Nuff Said

A Moment of Sadness

While scrolling down my sidebar to check out Dollar Store Crafts and craigslist, something caught my eye.  A number that was different today than yesterday.  I lost a follower.  Seeing that made my stomach hurt a little bit.  It's like having a friend start ignoring you and then fade away, and you never know what went wrong.  Ahh, well, I shan't take it personally--after all, I've stopped following blogs myself, for various reasons.  Sometimes they just don't turn out to be what I thought they were and don't suit my interests.  Maybe that's the case here.  Regardless, I won't dwell on it.  After all, tis the season to be JOLLY, right!

Oops, I Did It Again!

Mea maxima culpa!  Last Saturday was my daughter Holly's birthday--and I didn't post about it!  Sorry, Holly!  Of course, she may have preferred me to stay quiet.  Considering she turned the big 3-0!!!

Happy late birthday, Holly!
Love ya!!

Obviously no one liked my Spongebob Christmas song.   Maybe this will suit you better.

Slow-Cooker Lasagna

I haven't posted a recipe in a while, but this one I just had to share!  I found it at they have scads of others you might want to try.

Slow-Cooker Lasagna

1 lb ground beef                          
1 jar (26 oz) spaghetti sauce
1 cup water                                 
1 container (15 oz) ricotta cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese             
1 pkg (7 oz) shredded mozzarella
1 egg                                          
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
6 lasagna noodles, uncooked

Brown meat in large skillet and drain.  Stir in spaghetti sauce and water.  In separate bowl, mix ricotta cheese, 1 1/2 cups mozzarella, and 2 tbsp Parmesan, egg and parsley.

Spoon 1 cup meat mixture into crock pot.  Top with layers of half each of the noodles, broken to fit; then cheese mixture.  Cover with 2 cups meat sauce, then remaining noodles, then cheese mix.  Top with meat sauce.  Cover with lid.

Cook on LOW 4-6 hours or till liquid is absorbed.  Sprinkle with remaining cheeses; let stand, covered, 10 minutes or till melted.

For best results, do not cook on HIGH!

For lower fat options, use lean ground beef, skim ricotta, and reduced fat Parmesan.

Serves 8

What I Wish I Could Say

Stumbled onto a wonderful blog tonight and wanted to share a post I wish I'd written.  Hope you'll read it and file it away for future reference.  I know I will.

ETA:  When I posted this last night, I had no idea I'd have need of it so soon.  A long lost friend from high school just contacted me via Facebook to let me know her only daughter had passed away last week.  She said she just needed to talk to someone who would understand--and unfortunately I do.
