menu plan monday ~ august 25, 2008

We’re home after a short trip north. Saturday afternoon DH took DD to a water park while I enjoyed several hours in a book store.

fun to float

Sunday we worshiped with my sister at her church, then spent the afternoon at her house. DD had a good time with her first cousin once removed, Tshepo. He and his mom (my niece) will be traveling to South Africa later this week to join his dad, where they will serve as missionaries for the next five years.

On the way home this evening, I took some pictures out the car window of the beautiful, long lasting sunset. I especially like this picture.

Crock Pot Lasagna
You will need the following four items to make the lasagna:

Meat Mixture
Mix together:
1 pound ground round, browned (with a diced onion if you wish)

3-4 c. spaghetti sauce of your choice

8 lasagna noodles, dry and broken into pieces

Cheese Mixture
Mix together:
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 c. ricotta cheese
3 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
3 eggs

1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Spray a crock pot with cooking spray. Place enough spaghetti sauce on the bottom to cover the pan. Layer 1/3 of the noodles, then 1/3 cheese mixture, and then 1/3 of the remaining sauce. Repeat with two more layers. Top with 1 c. mozzarella cheese.

Cook on high for three to four hours or on low for 6-8.
