I love my Crock-Pot and for a long time now I was trying to make the perfect slow cooker pasta meat sauce. I really love a good pasta sauce, with lots of flavor and lots of meat. You don’t need lots of herbs, just use good canned tomatoes and let the sauce simmer for a long time.
Even though I’m at home all the time, I love

Talking about food makes hungry right? Well, my friends know that I can talk about food constantly, whole day every day, so that is exactly what I love to do! Yeah d’oh, what do you think? Why did I start this blog in the first place? 😉
Last weekend it happened again, a long talk about food. About Indonesian food this time, the friends that we were travelling from SF to LA with grew up with lots of Indonesian food, something I can really be jealous about! I can’t wait until we will be invited over for dinner (this is not a hint. Or maybe it is…).

The sentence that goes through my head right now is: ‘if a burger with strawberries is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. ”
A terrible cliche but so tremendously true.
Because my oh my… this burger with strawberries is só tasty, even though it sounds like a crazy combination.

Today is a very special “Food Truck Friday” because I have to admit that the inspiration for this recipe didn’t came from a food truck. But when you think about Food Trucks you also think about street food, right? And a night market is also all about street food! Because a while ago, I discovered something new (to me) in LA: the Night Market!
A Night Market is an Asian market with food stalls, music performances and some vendors selling goodies. But those last two didn’t gain my attention, because all I needed was the food!

This recipe is a winner. You will make friends with it.
This recipe is one of my grandma’s recipes to start with.
My grandma is 81 years old and she is a tough cookie. She lives with my 82-years old grandpa in an apartment building with really nice neighbors. They like living there and that makes me happy.
At their birthday parties in the Summer we sit on the balcony. But the balcony is small so we expand easily to the corridor.
The neighbors don’t mind 🙂

Always make sure to have some portions of this pasta sauce in the freezer. It can save lives.
Because it’s the best pasta sauce in the world, believe me!
This pasta sauce recipe is an easier version of the classic Italian bolognese sauce, which includes carrots and celery.
Once in a while I’m craving real tomato sauce but the storebought pasta sauces were always so dissapointing to me 🙁
I’m not really into the real Dutch cooking. We call it the ‘Hollandse pot’ and it includes all the old fashioned Dutch cooking like stamppot (potatoes and vegetables mashed together) and cooked potatoes, vegetables and meat. Not really exciting and new.
But a ‘couple’ of years ago there was a Dutch colony in Indonesia.
