Day 40: Dinner Anyone?

Dear Family-

Today I get to tell you about my first cooking adventure in Wonderland. Courtesy of the wonderful supplies sent by you all, today's task was to make a batch of spaghetti sauce to have pre-made food readily available for my days off and stuff. I was able to find several one pound blocks of frozen ground beef in the PX. Each pack was priced at $3.35. I thawed them overnight and started cooking the next morning. I was light on seasonings, but I was able to cook the meat in salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

It was weird cook on the small electric stove, but I got the hang of it. I had to add a lot more seasoning by the time it was done cooking. Once I had the meat cooked and seasoned, I added the sauce and let it all simmer together for a while.

I took the pot off of the stove and let it cool for a while and then started packing it away in serving size bags that I could freeze.

By the time I was done, I had ten serving size bags to put in the freezer. Pretty cool, huh?

Love you!

You cook upside down? Actually, I'm impressed. Great work.
