My son's home economics task was to prepare a sauce to pasta, rice or potatoes. Bob wanted to prepare a vegetable, ground beef and tomato sauce, which turned out to be a really tasty! I normally spice up my "bolognese sauce" with plenty of garlic, chilies, herbs and mirepoix, but my son decided to add also 2 teaspoons of smoked Spanish paprika powder. It really made a big difference favour-wise. My husband said that Bob sauce outperformed my typical bolognese sauce. 🙈🙉🙊 I take this as a compliment; after all I taught my children how to cook!!! #ISV #homeeconomics
