Going back to school has been an adjustment. The weather changed and is cool and damp. Donned a sweatshirt and even put the hood up (thanks Laura for leaving your Marquette hoodie in the drawer) Tonight my friend brought over a pot of Marcella Hazan’s Spaghetti Meat Sauce. Carrots and onions, some wine, cream, fresh tomatoes (I will have to ask for the specific recipe if anyone would like it) Steve brought some salad and a crusty loaf of Italian. J brought the cheese to grate over the pasta. The pasta was the thickest I had ever seen and just delicious. It went well with the thick meaty sauce. We had a nice meal together and good conversation, some laughs and though I was tired from teaching, the dinner was satisfying and appreciated. A real spirit lifter! Thanks J!
