Ludlow: More adventures in the kitchen
My reputation with kitchens is anything but good. But every once in a while, I get the urge to cook something that I’m hungry for. The other night, I decided to cook up some spaghetti sauce.
Now I don’t make anything from scratch. So when it comes to spaghetti sauce, I start with Emeril’s Kicked up Tomato Sauce and doctor it up. I usually dice up onions and green peppers, add a can of tomato sauce and cook it all together for a couple of hours.
After about an hour and a half, I decided it was time to cook the spaghetti. Well I realized I had a problem when I looked in the cupboard and there was no spaghetti. I was out and it was a Saturday night and the Piggly Wiggly was already closed. I did have macaroni, but didn’t think it would be the same, so instead of spaghetti and garlic bread I had a Spam sandwich for supper. I put the sauce in containers and then into the freezer to eat later. I did keep one container out to eat the next day, after a trip to the store. And though delayed for a day, it was still good on Sunday.
A group of us went over to the Fox Valley Country Club near Freedom on Tuesday. Gail Haack’s son Jason is a pro there, and he saw to it that we had different events for the occasion that made it more fun. Thanks Gail and Jason, for making all the arrangements and ensuring a good time was had by all. The course is in great shape. It was a hot and humid day, however the the rain that was in the forecast for Tuesday never happened. All in all, it was a good day for golf.
As of this writing, the Packers are gearing up for the final preseason game at Kansas City Thursday night. Who will make the team and who will be looking for work when this week ends is the big question. A lot of the younger players are probably waiting and wondering what’s in store for them.
All in all, I think the Pack has a lot of potential for a successful season. As long as Aaron Rodgers can stay healthy and if Jordy Nelson can return to his excellent form prior to his season-ending injury last year. Those are two big ifs.
The first three games are at Jacksonville, at Minnesota and at home against Detroit. After those three, we should have a pretty good idea of what kind of a season it will be. I’m going out on a limb and predicting the Packers will win its first three games. (fingers crossed) I hope I’m right. Time will tell.
Have a great week, everyone!
