Failure to Plan

I planned to make spaghetti today; and, I did.

As I type, the sauce is simmering in the crock pot, the aroma wafting its way toward me.

Earlier, I swore I had oregano, as it turns out I didn’t. A quick search of the internets told me that a third more marjoram is a substitute; and, it seems to be working out.

I also swore I had cheese. I do have the cheap singles stuff and some swiss. A search a few minutes ago turns up no parmesan, no any Italian sprinkle or grate on cheese.

You can’t have spaghetti without it. So, as the wonderful aroma surrounds me, I’m going to console myself with the fact that the sauce is going to taste even better tomorrow after sitting in the frig for a day, during which time I will get some good cheese.

Now, what do I eat?

Go buy the cheese right now and eat the spaghetti tonight! It'll only take ten minutes or so. It's not like you live in Siberia.

But there's less traffic in Siberia, so it will take about the same time to get to the store either way...
