A Wedding Favor

I haven’t been cooking very much in the past few months, mainly because we’ve been traveling.  After we returned from Hawaii, we took a road trip across the country.  This is something that my husband I really enjoy.

We had been invited to the wedding of the daughter of my DH’s long time friend’s.  The wedding was to take place outside of Toledo Ohio and I saw a perfect opportunity to also visit with some of our family members, see some sights and generally have a great time.  We made the decision to drive the 5300 mile round trip and take our time.  We were gone for 31 days and it was a blast!  I’ll tell you about the rest of the trip later, but this post is about the wedding favor that the Bride and Groom dreamed up.

Homemade Pasta Sauce

Pasta Sauce.  Ah, but not just any pasta sauce.  The Bride’s family is extensive.  Her Uncle and Aunt grew the Tomatoes.  All of the cousins, as well as Mom and Dad, pitched in and helped to make the sauce from her Grandparents’ recipe, can it and make up these gift tags that tells the recipient all about this.  But we were in the know already…

So, for our first meal back home in our own home, I made up a batch of fresh pasta, browned some Italian Sweet Sausages and added this delicious sauce.

That’s real love.
