Spaghetti Season

I recently posted a photo of one of my spaghetti meals and mentioned that it was still spaghetti season. Yes there is a season for spaghetti. Spaghetti season ends on the first day of summer and begins on the first day of fall. To me it is a cool weather comfort meal. In the summer for the most part I BBQ. I know that some of you eat spaghetti out of season but you really shouldn't. You wait all summer and then on that first day of's spaghetti time. Trust me it will make you love spaghetti even more. Here is one last photo of last night's meal and the recipe I use. I know it is not conventional but it is terrific and I am The Arrogant Chef.

Spaghetti Meat Sauce
4 tablespoons of salad oil
2 lbs of beef
2 large onions chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 cup of celery chopped
1 large green pepper diced
1 tablespoon of salt
2 6oz. Cans of tomato paste
½ can of V8 juice (need to adjust to get the right sauce consistency just make sure the sauce is not to runny)
3 tsp chilli powder (or more to taste)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (or more to taste)
1/2tsp curry powder (or more to taste)

Brown beef in large pan; add onions garlic, celery, pepper and salt. Simmer 3-5 minutes. Combine tomato paste and juice chilli powder, cayenne, curry. Add to meat and vegetables. Simmer gently for 1-2 hours.
