Today was another beautiful day.  

Spring has sprung indeed.   I found these pretty spring pictures and thought I’d share them with you.

David was working in his raised beds today, getting them ready to start planting and found a nice surprise.

He was pulling out grass, weeds and such.  He noticed two carrot tops, wondering how he still had carrot tops… so he pulled them out and this is what he found.

They must have grown through the winter, we have had a mild enough winter for them to do so, but these are the biggest carrots I’ve ever seen.

I asked my daughter to pick out something for me to make for the weekly recipe and she chose Lasagna. 🙂
Easy Lasagna

3 cups ricotta cheese
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 eggs
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound your favorite sausage
1 (48 oz) jar/can of your choice Traditional Italian pasta sauce
12 cooked lasagna noodles, well drained
1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Heat oven to 400° F
  • Mix ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese and eggs together.
  • Cook beef and sausage in saucepan until browned.  Drain off any fat.  Stir in the pasta sauce.
  • In a 9×13 baking dish, spread 2 cups of meat/sauce mixture, top with 4 lasagna noodles, add 2 cups of ricotta cheese mixture on top of noodles.
  • Repeat layers until all ingredients are used up or until pan if full, ending with ricotta cheese mixture.
  • Add shredded Parmesan cheese on top.
  • Place in oven and cook for 30 minutes.  You may want to put a baking sheet on a lower rack, in case the lasagna bubbles over.
  • Let lasagna stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Singing birds flutter by,
Playing in the sunshine.
Rain has washed everything fresh,
Instantly making the colors bright.
New life springs ahead,
Glad it’s Spring, and winter is put to bed.
Have a great Sunday!
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
