It’s Friday ~ What’s for dinner??


Dinner with the Boy

Dinner with the Boy

While I realize that it is Food on Friday over at Ann Kroeker’s blog, I also realize my husband and oldest son will not be home for dinner tonight!!! My oldest kid is the cook of the house, I have retired!!!  🙂

No, James is a ‘Pastry Cook’, school and all……..and the man, my boy  ; )  ,can cook!! But, alas, I am on my own with the youngest son. Now the youngest, Shane, is a very picky eater! So what is for dinner???

What does the Boy like and will he cook? Can he cook? Yes, he can!!

I was a working mom most of their lives. Therefore my boys will make 2 women very happy women when they marry! These men can cook, clean, and do laundry, correctly. These men can be trusted with bleach!! Amazing I know! God was good to me.

Now, yes, Shane is able to cook, but what will he cook? Ravioli! That is what he will cook!!! He can even make the sauce! But I will do that tonight. Maybe he will cook with me, that remains to be seen, but here is my recipe for ” my pasta sauce” the original recipe is published on Helium, check out the link!

My Personal Family Marinara:

cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 medium white onion, finely chopped
4 large cloves of garlic, smashed and minced
1- 4ounce can of Cento tomato paste
4 quarts fresh canned tomatoes, crushed or puree
4 large fresh basil leaves
1 palm full of kosher salt, about a tablespoon
1 pinch of red pepper flakes, roughly rubbed to release oils

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
