Home Cooking, Episode 2

Tonight's dinner, eaten while watching an episode of Time Team on YouTube, was pork in tomato sauce over Barilla whole grain rotini pasta. Lisa used half a package of ground pork, browned in olive oil and Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce, with a can of Giorgio mushroom pieces and stems. The base sauce is Di Napoli Classico Tomato & Basil no sugar added. Lisa also added a small can of tomato paste and added additional basil and oregano. There was enough for our dinner tonight and my lunch tomorrow (and maybe another thereafter).

After dinner we went out for a walk, which I really need to take after eating that pasta. The walk was delayed a bit by a phone call from my father. I don't talk to Dad very often, but we spent half an hour or so talking about how we're all getting along. The isolation isn't bothering him as he's got ten acres of land on which he lives near Lake Oroville, the maintaining of which is a full time job (he's a retired forest ranger).
