Spaghetti and Dill Pot Roast

The menu changed a little this week.
Johnny and I took a little time for ourselves on Monday
and so the menu got moved around a little.
So, instead of having spaghetti on Monday, I made it on
Tuesday night.  

Sadly, I forgot to take my pictures for the spaghetti sauce.
However, never fear!  I promise the next time I make spaghetti
sauce, I WILL make sure I take pictures.

Now on to the recipes!

Sissy's Spaghetti Sauce

1 lb pound of hamburger
1 lb Italian sausage
2 jars of spaghetti sauce with mushrooms
(Doesn't matter what brand.  I prefer the
Kroger brand personally.)
1 can tomato sauce (24oz)
1 small can tomato paste (4oz)
2 cans mushrooms (small size), drained
1 onion, diced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Oregano (~ 3 Tbsp)
Garlic powder (~ 3 Tbsp, divided)
Italian seasoning (~ 2 Tbsp)
Red pepper flakes (~ 1 tsp)
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Season salt (~ 1 tsp)

1.  Brown hamburger and sausage in large skillet/sauce pan.
Season meat with garlic, season salt and pepper while browning.
2.  Once meat is browned, drain excess fat.
3.  While meat is draining, add approximately 2 Tbsp of extra
virgin olive oil to pan and saute onions until tender.
4.  Once onions are tender, add back in meat.
5.  Pour in spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce and tomato paste.
Stir well to make sure all ingredients are combined.
6.  Add in mushrooms.  Stir.
7.  Add in seasoning.  Stir.
8.  Let simmer until sauce is heated through.

*NOTE* You can use 2lbs. of hamburger instead of a pound each of
hamburger and Italian sausage.  Also, you do not have to add red
pepper flakes if you don't like your sauce spicy.  I have made it both
ways and it tastes great without the flakes.  If you will notice, the measurements
for the seasoning is approximate.  I guess you could say I am like Rachel
Ray.  I don't really measure when making this sauce.  My taste buds are
my measuring tool --- LOL!!

Dill Pot Roast

This is a family staple.  I have been making this
recipe for YEARS!!  It is simple and just plain GOOD!

I have talked about this recipe before on this blog.

Love to you all from the
