  1. Ah mandy, the ok mum of us all. At least you are putting meat in the bolognese. My daughter has been served, by a dad I might add, tomato sauce on spaghetti and it was called bolognese.

  2. Hey we love spag bol. My mum cooked roasts for my dad so I was a teenager before I ate spag bol at an aunts place and its definitely a favourite in our house. But I agree that cooking dinner every night is shit, specially compared with sbs cooking shows. Delegating two nights a week cooking to the teenagers, but I still ask what they want, do the shopping and clean up after! They will appreciate me when it’s their turn.
