I can get lost in computer land. Things I am supposed to be attending to can fall by the wayside as I escape into cyberspace. That happened today, after I started hamburger browning for husband and son's spaghetti and meat sauce meat. I was surfing blogs, oblivious to the world around me until the strong scent of very well done beef penetrated my senses and jerked me back to the present.
I went into my kitchen and lifted the lid on the pan, expecting something burned to a crisp and inedible. It was just this side of that. Salvageable and edible. Even more so after it had cooked in the sauce for a good, long while.
Luckily, (sadly???) my husband and son are accustomed to being offered interestingly cooked meals, so this sauce will not come as a shock to them. They will happily pile spaghetti on their plates and dump copious amounts of the sauce over it and eat it with gusto. And I will sigh and thank God that I (barely) dodged yet another culinary bullet.
I don't know why I don't use husband and son's names in this blog. I suppose neither would really mind and let's face it... I highly doubt many people are actually reading this dreck, so privacy isn't such a big issue. And, nowadays, if someone really wanted to find out their names, I imagine that they could.
So, perhaps I will introduce them more fully, soon.
