Slow Cook Spaghetti (S'ghetti) Sauce...

Slow Cook Spaghetti Sauce....or as the kids call it...S'ghetti Sauce! I hadn't slow-cooked spaghetti sauce in a very long time! Just busy I guess! But, WOW, the flavors after cooking all day were amazing to say the least.

So, while I was finishing up the salad and bread...I noticed Ornery at the crockpot...DISHING up his FOOD! He couldn't wait! After a while, I asked he what he thought? (Half a plate was gone and no COMMENTS!) He finally replied, "NOW, this is SPAGHETTI !!!!" Needless to say...there were FOUR helpings served, TWO people, I had ONE serving, GUESS who had the rest!!!!  :)))


 Slow Cooked Spaghetti Sauce
   The CattleQueen Cooks

Ingredients:

  • 3 jars of garlic style spaghetti sauce (or your favorite style)
  • 1 small can of tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 soft cube of chicken broth (I use Knorrs brand)
  • 4 cloves of roasted garlic, diced fine or minced
  • Pine Creek Ranch Garlic Pepper seasoning, to taste (recipe here)
  • Majoram (Oregano) to taste
  • 1 cup of red table wine (or substitute with water), *alcohol cooks out
  • 4-6 stalks of green onions, washed and sliced
  • 1 can of sliced olives, drained
  • 1 box of fresh mushrooms, washed & sliced
  • 4 large garlic sausages, fully cooked, diced small, drained
  • 1 pound of lean hamburger , seasoned lightly with salt and pepper, cooked & crumbled
Directions:


  1. Place all ingredients, cooked and prepared, into a large crock pot. Cook on simmer for at least 4-5 hours. This will blend all of the spices/ingredients together nicely. The aroma is amazing.
  2. Cook one package of Spaghetti, al dente, drain and add to the prepared sauce just before serving
It's that easy....
This recipe makes a fair amount of Spaghetti...BUT who doesn't LOVE Spaghetti leftovers??? 
And besides,  it freezes well.
So worth the wait....

Vintage Dressmaker's Form becomes a Floor Lamp...

I love vintage Dressmaker form's, every seamstress does. I bought this particular one from a very good friend at a local store, Discover Earth Eco Boutique. The finished project came together quickly and goes perfectly in our guest room! Our guest room features the christening pictures of all our grandchildren, our wedding and our parents weddings, A 5 generation of photo, my christening photo, grandma's lipstick holders, a vintage perform bottle, my parents honeymoon luggage and more....

Take a closer look...and don't forget to Check out my friend, Mary Jayne's store, Discover Earth Eco Boutique on FaceBook. Or if you are local, stop by her store and see all of her lovely items for sale at  636 Main Street in Red Bluff, Ca.       Enjoy...


 I love how my new, vintage lamp looks!

 This was my dress form before.....
 And after.....SO simple.... I simply took the back of the dress form apart and re attached it around the new floor lamp I purchased!
 The old fashioned light bulb was a nice finish for the lamp!
 This area is just behind the door in the bedroom......it features one piece of my parents honeymoon suitcases....& of course another dress form from Discover Earth Boutique!
