A Wonderful Weekend…

Hi everyone!  So I’ve been giving this blogging thing some thought, and I’ve decided to give it another go.  No more talk about hyperplasia and being sick.  Only good stuff.  Family.  Friends.  Recipes.  Knitting.  Laughter.  Joy.  You know, life!  I can’t promise to be faithful and to write every day, but I can promise to give it (another) try and to see how it all works.  Hope that you’ll continue to read and enjoy the things I share.

This is a pretty big weekend for our family.  My beautiful daughter turns 11 (!!!!) on Tuesday of next week, and our family traditionally has a big family to-do for several days beginning the weekend before her special day.  My amazing parents are here from Indianapolis, and I have taken the next several days off work to relax and enjoy the festivities with the people I love the most.  Today was a quiet day.  A little shopping, a little chocolate birthday cake making (woo hoo!), and treat-bag stuffing in advance of my sweet girl’s big birthday party tomorrow.  Having my parents here has been wonderful, and I am so looking forward to spending the next several days with them.  Since Mom always cooks for us when we come home, I thought I’d return the favor and make dinner for her and Daddy tonight!  Yummy lasagna and Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.  :)

I’ll share the recipe (for the lasagna, not the Crescent Rolls – ha!) below.  I’ll also blog tomorrow night and share photos and the story of Erin’s big birthday celebration,  Stay tuned! :)

OK…now the recipe for the lasagna!  It comes from my dear friend Amy Rogers, who has a fledgling recipes blog of her own.  Stop by and check it out and make some of her recipes.  Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

Amy’s Awesome Lasagna

1 box of oven ready lasagna noodles
1 pound of ground beef
1 large can of tomato sauce (use this can first)
1 or 2 medium cans of tomato sauce (open as necessary, but I usually use both!)
1/2 of a medium yellow onion, finely chopped (we’re not big onion people, so I usually skip this ingredient)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 teaspoon of garlic powder (or 3 cloves of finely chopped fresh garlic)
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
5 cups of shredded mozarella cheese

Brown the ground beef with the salt, pepper, onion, and garlic until the beef is cooked through.

Mix the cheeses together in a big bowl.  Feel free to add more cheese than the recipe calls for.  :)

In a 9″-by-12″ baking dish, spoon a thin layer of tomato sauce on the bottom of the dish and place one layer of noodles on top.  Then spoon 1/3 of the ground beef on top of the noodles.  Spoon or pour tomato sauce on this layer until the noodles and the meat are covered.  Then take a handful of cheese and place it on top of the beef/noodles/tomato sauce mixture.  Pour a little more tomato sauce over the cheese. Repeat these layers two more times so you have three total layers of beef and cheese. For final layer (on top of the third layer of beef), place the noodles and then cover completely with tomato sauce.  Place the remaining cheese on top.  Refrigerate overnight, then bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes (or until done) at 350 degrees with a foil tent on top.  With ten minutes left, remove the foil so the cheese can melt on top.
