When I was growing up my mom used to make this soup creamy broccoli soup that actually made vegetables enjoyable. It reminds me a little bit of pot pie, which is probably because the base is a creamy white sauce made with a roux. It’s enough to make me want to start all my soups from roux and caramelized onions.
I love cooking, but I hate washing a million dishes. So if I could make a great tasting meal that doesn’t use multiple dishes, I’m all for it. With this recipe I can make spaghetti and meat sauce all in one pot without even having to drain it.
With very little chopping or measuring, you can throw a delicious meal together using only one pot. This spaghetti and meat sauce recipe is great for weeknights.
I have a grandma who is not technically my grandma. She is my cousins’ grandma. But she is my Grandma Irene. I’ve called her Grandma Irene since the time I was a little kid. If you were to meet her she just might introduce herself to you as Grandma Irene too because that’s who she is.
You see, she’s not technically related to me because she is my cousins’ grandma on their dad’s side and we’re related because our moms are sisters. It’s confusing to explain. She’s part of my family though.
She’s smart and determined. She took college classes when her children were grown. She walks three miles just about every day. She’s giving and kind. She cares for animals, including injured birds and the dog she loves so much. And just about every Christmas she would make these delicious apricot horn cookies.
