Pasta And Meat Sauce, Yum Yum!

August 26, 2019

Good morning.  The sun is shining and the temperature is 55F degrees.  In a few hours temps should get up to around 71F degrees.  After the heat we've had, this is just too cool too fast.  I'm actually going to have to get out a flannel housecoat to keep warm.

Oops, the sun just went back in behind a cloud.  I guess it's going to be one of those days where the sun plays hide and seek with the clouds.   I just hope it warms up soon.  I'm not liking the cold. 

Yesterday I had me a nap after posting here.  My eyes were wicked tired.  After a few hours, I was able to make my way to the kitchen and make a meat sauce.  I must say it came out really good considering it was only 80 calories and 55 mg sodium per serving.  The pasta has no sodium and only 200 calories per serving. 

I cooked half the pasta and saved the other half in a baggie in the fridge.  I used half the meat sauce, and froze the other half.  Now I don't know about you, but I'm not happy with a teaspoon of this, two tablespoons of that and a half cup of this on my plate.  When I eat pasta I want a bowl full.  (equals two servings) for a total of 404 calories and 185 mg sodium.  I think I got the math right.  I'll double check it later.

I have a photo to share.  This was a tender moment between father and daughter (Eddie and Jazzy) at the show Saturday night during the intermission.  I love taking unposed photos. 

I have two more videos to share with you today.  This first one is rather humorous.  It's the wedding day for Paul and Amy, starring Jazzy, Nick and Erin.

This next number was an audience favorite.  De, Jazzy and Erin perform Proud Mary

Today I'm going to try to fill up another bag for Good Will.  If  I accomplish that, I'll be happy.  Tonight I'm going to polish off the left over pasta and meat sauce, then tomorrow I'm going to try making stuffed peppers.  One green pepper, one red one and one orangy yellow one.

I noticed yesterday that one of my butterfly bushes that had died out is making a come back.  I'll have to get out in the yard and take some photos.  This is the white bush.  I wonder if the purple bush will revive itself too.  That would really be nice.  I do have a couple new house plants, but I'll chat more about them tomorrow.

I borrowed this next image from the web.  Please, please, if you see an animal in need of any kind of help, stop and help it.  If you can't help, at least please call the police or an animal rescue group, or take it to a near by veterinary clinic.  We are the only ones who can help our animals.  They need us and we need them.

Now I'm off to catch up on my blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Eddie look at Jazz with that proud poppa look in his eyes and it show how proud he is of his baby girl. I guess we as parent love all our babies and I wonder sometimes how any parent can abuse, or abandon their own child. They are our blessings.

Your meat sauce and pasta sound good and I wish I was there to help you eat the stuffed peppers. I will probably be cooking some soon. I am a copy cat when I hear about good food. I am cooking fish today. Not sure about the veggies yet. I am just greedy. I cannot measure my food. I assume I do to a certain extent because I can't eat very much at a time which is probably a good thing. I never measure or watch calories. I only watch the salt intake. To a certain level that is but I do have salt. I use the Cajun season salts and I think it's a lot safer to control your salt intake. I can't eat bland tasting food. I've never been a person that gain a lot of weight and always weighed around 125 to 135 all my life until I got older. Now I weigh 151 and proud of my weight. I've learned that you never want to be too small because if you get sick your weight fall off very fast. That happen to me, but I regained most of it back in the last 2 years. I hope you and Pogo have a great day and send me the cold weather that you don't want. We need it here in Texas. It's a scorcher out there.

Love your shares and the photo of Jazzy and her dad, priceless. I think your sauce sounds delightful. I am always looking for healthy recipes. We were in the 90's and I am not a heat of the extreme heat. Today it's in the 80's. But by week's end more heat wave, so who knows! Stay comfoy and enjoy your week. HUGS and LOVE

Love the videos and the heartwarming photo of Eddie and Jazzy. Oh, I love pasta and spaghetti sauce. So glad you enjoyed it. We have a purple butterfly bush and as long as we dead head the old blooms, it just keeps on going. It's been many years, but I did have a white and yellow butterfly bush. Wishing you a restful night.

It got colder here too. It's not really cold, but compared to the 98* weather we've been having, 75* is rather chilly. Love the picture of Eddie and Jazzy. Such a look of love between them. You can tell he's proud of his "little girl."

Your food sounds really good. I have all the fixings for stuffed peppers so now I think I will make them tomorrow. You made me hungry for them. Keep up the good work with your meal planning. 400 calories for a meal is not bad at all.
