Wow, while doing other things the actual quotes from Worf popped into my head:

A warrior's strength comes from his heart.
The true test of a warrior comes from within.

I'm thinking about creating a cartoon with a swashbuckling pomegranate . . .

Yesterday at the grocery store, I was buying food for the week, and picked up stuff for pasta. Being the lazy lady I am, instead of making my own pasta sauce, I went searching for a jar. While browsing the sauces, I came upon a jar called "Sockarooni", It contained "Peppers, Spices, the whole Shebang!" I was intrigued by this bizarre sauce, so I picked it. Tonight, I'm making rotini and meatballs, using Sockarooni. I will let you know how it tastes. Also, the salad I made was delicious.

Oh yeah, I guess some people do make their own pasta sauce.  I've never considered that as an option before, so I've never thought of buying a jar as lazy.  I've even made my own pasta (some gnocchi that turned out pretty good), but I didn't think twice about making my own sauce.

Yeah even in Italy nobody makes their own pasta or sauce, except on special occasions, I generally make my own sauce but I worked in bistros and the like, there's nothing wrong with buying sauce.

My mom and her family never bought sauce.  It's only been in the last decade that I've found some brands that are acceptable....

I sometimes use a bottled sauce as a base to build my own sauce on. But overall I prefer my own. I'll brew up a large batch in my 5 quart crock pot and then portion it into freezer bags.

We used to make most of our sauces from scratch. Then, when the baby came along, we opted for convenience.

Getting much more into cooking things from scratch again though. We bought a Thermomix (weirdly not a thing in the US, but you probably have something that is somewhat similar?) and it makes cooking meals really quick and easy.

I made a lamb and mushroom curry from scratch last night.
FINE

Weird!

Maybe it was trying to shuttle you a different country's Thermomix site?

It still showed an .au url.

I'm not upset. Customer was being whiney anyway.

Hope their stuff wasn't in the Amazon warehouse near Allentown that got shut down because the roof was about to cave in.  Haven't heard if they reopened that yet after clearing the snow off the roof, the township was going to keep it closed until it got a safety inspection.
