And there was no fire :-) I couldn't figure out why the house still smelled so good...until I went into the kitchen and saw the now-carmelized sauce. <sigh>
My husband knows exactly how long it takes me to make different meals because we both work from home :-) And while I do most of the intricate stuff, he makes the mashed potatoes :-)
BTW, dinner tonight was grilled ham and cheese (Muenster for me, mozzarella for the boy, and horseradish cheddar for the hubby). We had a swim meet (we won!) and didn't get home until 8 (after leaving at 4). Tomorrow is burritos (with the homemade taco seasoning).
