Turns out this is one of those rare Sundays that I won’t be cooking. Weird, huh? I love to cook on Sundays, especially in the fall, oooh: cool air + time = soup or stew or roast or bread or vegetables or, or, or… But not today, man, our fridge is bursting with tasties, a food bomb ready to explode, BAM! Don’t worry, we’ll defuse carefully, a meatball here, some clam chowder there (I had a meatball for breakfast, in fact, yum).
Why so much food? Wellll, turns out I was solo for dinner on both Thursday and Friday nights, so the big ol’ pot of Manhattan Clam Chowder I made on Thursday is still pretty big, and the shrimp cocktail I made on Friday is still untouched by John. And then last night we had Suz, The Coreman, Vivian, and Sullivan over for a Break-from-UnpackingSpaghetti Dinner (recipe posted in comments, below), with meatballs and garlic bread and salad and Cake-Eater Chocolate Cake. Uff. One of the more filling meals I’ve made in awhile, although sometimes a homemade meatball really hits the spot, you know? Kind of like a matzo ball. Random… Anyhow, we have lots of meatballs, and pasta, and bread, and cake, and whipped cream…oh my, you get the picture.
Excess! Bursting! No cooking! And we’ll enjoy every bite…
