Dumb-luck special

The other day, we had a bit of an early April Fool's joke. While we were driving, a jar of pre-made spaghetti sauce jumped out of a cupboard and crashed onto the floor. It took a stop by the side of the road and a fair bit of cleaning up, but both of us were happy that the jar didn't break and that most of the sauce even stayed inside.

Still, because it had been opened, it seemed like we should use it, so pasta it was.

I pulled out a pack of Italian-sausage-stuffed ravioli (that little freezer is amazing) and while that cooked, I improvised with the sauce, adding basil and garlic and the last bit of salsa from our appetizer snack (wheat crackers with two tiny pots for dipping -- one of sour cream, one of the salsa).

Then, when the ravioli was cooked and drained, I added the last bit of sour cream before I added the sauce.

And beacuse we still didn't use up all the tomato sauce, into a container and then into the magic freezer it went. No doubt, some other night, it will make an encore appearance.

As for this final pic, it wasn't until the day after the spill (on the floor) that I happened to look up at the ceiling -- the air conditioner wearing its own bits of red sauce!
