Writing 365 – Leftovers

I am going to try to make most of these stories into drabbles, which means they will be around 100 words. I don’t know if that’ll make them easier or harder, but I guess we’ll see!

Today’s prompt comes from my friend Arlette H. She gave me the word “Saucy” to go with. I know she probably meant the traditional meanings of the word, but my mind immediately goes to food. So… that’s where I’m taking this prompt.

Leftovers

Roasted garlic and tomatoes, red onion, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper pulse in the food processor with a spicy red wine. Everything is poured into a pot and simmers for thirty minutes, stirred occasionally. Once cooked, a bowl of sauce is set aside.

They eat the spaghetti al dente, each noodle perfectly coated in flavor. After dinner, the leftover sauce is placed on a small side table beside a loaf of ciabatta bread, mozzarella cheese, and the leftover wine. The family goes to bed, hoping the house Brownie doesn’t get too tipsy while cleaning up the dinner dishes.

End

I just love the idea of a super classy, Italian Brownie getting an incredible meal for making the house look lovely after a messy dinner. Le sigh. I miss Italy.

See you tomorrow!
