We have friends coming over for spaghetti on the weekend, which was the impetus for this morning's cooking session, but much of this will end up in meal-sized packages to enjoy in upcoming months. All five of us love it. We made well over ten litres of sauce, which we typically dilute a little with a commercial spaghetti sauce when serving it up (because the sauce is very thick and hearty when coming out of the oven).
The kids are always wanting to help in the cooking department and so we let them experience the 'sadness' of peeling onions.
Note the boys' glasses/goggles, as they attempted to prevent stinging eyes from the onions. Matthew's goggles worked far better than Seth's sunglasses. It's hard to tell from this picture that Lizzie is crying from the onions.
Ready for mixing and roasting in the oven for several hours.
