L is for Late and M is for Meat Sauce

Hey All- I'm sorry that I did not get to blog yesterday.  I  have been very busy and it has been hard to make time for  my blog.  Especially with school and Easter just around the corner.  My family and I have lots of menu planning and cooking to do.  So I am sorry to all my fellow bloggers that I am late with my letter L. I'm swamped this week! Please forgive me. Today I'm back with the letter M.  M is for my meat sauce.

This meat sauce is great for everything. My family uses it in everything from our lasagna to just dipping a nice slice of Italian bread in it.  Here's the recipe!

1 pound ground beef
3 cans tomato sauce
1 can  tomato paste
1 can diced tomato
1 can puree
1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning (to taste)
1 tsp of oregano, basil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder and one bay leaf
1 yellow onion diced
3 cloves of  garlic diced
1 tsp of extra-virgin olive oil

Saute the onion and garlic first, then leave it in pan. Brown the chop meat in same pan, drain the grease. Meanwhile, place all other ingredients in large pot on the stove and simmer. As soon as the meat mixture is drained, add it to the sauce. Simmer for at least an hour. Enjoy!


  1. Missed you yesterday, Faith! It's all good though.
    We don't do ground beef in our house, but I bet ground turkey would be just as tasty.

  2. You're not the only one who was late for 'L' but at your age, with your workload I think its understandable :)

    I haven't had pasta in a while. Maybe I'll try your meat sauce recipe next time I do.

  3. I'm so glad your back. I was afraid that you were sick again. two years ago when I did the A to Z Challenge, I had three different times when I needed to combine letters because of missed days. It's hard not to fall behind. You're doing great, hang in there, but never, Never, NEVER let something like blogging come before your school work.

    This meat sauce sound very much like one my Daddy used to make. I think I'll try it out, but without the meat, of course. Seems like it would be spicy enough as a plain meatless sauce. I'll let you know.

    Your Quiche was on the menu for tonight, but I didn't feel up to it (even as easy as it sounds), so we had left over chili instead. Tomorrow for sure.
