If there was ever a day to book plane tickets to Miami, today was it

The weather cooled, wind was blowing down the street rustling the leaves (and litter – the obvious sign that we moved out of the center of Philadelphia tourism!), and my kids were wearing warm coats and hats.

If there was ever a day for bolognese, today was it

Heat 1/4 cup olive oil over medium-high heat

Once hot, add 1 medium onion, coarsely diced & 4 cloves garlic, minced

Lower heat to medium and cook until the onions are tender, about 8 minutes

Add 4 carrots, peeled and medium-diced & 2 celery stalks, diced

Cook 5 minutes

Increase heat to high and add 1 pound ground chuck

Cook until no longer pink, about 8 minutes, breaking up any large chunks

Add 1 28-oz can diced tomatoes

Season with 2 teaspoons basil (dried), salt & pepper to taste

Lower heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened, about 30 minutes

* Give your super-cute cooking partner a kiss *

Serve over pasta and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese
