Have I really not posted new recipes since the summer? This made me ponder if I had made anything new since the summer. The answer was yes, but honestly, there have been quite a few "cereal for dinner!" nights in there, too. I cracked open a few cookbooks this last week when I was *gasp* menu planning, and thought I'd share those recipes along with a few I've stashed away the last few months, as well.
This recipe for slow cooker marinara came from a new blog I've been following called Budget Bytes. Here is the original post on her site. This made enough for 3 meals. We ate one right away, and I froze the other two. I think the only thing I did differently was to make it smooth with my stick blender when it was done, to please my "no chunk" eaters. The sauce is so very rich and "real" tasting, compared to many jars and cans, and it made the house smell remarkable all day long!
