Tonight I used my newest employee benefit, a Costco membership. I bought 6 pounds of ground beef for $2.99/lb. Some I used to make spaghetti sauce, the Man's favorite. Just a jar of sauce with ground meat, onions, and garlic. He used a partial jar of sauce the other night, so I had to supplement. I used a small can of fire roasted tomatoes purchased at Costco, and it made sauce taste just awful! He said that the sauce didn't taste any different. Proving my theory about the palate. Hopefully he will finish it this week, because I'm not touching it. I have some other yummy things from Costco that I'll eat instead, and I'm making meat loaf Tuesday. We're getting eggs from the back yard chickens, which the Man is squeamish about eating. He would rather use the white eggs from chickens that are penned and eating their own poop that eat the egg that goes straight from the chicken's vag to our plate. Couldn't be any fresher. He's forbidden from heating them in one of his crazy stove concoctions, where he just uses the whites, and discards the yolks. I don't want the beautiful back yard yolks thrown away. So, I need more egg recipes in my repetoire. Last week, I made quiche. It took forever to bake, so I'll reduce the amount of milk in the custard next time.
The photo was taken this past week in front of the store. Hoodie solidarity!
