Sickie Ickie Cook - warning no BGE content

The Spouse has contagious bacterial pneumonia, and is under house arrest (quarantine).  The medicine she is taking requires very little physical activity, so it is just sitting around all day.

She didn't want our usual Egg fare; she wanted something rich with sauce.  She got spaghetti, which we very seldom cook these days. 

Sauce was home-canned tomatoes, tomato paste, red wine, garlic, onions and sweet peppers.  Publix mild Italian sausage.  All cooked in one pot, starting with the sausage and a little olive oil.

Salad was romaine, spinach and leaf lettuce, with red cabbage from the garden, some carrot chips, onions and sweet peppers.

Finished with really good garlic bread and white wine.

All of it cooked on that thingie in the kitchen, you know where I store my cast iron pot.

    I bet she appreciated a wonderful meal, despite the fact that it was non-Egg fare! :)

    That's a lot better then the takeout that I typically get when my wife is under the weather, well played Doc.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    At first I wasn't sure what you meant, we store cookie sheets in that kitchen thingy. Cast Iron pots are in the pantry. 
    Anyway, great cook Doc, give her a hug and wish her the best from us.

    Homemade spaghetti sauce is good from time to time;  take care of her!

     Your meal looks great, and it was put together with TLC. Put some chicken noodle soup on the thingy in the kitchen, and feed that to your sweetheart too. Hope she is feeling better soon.

    Love Egg'd food, but I will never give up my spaghetti + sauce.
