Wednesday - afternoon & dinner...

...another beautiful fall day and the last school day for this week.  It is somewhat like a little fall vacation.  Nice :) Wednesday however was spent at the usual venues.  Both girls at school, and both parental units at work. Wednesday is also the day of piano lessons for both girls which is a favorite for the ladies. By the time piano lesson comes around, it is usually time for me to start making dinner.

Alena's lesson was first yesterday, and Mia Rose wanted to help me in the kitchen.  Yay - she first worked on taking dishes out of the dishwasher, and then she was my assistant extraordinaire in putting together the salad dressing.  Onions, salt, pepper, paprika, some mustard - she mixed it all together until it was a paste; I added olive oil and balsamico to complete the dressing while she kept stirring.  Mia Rose of course had to taste it before she left the kitchen for her lesson...Alena also wanted to help, and she assisted in peeling carrots for our mixed green salad for dinner.

Oh, and what you ask was dinner?  Well, it was cheater dinner of sorts.  Yes, that is what I will call it.  I chopped an onion, sautéed it in a little bit of olive oil added bulk mild Italian sausage I got at  New Seasons Market.  Once the sausage was nice and crumbly I added - yes, I admit to it - a jar of Newman's Own Sockaroni Pastasauce -> . It is so good - also just on it's own with pasta. Served it atop of pasta, parmesiano regiano and a side of mixed green salad with carrots.
