Practically the first thing I did when I got home Saturday night was make dinner. Headed for a basic tomato sauce with spaghetti, I ended up with Amatraciana (just red onion, bacon, hot pepper and tomatoes). The recipe is in http://www.amazon.com/Lucindas-Rustic-Italian-Kitchen-Lucinda/dp/0471793817. And, thanks to hubs excellent shopping which he did before heading out on a business trip to Las Vegas, I also had some broccoli to steam. Along with wine; organic red from Pasanella & figlio, rosso wine (the flavor w/value incredible $10.99) www.pasanellaandson.com the meal was mad comforting. And, if spaghetti is the first thing to make upon a return home–lunch the next day was equally as simple; a tuna sandwhich. These are very small pleasures which add up to big and good feelings because cooking at home is the most normal, simple and essential thing you can do.
