Yummy food...

I made the best dinner last night, and even the leftovers tonight were good! I made baked spaghetti...

First, mix cooked spag noodles with a few tablespoons of olive oil, 2 beaten eggs and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese and set aside. Then cook ground sausage or beef and saute some onions, salt, peper, and add a jar of spag sauce. Layer 1/2 the noodles, then half the meat and sauce mixture, then a layer of cottage cheese (I added salt and pepper here too), and repeat. Top with more parm and cheddar cheese, then pour 1/2 cup water over the whole thing and bake at 375 until bubbly, about 30-45 minutes. It was DELISH!

Then I decided to make homemade hummus. My step mom made some a few weeks ago and I tried it and it was so good! I have always stayed away from it because I didn't know what it was, but I like it! LOL :)

Add 2 cans garbanzo beans and about 1/2 the juice, 2 T lemon juice, 1 T EVOO, 2 cloves garlic, and 1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste, I found it at Trader Joe's) all in a food processor and blend. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

Ok I am not even hungry but I want to go get my bowl out of the fridge and some crackers!!!

New pics from my new toy!

I got a camera yesterday, here's some random shots ones out of the 800 I have taken since yesterday morning!

Look at those blue eyes :)




I went to work to get my hair done and took a few shots...


...and my picture taken lol.


They were fascinated by the red light on the front!


"I'm almost four!"


"My finger is thirsty, Momma!"



Happy Birthday to me!!

I got a couple of fun new things! I got a great new stamp set from my LSS

and a new camera!! Well this was a combined birthday/Mother's Day present to myself LOL

Know what else I got?? Woke up EARLY! My son lost his TV priviledges yesterday afternoon for today, so this morning when he woke up at 6 AM he pestered me about every 10 minutes asking to watch TV LOL. Then my daughter woke up at 6:30 when I have had to go in and wake her the last 3 days at 10 AM. My husband has been gone to work since 4:30 AM but he did say Happy Birthday before he left! Not much is going on today, just a regular Tuesday, work, school, etc.
We are going out to dinner with my parents on Saturday though to the Outback, my favorite restaurant!

Got some scrapping done...! I went to a retreat in March and had some page kits and pictures all ready to go left over from that, so it was nice and easy. But now my craft area looks like a bomb went off in there LOL!


And here's my LO's... I took a drive to visit my friend Mallory this last Sept for a long weekend of scrap shopping!

Happy Mother's Day me. In search of a few quiet moments, my husband was sweet enough to take Aaron outside. He of course didn't want to and after listening to him wail for half and hour, he came inside and had a major meltdown. So this is where he is now...


...and now it is quiet!

It's funny how just because it is a certain day you think MAYBE, just maybe, that they will behave and be good all day just for you. Why is that????

Photo shoot

I had a mini photo shoot this morning with my son Aaron. It is so sunny today and for the first time it is warm enough for a coat-free day! We went in the front yard and snapped a few pics.

Lake Padden yesterday...

I took so many pictures on our way around the lake, TWICE! Each loop around is 2.6 miles so we did a little over 5 miles last night. I woke up in the middle of the night a little sore, but not much this morning, so that's good! My friend Kim, who is our team captain, and her two daughters went with me last night. Our other friend and team member, Dyona, hurt her back about 2 weeks ago so she is not walking with us right now, though hopefully soon!

Here are some BEAUTIFUL pics from the lake... (it's a slideshow)
