I hit the jackpot when one of the gentlemen cooked up what he called Ragu Napolitano. I'm off to the butcher this morning to purchase a cheap cut of beef, pork ribs, and Italian sausage for this dish. I have everything else in the house.
I began the day with a hearty breakfast of oatmeal, milk, fruit, and an English muffin topped with peanut butter. Hopefully this breakfast will be the start of my journey back to healthy eating because I'm one to not eat a meal when I should be eating three a day.. I also brewed tea for iced tea that will flush out the kidneys, making them happy once again. Plain unsweetened tea is my favorite.
I took a few minutes break from blogging to go to the butcher for the meat needed to make the Ragu Napolitano. Next to the butcher shop is a garden store that had a sign declaring there was a farm market inside. Again, I hit jack pot. Right there in front of me was a bushel of South Carolina peaches, Ripe
ones. Small peaches with fuzz on the skin. Real organically grown peaches that when I bit into one the juice rolled down my arm. Heavenly is the only word to describe that first slobbering bite. Life is good!
The Ragu is on the stove and needs to simmer for 2 hours more. Add some noodles and I've got a meal fit for an Italian Mama. I can't wait for it to be ready. I think I'll pick some of the outer lettuce leaves in the garden and top them with olive oil and lemon juice for a side salad.
