We have had guests for a week and Mrs. Guest made dinner, serving Tossed salad, spaghetti with tomato sauce and garlic bread. I made Lemon Lady's lemon cake for dessert with coffee.

Yummy Kayelle!

We had 4 cheese ravioli with a vodka sauce and a big green salad. I've got a big glass of Merlot, and Ken had milk. LOL. Dessert is still up in the air. Maybe some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. We've got some dough in the fridge.

Here is GB's recipe. I kind of mess about with it. I start with crushed tomatoes, toss in some garlic and maybe a hint of brown sugar. I often put in some herbs...whatever strikes my fancy, but I do onion powder instead of onions because one of my kids picks out the smallest molecule of onion in ANYTHING. I simmer a bit, then take it off the heat, stir in some parmesan and pour in a generous splash of vodka, and then a big BIG splash of whipping cream. I serve this quickly with a filled pasta of some kind, usually ravioli.

If you're lazy, you can buy the jarred stuff too!

We had sauteed pork cutlets with garlic and onions, baked sweet potatoes, buttered baby peas, pickled green tomatoes, iced tea, and (for dessert) some cake mix cookies I created this afternoon. All was well received and we were sated.
