Onions. Garlic. Cans of Tomatoes.

Last night, I made a huge pot of tomato sauce and invited over Susan and Chris. It's great having single friends, because they are so appreciative of your cooking. Pasta sauce is one of the easiest things you can make. I think it was the first things I learned to cook. Onions. Garlic. Cans of Tomatoes. And anything else you can find. But the friends made lots of yummy sounds and said that it was better than the box of raisins and donuts that they were planning on eating.

After dinner we sat on the blue sofa drinking wine and martinis and surfing the TV. One of most amusing things we fell upon was Gary Coleman on the Fox News station. He was so out of his league that it was painful to watch. At one point, Coleman said to Hannity, "You're giving me hard time, just because I didn't know who the hell Dick Chaney was."

We also shared more war stories that we had picked up from others during the day. Bob ran home all the way from his art studio in Jersey City, which has to be about 14 miles, because he was so worried about picking up his daughter from daycare. Annie, who is very pregnant, finally got a cab ride. And I wasn't the only one who was having 9/11 flashbacks.

Susan did okay on her walk home, because she kept spare sneakers, money, a flashlight, and other supplies at work. Last time she had to walk home in heels. Both Susan and Chris have a "Go Bag,"which is a backpack of essential items that they can take with them if someone unleashes a briefcase nuke in Times Squre.

OK, I'm gone until Monday.

Remember don't buy any meat from the supermarket for a week.
