It's just perfect for appetizers, sandwiches and desserts!
Then I found this beautiful tea cup, I had to have!
I was happy with my finds, but my heart is still searching for that perfect tea set! ;-)
So this morning I called Kathleen into the kitchen to eat.... This is how she arrived at the table....
Apparently she was cold this morning! LOL
Then we were off to the grocery store to get all the items I needed for my meal plans this week.
After coming home and getting all that organized, I decided to organize the girls learning area downstairs. We had a lot of this in a desk area in our kitchen but it was getting a bit unruly! LOL So I decided to carry it all down and rearrange everything. Can't believe I'm sharing the before pictures, it doesn't usually look this bad!
Here's the before..... (be still my heart! ;-) )
Yikes! I really can't believe I'm posting this... for those of you that know me personally I never let anyone see my house like this. I like things very neat and tidy.
So here is the after.....
Whew, that's much better I was about to have a panic attack! LOL Actually there are still a few more tweaks on things I need to make. This area was one of the reasons we bought our house. It actually extends around the other side, and has a bar area. Of course we don't use it for that, it's storage for the kids things.
I was really laughing when Hayley came downstairs like this, I think the hard work got to Hayley because she looked like this midway through! One day she is not going to think this was such a funny picture to post.
So as it was getting into evening hours, I managed to complete my dinner as well!
Sharing the recipe, this is super yummy and easy. The girls loved it!
1 lb ground beef, browned ( I use ground turkey and add just a little water to it to keep it from getting too dry while cooking it)
Garlic salt and pepper to taste
16 oz jar spaghetti sauce ( or homemade equivalent)
2 8 oz cans crescent rolls
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Colby cheese
First season the meat with garlic and pepper to taste; then brown it
Add spaghetti sauce and simmer at least 5 minutes
Meanwhile layer one can of crescent rolls in the bottom of a greased 13 x 9 inch pan. Be sure to spread roll to edge of pan.
Pour spaghetti mixture over the rolls
Layer cheeses on top.
Spread remaining crescent rolls over the top.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and bake 15 mins more. Makes about 12 servings.
Nothing spectacular in looks, but it tastes yummy! This is great served with a salad!
Just a few more pictures today of Longwood gardens to share.
I just thought this was a pretty display.
These several shots are actually trees that have been shaped and growing for years! I just loved them.
Aren't they so neat?
My two beauties!
