Beau's notes:

* This sauce is patterned after that of a Syro-American restaurateur of Ocala whose restaurant, The Blue Bird, no longer exists. However, the spaghetti sauce recipe, one Mama (after trying at first more or less to duplicate the Blue Bird's) refined, is immortal. Because of the vegetables used in it, the family tradition has been to make a meal of spaghetti with the sauce alone. The basic sauce is useful also for lasagna and other pasta dishes.

* Mom uses juices from beef roasted with sherry and "gunk" for beef stock.

* The family is still boycotting Hunt's anything!
