Nope I don't. Know a few people who think what I do is hard, but can go out move rocks and dig ditches all day. Sometimes I think I didn't choose so wisely. When you finish a job that requires physocal labor it is so much more rewarding.

I don't really make a marinara, mine's more of a general red sauce with no herbs beyond bay leaf, but a ton of mushrooms, onion, olives, & a healthy dash of red wine and cayenne (and, of course, tomatoes & tomato paste)

I consider red sauce an abomination, as I cannot have it, yet I crave it.

TPBM can't taste the difference between herbs, as all they have in their cupboard is sad, dry green stuff in Spice Island bottles.

Fresh mint last night. It was very minty.

Absolutely. Two orphan Thanksgiving dinners with great friends, a bit of football, then Cyber Monday? What's not to love.

TPBM doesn't know what Cyber Monday is.

Tofu is a blank slate - it's the other ingredients (or a marinade) that give it flavor. So, depending on what dish it's in, yes, I do like it. However, just a raw slab of it - *yech*.

Already got a bride. And a groom, if I ever lose the bride. And, um, "special guest stars". I have shopped online for cats, however.
