I narrowly avoided having a delicious driveway

Thank goodness for thick glass jars. A couple days ago I was carrying in some groceries, and one of the flimsy plastic bags split open. A jar of Prego spaghetti sauce dropped out and fell onto the driveway. The hard, paved driveway. And it made a sickening *clunk*. I thought for sure I'd see spaghetti sauce slowly spreading across the driveway, and I'd have to clean that up along with shards of broken glass. But amazingly, the jar remained intact. There wasn't even a crack in the jar. Nothing. I was pleasantly amazed. Yay for the Prego people who decided NOT to skimp on production costs. Yay for jars that are thick enough to withstand being dropped. I am thankful.
Yay for Janna, who can still almost write coherent sentences at almost 3:30 in the morning.

You should only be allowed to buy products packaged in plastic.

I am always happy when I don't need to clean up a mess.

arrrrghhhhh you use jarred Spaghetti sauce? If you HAVE to use one prego is it, but spaghetti sauce is one of the few foods I am guilty of being picky about.

Mr. Fab: It would make life less stressful...

Lynda: Amen to that!

Brilliant Donkey: Prego IS yummy. I wish I had the money and patience and motivation to cook all my meals from scratch, but alas.
