Oh dear! Let us know if it gets too hard for you. Maybe we can help. 1+1=? That's the best I can do. Good luck! If he fails, remember he has you to blame!

Pix of ingredients and bubbling sauce. DH bought that ground oregano from his budget, but I couldn't use it. I used dried oregano from my garden. And I don't usually use pre-minced garlic, but we had this left over from another trip and it's easier than peeling and mincing 12 cloves I think the pot holds 12 quarts (3 gallons) so I guess I have about 1.5 gallons of sauce. Plenty of room in the pot
That sauce looks delicious! I am on my way. Just answer the door when you hear the doorbell.

I've had it for ages and when it was manufactured, about an inch of the applied pocked was misstitched and there has been an opening there. I never remember to fix it until I have the garment on. I said Sunday night that I was going to repair it on Monday.

Well, it's Wednesday and, at least, the lounger has made its way to the kitchen counter near the door to the studio. I think I have a running chance of achieving my goal today.

Better late than never.
You'll get it done if you keep putting it in an awkward place where you will see it frequently. It'll nag you until you give up and get it done. At least, that's what works for me.

Pac, your non-sequitur from the vet to shooting had me read this twice. At first I thought you didn't like the new vet and you were going to shoot him/her.

Thanks, Addie! I hope you like a bowl of sauce! I'm assembling it all tomorrow. Come to think of it, I could probably sit down with a bowl of this. DH got dried basil and I said NOOOOOOOO! So he went back to the store and came home with one of those fresh basil plants they sell in the produce section and I used some of that. It tastes incredible and the house smells amazing. It's cooling now.

Do you grow basil, GG? I just dug mine up, potted it, and plan to overwinter it again. I still have the basil I dug up 2 years ago. It won't win any beauty pageants, but it's so nice to have fresh basil all year 'round.

I've been know to do that
No connection.

And wouldn't you know I had my four wheeler loaded up, the dogs in their area and it started to hail as I rode away. The kind that hurt. The size of peas or a little larger. Stupid weather.

We were having landscape work finished up this time of year a few years ago. I had a pot of sauce simmering on the stove. When the landscaper popped his head into the house to ask me something he swooned! I didn't have any pasta cooked, so I cut up chunks of whatever hearty white bread was in the breadbox and stuck a couple pieces in two bowls, one for each guy. They were thrilled to see me coming over with that sauce!
