Another Day, Another Bolognese

Handblender_3 I don't sleep well if I don't have a freezer full of Bolognese sauce. Yesterday I ate the last frozen container of it, so this morning I got up and made a new batch. I'm going to my brother's wedding over the weekend and I know I won't have time to cook. When we return on Sunday night, we might very well want to have Bolognese for dinner. Certainly we will sometime later that week. With the wedding approaching, we have a lot to do. This morning was no exception. I can't really telll you what we have to do, but it feels like a lot. Shine our shoes? Pick out the right tie? Oh, get all the clothes ready for the kids. I forgot about that. In any event, I didn't have long to make the Bolognese this morning. Fortunately, it doesn't take long to make (that is, if you don't count the three hours or so it takes to cook down). One of the things that makes it easy, is the hand-held immersion blender we have. It was a gift of my father-in-law a few years ago. I can puree three cans of peeled plum tomatoes in seconds. The sauce only took about a half hour of active labor. The quinoa salad my wife wanted was another story. I didn't manage to finish that before I had to run out the door for work. And I can't manage to give the recipe for the quinoa salad right now as I have to run out the door to get home. I hope I sleep well tonight.
