back to work tuesday

Well its back to work today. The only problem with being at home is that your expected to make meals, no matter how tired you are. Yesterday after 2 hours of shovelling snow, and then making lunch, finishing laundry and then making muffins I was down right tired and ended up having a nap…for 2 hours. So for supper I needed something quick and simple.

This spaghetti casserole is just about as easy as you can get..


 Spaghetti Casserole

1 lb hamburger
1 clove garlic
1 tsp  italian seasoning
1 can mushroom soup
1 can tomato soup
1/2 can water

3/4 cup grated cheese
pasta of your choice

Preheat oven to 350F. Brown hamburger and rinse off the fat. Add in the garlic and italian seasoning and fry just a bit longer. Add in the soups and water.

Meanwhile cook the pasta until its still crunchy in the middle but soft enough to work with.

Mix pasta and sauce together and put into baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.

See its so simple.. and warm food on a cold day is good for you!

Long weekend suprises!

Wow I haven’t wrote for a week!

We left Friday morning for the lake with Dan’s cousins. It was definitely an interesting week with them. Dan and I were both at the end of our nerves! His cousins have such an attitude, like no body’s business. They don’t have any respect for other people or money.. and at the end of it all I had learned that they stole my ipod cord cause they “lost” theirs.. actually they left it at the lake. But whatever, we did actually have a good weekend. We went to Edmonton for a day, did some shopping… I got some pretty good deals on clothes, youth larges fit about the same as adult medium, and they are longer in length too! Bought a coffee table we ended up using as a tv stand with baskets.. It looks absolutely beautiful. I’ll get pictures up soon!

Other than that, we just laid around and left for home monday morning.. thats where the best impulse suprise buy comes in. I talked Dan into stopping at the pet store just to look.. well we looked alright, and found the cutest little most expensive puppy in the store! A $1500 (kennel, food, toys all included) pure breed pekingese pup! Ladies and gentlemen I would like to introduce you to our puppy…

I haven’t really done any cooking lately, just warming up leftovers and stuff…  I did make Banana Bread though, oh and I guess my mom’s hamburger chowder.. The hamburger chowder has been a family favorite since my brother played hockey and someone brought it to the tournament. In turn, I showed the recipe to Dan’s mom, and it is now also her familie favorite. Its just soooo good!
