1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Many a Monday Quick Meal--Spaghetti

This is my simple spaghetti.

There have been many Mondays when I wonder what I should make for dinner.  I've needed something quick and easy.  That's why I've made this particular meal of simple spaghetti quite a few times.  I've modified it to fit the needs and wants of my family.

This is ground down beef.

First up is to brown ground meat.  All you need is a pound.  I use a bean smasher to break up the bigger pieces.  I've never made meatballs; someday, I'll make them.  I've made hamburger patties, and I don't like to get my hands dirty.

For a long time, I used only these spices for most of my meals.

Next, I add these spices.  Minced onion, ground black pepper and salt are my easy choices.  I do this in case I have leftover meat to use in another meal.

Hubby bought me this thin spaghetti.

Admittedly, you can use any sort of pasta for this meal.  There have been times I've used penne or rigatoni for my simple pasta meals. 

I made the whole bag of spaghetti.

I break up my pasta so that it is easier to slurp it into my mouth.  Sometimes, I cook half the bag of spaghetti.  Other times, I make the whole bag and save the leftovers for hubby's lunch for the following day.  

This spaghetti sauce is delicious.

I warm up the spaghetti sauce in another pot.  I don't mix it with the ground meat because not all of my family members like spaghetti sauce in their pasta.   

Here is a stack of toast that was for our meal.

My son made the toast.

I toast a few slices of bread.  I dab some butter, like Fleischmann's.  Sometimes, I sprinkle some garlic powder on my own slices.

These are some extras for our meal.

Lastly, I like to encourage my kids to eat vegetables.  Some of them will eat spinach.  My youngest likes the tomatoes.  I bring out these extras for the meal.  These are optional, like mozzarella cheese, croutons, and salad dressing.  

Well, thanks for viewing the pictures and 
reading this quick blog entry about how to make a quick spaghetti meal.

I hope you enjoyed this entry as much 
as I did in compiling it.
What about you, my readers? Do you ever eat spaghetti? What extras do you include in your spaghetti?  I hope you'll make some of this easy spaghetti.  It's versatile, cheap and easy to make on a busy day.

My beloveds, may God bless you with His peace and wisdom.
