i write

man, i want to respond to martinhesselius's comment really bad. but it would just take so much effort and concentration... and i'm all... *yawn*

holy fucking shit sal. nice party. crazy!! reinforcement that Cakes Plus rules. some guy that thinks he's hot shit was hitting on me. a married guy was trying to defend the classic het male stance on cheating. i think i fought with him for an hour or so. i hope the pictures i took with sal's camera come out! or maybe i don't... jack was nice enough to drive me home and get me away from the guy hitting on me. as i was too drunk to consider ever getting home safely.

you'd *think* that after drinking all that red wine (some directly form the bottle) and THEN getting my hangover *before* i went to sleep, that i wouldn't want to look at red wine ever again. but i told tiff i would make her spaghetti dinner, so i did. and she brought wine. i had a glass. it was ok, but the sauce i made was so fucking awesome. i just had some leftover for my midnight snack. we chatted, she took me back to my car which was still at sal's, a hornet got in the apartment while we were smoking, i got freaked out that it would sting the cat. and to top it all off, i cleaned! like, the same day that i cooked! then i tried to take a nap but mostly watched trading spaces and law and order. which, i will note: there are memorial day marathons of BOTH shows tomorrow, so i find myself in a horrible dilemma... which to tape?????

oh, and if i never hear from my ex-fiance again, it might just be too soon. nobody deserves the shit he dishes out. i'm so stupid for letting him near me.

I'm fully aware of my flaws, thanks, and people who can actually call themselves my friends are nice enough to point them out with kind words, not stinging barbs.]

Hey - my "work" week is already 1/3 over... hopefully it will indeed be a good week. And may yours be too. Remember you can always call. :)

The recipe sounds good...what on earth led to the Chivas? I'm not going to go buy any just for spaghetti sauce, but it's an interesting notion. I make mine with ground turkey (which is a little dry but with enough tomato sauce it's just dandy), sweet vidalia onions, and also turkey pepperoni. Fantastico!

You know, I should have seeked out the ground turkey. I will remember that next time. I think the Chivas was basically, I was standing over the pot with all the cupboards open trying to decide what things I had in there would make tastier sauce. I looked over and saw I had a few bottles of whiskey and thought, huh. Why not? So I tossed it in, and by god if that sauce wasn't really tasty. Tastier than previous times I'd made it without the scotch. Also, I like to think it helps cuts the acid, because my dad told me once to put in a spoonful of sugar to do that. My problem with that being that I hate the idea of sweet spaghetti sauce. That's why my lazy ass doesn't eat it out of jars, they make it too darn sweet.

another possibility
The sauce does sound good. But I agree with meercat about the ground turkey (my wife has taught me the finer things in low-fat cooking). You also can add a little bit of turkey sausage (morningstar makes very tasty tangy sausage) to the sauce while helps destribute a rich flavor and supplement the ground turkey.
