Make it right by making it yourself
Yesterday I picked up sandwiches for my wife and I for lunch. My wife ordered turkey on a roll with lettuce and tomato. We got them home and after the first bite, no tomato. The day before we picked something up from the diner. I asked for some gravy for the fries on the side. We get home and no gravy for the fries. 2 days before I pick up Chinese food. Get it home, no crispy noodles for the soup. Sunday after church I always get breakfast sandwiches and bagels. Yes, one more foe pa, I take the first bite of my bacon & egg and the salt, pepper and ketchup was missing. What do you have to do to get complete orders and things exactly the way you want them? Read on and find out.
It sounds like I eat out often, and I do. Being so busy cooking for everyone else I only cook when I have a day off or when I am not too busy. After running around crazy yesterday I was simply exhausted and wanted to just pick up some simple macaroni and salad but I knew I would be disappointed. So, after driving my daughter to and from play practice in West Orange and ferrying her to fencing practice in Scotch Plains I ran home whipped up some simple marinara sauce, a simple salad and some tiny little pizzas I actually used heavily toasted English muffins as a base. I ran back to pick up my daughter, quickly cooked the linguine, put the pizzas in the oven and we were eating in 10 minutes. You have no idea how wonderful it was to eat perfectly cooked linguine, so simple yet so many restaurants overcook it. We had the most wonderful dinner. Everyone cleaned their plates. Such a simple meal prepared in no time. Might I also add how inexpensive it was. After a nice dinner and bottle of wine I conclude; don't be lazy like I have been. Make it yourself so you get it right every time! It can be that simple.
Those who can do, those who can't, come see me and I will teach you. I am always glad to share recipes. If you would like to have my simple recipe for marinara sauce send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
