146.4...Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef

One of my husband’s favorite meals is spaghetti with meat sauce. He was quite pleased when he came home last night and saw exactly that cooking away on the stove. He was even more excited when he tasted it. It was fabulous (and easy)!

I served the spaghetti sauce on top of this Garlic Basil Linguine that I bought at Trader Joe’s:

Great combination! It also tasted great with the Caesar salad I made.

I love this breakfast. You’re going to see more of it. Apologies in advance.

The usual things happened this morning: school drop off, gym (Sculpt class) and errands. Lunch was egg salad on wheat toast with a salad tossed with Girard’s Light Champagne Vinaigrette.
