“This was an inspired thought that sometimes happens when you think you are going to make one meal...everyone says they don't want it and magically it turns into something else..much better than the original plan! This was my fast meatloaf solution turned into spaghetti sauce. It's fun to play with and may evolve into something else if you don't watch out!”
