Day 3 of week's challenge

Forgot to write that yesterday, I took out a package of ground beef (extra lean, yuck) to thaw.
1300 – Have to go out but need to take a headstart on dinner: pop a whole spaghetti squash in the crockpot, set on Medium.
1630 – Get home.  Spaghetti squash is just right!  Pure luck.  Chop finely one large onion and 5 garlic cloves.  Take beef fat reserved from a too-fatty beef marrow bone broth, melt in frying pan, add onions, sauté until tender, add garlic and sauté 1 minute.  Remove onion and garlic from pan, add 2 Tbs coconut oil (I’m out of beef fat) and brown the ground beef, breaking into bite-size pieces with a spatula.  Meanwhile, finely chop the beef marrow (reserved from above-mentioned broth, DH does not like in soup).  Add to the browned ground.  Add 1 cup tomato sauce (bought in glass bottles) and 1 tsp dried oregano.  Cover and simmer.  Meanwhile, drop 2 roma tomatoes in boiling water in small saucepan for 30 secs.  Peel, chop into big chunks, add to ground beef, simmer 5 more minutes until tomatoes are just tender.
1730.  Slice some of the bread made yesterday and toast twice in toaster-oven, until somewhat dry on the surface.  Let cool, then rub with a peeled garlic clove and spread with ghee – garlic bread!
1745  Open spaghetti squash by cutting a door in the side.  I serve it just like that, using a pasta spoon.  Because, I’m out of time!  Quickly put together a green salad with previously washed lettuce. 

Not a big cooking day, just got by on leftovers most of the day.  There just isn't that much time with the baby here (3 weeks old yesterday) and I'm glad I have lots of sauerkraut and pickled vegetables on hand, and have perfected making yogurt and kombucha before the baby was born!
