Busy, busy, busy.
Christmas, is just around the corner, so I'm finally making a start on the preparations.

MGG (My Greek God) was down in the basement, hunting out the Christmas treasures, while I sorted out things inside.

The tree is now up but apart from the lights and ribbon, it is bare, waiting for tomorrow,when the big trimming spree is occurring.

Our little Granddaughter, Melina (2.5 yrs) is coming to do it, I shall be helping!!!!

I suspect it may take a long time!

I have done all the other Christmas things, but have strict instructions, not to start on the tree without her.

I needed something quick for lunch, quick but warm, filling and tasty, as the weather is wet and cold!

I decided on spaghetti with Greek country sausage sauce.

Most spaghetti sauces are quick to make, any pasta can be used, but the spaghetti number ten, takes only seven minutes cooking time.

No herbs or spices are needed for this sauce, the sausage is spicy enough.

Bring a large pan of water to the boil , add a teaspoon of salt, and put in the spaghetti.
Boil for the recommended time.

Tip: A small amount of olive oil, added to the boiling spaghetti, will prevent it boiling over.

When the spaghetti is cooked, drain well, and return to the pan.

Pour in the sausage sauce and mix it all up really well
