You Can't Win Every Day

It was not a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day or anything, but I did burn the sauce at lunch time and that was not super terrific. It was not a winning lunch, but it was lunch none the less. I didn't hear anyone complain (through the closed kitchen door, exhaust fan running, water gushing...).  Early into the fiasco I decided not to panic. My only choice at saving the lunch was to get the meatballs out of the sauce before the taste of burnt tomatoes permeated everything. Perhaps I succeeded, or perhaps they didn't know the difference. One great failure out of the last couple months is  not so very bad, right?

The morning started cold and frosty. Had to let the engine run a little to defrost my windshield and took s few photos while I waited. And a few more on the way to work. They don't do the morning's beauty justice. It was a stunning ride to work. I try to soak it in as I drive.

  2. Pretty! By the time I went to work it had melted. I started at 8:30. Glad you were able to salvage your sauce!

    1. I salvaged the meatballs. Thankfully they were having meatball subs and not spaghetti.

  3. You know if it tasted awful children would say so, so I’m guessing it was OK:) Kids tell it like it is :-) lovely photos.
