Well yesterday was a little different. I only used one can of jar sauce and I used a lot - and I do mean a lot - of noodles. We were planning for leftovers. To top it off, I had a couple of tomatoes sitting in the fridge that needed to be used. So, to make the sauce go further, I decided to chop up those tomatoes and add them to the sauce. Naturally, this threw the taste off so I had to add extra spices and seasonings to make it taste brilliant. And that is what I did.
So naturally, after a nice romantic dinner (with three screaming kids!) we decided to veg out in front of the TV and watch a nice romantic movie. Ok - so we watched the 5 Year Engagement. Nothing says romance like waiting it out!
Sadly the night had come to an end and with all the kids in bed, we decided to head in the same direction. As we lay there, my husband gives me a kiss good night...
"You smell like Spaghetti," I told him.
He gave me a strange look, raising his eyebrows just a bit.
"I promise you, I did brush my teeth," he said.
"It isn't your teeth. I think the spaghetti smell is just radiating from you."
"Radiating from me?"
"Yeah - kind of like Eau de Spaghetti!"
"It isn't a bad smell or anything. I like spaghetti," I reassured him.
"I guess there are other smells that could be worse."
"Yeah - like dog shit baking in 110 degrees from the California hot sun wafting in our backyard!"
"Wow! That's specific!"
"Well, that does smell worse! I bet it was all the garlic I used in the spaghetti. I had to tune out the really tomatoey taste from the fresh tomatoes!"
"The sauce was good though," he reassured me.
"Yeah, it was! Spicy too. You could really tell I used those Red Pepper Flakes. And I didn't even use that much. Not like the garlic! I just dumped that in!"
"You did use a lot of garlic."
"It didn't smell bad, though." I half asked and half stated.
"Well - no - it didn't smell bad. At least nothing like dog shit baking in 110 degree temps."
"We have awesome pillow talk!"
