I woke up Thursday morning...dragging myself out
of bed, with no ambition.. and starting a pity party for
I was bummed because I couldn't figure out my
and I couldn't multi-task anymore...
It seem like every time, I had more than a few
things in the works, it would mess up and scramble with my molecules...
So I dragged my pity party butt out... and then I
A.A.D.D.(Adult Attention Deficiency Disease) must have kicked in...
I was fixing my breakfast, and saw all those
tomatoes that I needed to do something with. I had looked up the recipe the night before on how to make marinara
sauce. I got the onions out and the peppers, and the garlic

for 4 hours... at the same time, while waiting for the onions to
sauté.. I stripped my bed. put on new sheets. Ate breakfast, put the roaster in the oven,
started up the washer for the sheets I took off...

With that done, I turn to the sauce to see how it
was doing..it tasted kind of bland.. so added some dried
onions, more seasoning... and put it back.
Got the mail from my neighbor to mail, got the
other mail..ran to the bank and got things done there... came
back and tasted the sauce.. EXCELLENT.
Which brings me to the problem of ....how did I
make the sauce taste as good?
Because I don't know how much I put of each in it. so won't be able to duplicate it. Kind of like a meat loaf I made some time ago... it was the best, the most moist,
tasting meat loaf I have every made.. for the life of me, I don't know
what I did different. But
