Back to our Routine…


  • Easy sauce (recipe below), divided in half
  • 10 oz. lasagna noodles
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 2 T. parsley
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 16 oz. mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced, divided in half
  • 8×8 foil pan

Mix egg, ricotta, Parmesan, parsley, salt, and pepper. Divide in half. In each 8×8 pan, place 3 T. sauce and 3 T. water. For each pan, use half of the mixture in the following way:

Top water and sauce with a layer of uncooked lasagna noodles, half of ricotta mixture, 1/3 of mozzarella cheese, and half of sauce. Repeat layers and top with the last 1/3 of mozzarella cheese. Bake one pan at 375° for 30 minutes or until bubbly and freeze the other.

Easy Sauce

  • 1 28 oz. can spaghetti sauce, flavor of your choice
  • 1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1 lb. browned ground beef, from freezer

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, then divide in half to use with each pan of lasagna.

Actually the evening has been going pretty well.   The routine goes better when hubby isn’t home.   We keep the TV off and get our things done.  It is too hard for Erik to concentrate on homework when he hears the TV, etc.   I did tell Tommy and Erik they could watch a movie at 8:00.   Erik had to complete his homework to earn this.  He lied about a number of homework items and hid some of it and lost his movie priveldges for the night.  But on the good side, Erik didn’t argue about homework and wasn’t disrespectful at all, just tried to pull a few tricks to get out of homework.   Hubby will be finishing homework with him when he gets home and Tommy and I will watch the movie.  

I will leave you with a few pics I took this evening….I decided I don’t take enough everyday life pics of my kids…..

DARN….won’t let me uplaod pics….I guess I will have to share them tomorrow. 

I also have to share the pictorial by my 4 year old.   It is very funny to try and guess what he took a picture of.   What fun!!  Let your kids loose with a camera!  Some made me laugh.    I will share tomorrow…actually he is busy taking more pictures as I type.  

Hubby called and said he is on his way home.   Funny he said that three hours ago too when he called.  Yes, the man does get sidetracked a bit. 

Off to bed to watch a movie with Tommy.  Have a great night!
