Happy First Day of Fall Everyone! I know that by late November I always question this, but Fall is without a doubt my all time favorite season. I love the colors, the crisp air, the pending holidays, and the culinary delights that seem to accompany this wonderful season.
Jeff and I tend to start to *nest* around this time of year; the house is kept warm and cozy, we spend many a night sitting on our front porch watching the leaves change, and delicious feasts become all the more frequent. So in that vein, I thought I’d share with you our most recent feast; a simple pot of Jeff’s homemade spaghetti sauce.
Jeff is actually just on his way home from a concert in New York City, but the night before he left, we decided to have a special at-home date. We have had a lot of little things to celebrate lately, and what better way than to spend some quality time together in the kitchen, preparing a lovely meal.
This sauce is so delicious AND so simple. However, I am sworn to secrecy with regards to Jeff’s secret ingredients, so for now all I can share are some photos of the process.
One thing that isn’t a secret is the fact that Jeff and I live relatively modestly, both being post- secondary grads and living in one of Canada’s most expensive cities. However, we made it a goal early on in our stay here that we would never sacrifice the comforts of home. Nights at the pub and the odd movie can be put aside, but we will always make it possible to have a nice meal and a cozy home.
It’s amazing that in a season when it seems things are starting to die off, we here at 406 are actually celebrating new beginnings and fresh ideas. Then again, with inspiration like this being placed on the kitchen table more and more often, maybe it’s no surprise that we are such a happy, refreshed pair.
