E: Hey Food Geek, it' me, Exhaustion!
me: Hello old friend, how are ya?
E: Meh, not bad. Better than you, judging by those bags under your eyes.
me: Shut it.
E: Aww, now c'mon. Don't be like that. Make it easy for yourself, just go grab some McD's and call it a night.
me: Now that's just WRONG!
E: You know you want it.
me: Whatever. You forgot about my mad skills.
me: Homemade meatballs, in the freezer, just WAITING for the day you come knocking. Add a little spaghetti, some Prego...
E: HA HA, SLACKER!!!! The Food Geek is using JARRED sauce???
me: It's easy, and it's my favorite.
E: Stupid American, Italians over the world are weeping.
me: Yeah, well, when they can make a sauerbraten like me, we'll talk.
me: AS I WAS SAYING...add a little Prego (Garlic and Herb flavor, if you please), crack open a bottle of red wine, and dinner is ready 15 minutes after walking in the door.
me: Yeah, suck it up.
Moral of the story...use a weekend you're NOT exhausted to make a HUGE batch of homemade meatballs that you can toss in some sauce anytime.
Dinner is served.
