but I know there’s a difference.
While it doesn’t taste like it does at home, it’s a quick and delicious option for dinner.
And I always have to have peas with spaghetti. My mom always served peas with spaghetti. I don’t know why, but it’s tradition now.
All in all, I’d say this change of plans worked out perfectly tonight.
Do you have any family food traditions (serving certain veggies with dishes, making one meal a certain way that no one else does)?
