Works For Me Wednesday

You have to fix a meal. What are the catch-all, quick-and-easy-dinners-that-still-manage-to-taste-decent that you keep on hand?

This is my youngest son's most favorite meal, he asks for it whenever it's his birthday. His German grandmother taught me how to cook.
This is what she would call, in her thick German accent: "Poor Man's Dinner".

Fried Spaghetti

1/2 lb. bacon

1 lb. spaghetti

1 onion


Cut bacon into small pieces, melt in a large skillet. When bacon is almost crisp, add chopped onion. Sautee until onion is tender. Add cooked spaghetti. Add salt.

That's it, done and delicious.

Guten Hunger (she would always say that too)

Anything with bacon in it has to be good.
