Mothers Day- Lasagna Roll Ups

Yum- the finished product (the plain ones on the end are Elijah’s) 🙂

I hope all you amazing Mom’s out there were able to have an enjoyable and relaxing Mother’s Day yesterday. I went over to my parents house and cooked my mom lunch/dinner. It was nice and relaxing day. We went to church, then I exercised with my little sister (that was my present to myself), then I spent the rest of the day at my parents house. I made lasagna roll ups, garlic bread (and by made I mean opened the bag, separated the two halves and put it in the oven), and my seester brought salad stuff. Oh, and we made a cake for her too- that was at Elijah’s request.

Here’s how we made the lasagna Roll-Ups:

10 Lasagna noodles, cooked
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
Jar of spaghetti sauce (I used Mid’s- half meat flavor, half regular)
Shredded Mozzarella cheese

I made these very plain- the original recipe that I saw looked good, but I was feeding a few picky eaters (my mom, Elijah and myself).

To see the rest of our Mother’s Day lunch, how we made the roll-ups, and our day, please visit my new blog site here.


Just. Another. Reminder.


So I’ve posted a few updates on my other blog, which you can find here. Here’s a short recap:

This weekend I made the bomb of chicken enchiladas. Look how yummy they look:

Walking the field pre-game

After the amazing lunch we had, we went to an Aero’s game for youth baseball (our semi-pro team). Not only did Elijah get to walk the field, but he also got the most exciting of souvenirs, right from a player himself! 🙂 It was his best day ever!!

Make sure you head on over to my new blog to read all about it! 🙂


Happy 100th Post!


I can’t believe that I have published 100 posts! And that people are still reading what I have to say… amazing! Woo-hoo!

What I really wanted to write about was Elijah’s new basketball hoop. I know, super exciting material, right? Try to keep your excitement down just a bit, mmkay? Elijah has been obsessed with basketball since he played last Fall. He asks me almost everyday if he can go across the street to my neighbors hoop and shoot. Seriously- every. day. Well, this Tuesday after school Elijah asked if he could go to my mom’s house when he got home from school (he’s a little bit in love with his gramma). Went I went over to pick him up later my dad said that he was going to give Elijah the old broken, hoop they had in his driveway. He had fixed it (yay!) and was going to bring it over to our house that night.

What’s in a name?


The other day I took Elijah to get his haircut. There was only one person there working, and we had about 3 people in front of us. In total we waited about an hour and fifteen minutes, which was the longest I had ever waited. If his hair wasn’t totally out of control and that wasn’t the only day we could do it, I would have left. But look how handsome he looks now:

Always a silly grin…

So anyways while we were waiting, a mother and her son came in. For the first 20 minutes or so, they were quiet, much like everyone else there. And then the waiting got to them I guess. At first they were talking in hushed tones. Then they got louder. First the kid was talking and making all sorts of weird statements, that I wish I could remember. Basically I’m lucky to remember what I had for dinner last night, and this portion of their conversation was not the part that stuck with me. First she told him to just stop talking to her….
