Venison Sausage in Tomato Cream Sauce over Ziti
Winter storms are now being named and Luna is here in the Northeast. I left work this morning and the roads deteriorated as I drove until less than a mile from home the car in front of me did a complete 180 spin and I carefully tapped my brakes but still slid just enough to the right to avoid the oncoming vehicle. Behind the vehicle was a school bus full of children being dismissed early. Heart pounding I maintained a ridiculously slow speed until I reached my driveway which the back end of my car thought would be fun to fishtail past.
Once home, I gave the sidewalks a quick shovel, let the dog run around and then parked myself in front of the computer until I thought it a better use of time to finish reading a book a friend had lent me.
Dinner tonight was crumbled venison sausage with garlic and oregano. Once the meat was browned and drained, a marinara sauce mixed with about a cup of half and half was added to the pan. The ziti was cooked and coated lightly with just the marinara. For a moment, the thought of melted mozzarella was entertained then dropped. Safe, sound and Fed Well.
