We had spaghetti with meat sauce tonight for supper. Very tasty. It reminded me of dinners we had when I was little. Mother always canned tomatoes in the summer, along with cherries, grape juice, green beans, corn, pumpkin for pies, & I don't remember what else. One of my very favorite meals was spaghetti with heated tomatoes poured over. No spices added, just tomatoes. It was delicious.

She told me (after I was all grown up) that she always felt bad serving tomatoes over spaghetti, as she only made it if she didn't have money to buy meat for dinner. That mades me very sad, because it was one of my favorites, and I don't think I ever told her how good it was.

Be thankful for the food you get & praise the cook. It might be the nicest thing you can do, especially in times of need.

Praise for the cook keeps the cook happy which makes the cook want to cook again.

The Cook.

I remember going to her house and having boxed spaghetti dinners. I always liked it, I don't think we ever had it at home.
