Hunting season is among us, which means I have a lot of none husband time. No worries, I put the Malocchio on him…..He hasn’t had a deer in 10 years. I just had to blast my neighbor with the same Malocchio as he likes to hang his deer in his yard, which I find very offensive, hope you see this neighbor.
So my husband was sleeping in the woods and missed Sunday Sauce, so I was complied to make a quick Sunday like dinner on a Monday when he came home. I know, I’m the best wife ever!!! Why I feel having pork is better then deer, I don’t know, some how it work in my head… I have to say everyone loved my Quick Easy Monday Sauce and Quick Easy Italian Bread was Delicious!
