We are finally seeing some progress in our garden! Can't wait to start enjoying all the yummy goodness.
I found this little cutie in the garden too! :-) She is so excited about all the things we have growing in there.
I was happy to see my lily finally blooming in my pond. They are one of my favorite flowers!
We had a heavy rain shower pass through today and Hayley wrapped Owen up in a Princess towel! LOL
He's not spoiled at all!
We started working on the ground to put up the little pool for the girls. Jerry was using a grade tamper to smooth the ground and level out the sharp rocks etc. He then decided to teach the girls how to do it.
Kathleen was also using the hammer and hammering in some stakes. She wanted to be a big helper for Daddy.
Turkey and Spinach Lasagna Rolls
6 dry lasagna noodles
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 pound uncooked turkey breast
1 medium onion chopped
1 yellow bell pepper seeded and finely chopped
16 oz marinara sauce, refrigerated, fresh
1/3 cup water
1 cup fat free ricotta cheese
5 oz frozen chopped spinach thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup basil, fresh, chopped
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan
1 large egg, lightly beaten

1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse noodles and lay them flat on wax paper.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add turkey,onion and bell pepper and cook. Stirring frequently until all pan juices evaporates and the turkey browns, about 10 mins. Stir in the marinara sauce and water, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened and the flavors blend, about 5 mins.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Meanwhile combine the ricotta, spinach, basil,Parmesan,egg and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Spread ricotta mixture over the length of each noodle and roll.

I started a new exercise program this week from Beach body called Chalean Extreme. Well I'm certainly feeling the effects of the workout today! I started on Monday and it feels good to be lifting weights again! It's time to start making some changes for Mommy for a change. For so long I've been putting everyone and everything else first. But I am realizing if I'm not healthy and at my best....how can I expect to be there for those I love? I'm looking forward to this new journey in my life and I'll be sharing with you as I go along!
Have a great evening!
