Keepin it Real

Even though today is a Saturday, I feel like I have actually accomplished something on my day off. Lets recap, shall we?

-Went to the grocery store

-Vacuumed the Rug

-Heartgard-ed & Frontline-d little Mauve

-Ran 3.81 miles

-Cooked & baked until the sink was full to capacity...

Yes folks, we all know what this picture means....

Hello Love. I've missed you.

And there's a lot more where those came from. Half of the batch will head with me to church in the morning and feed a bunch of high school girls (and maybe the boys if we have leftovers!).

But that's not all!

I also made a pot of spaghetti sauce! I love this recipe- it's my mom's and it always reminds me of my childhood. It's kind of an all day undertaking, not that it's difficult, it just takes time. My perfect spaghetti dinner? A lot of noodles, a handful of grated mozzarella and sauce on top!

And I've got frugal covered also! See, here's the way things usually run after spaghetti night: I freeze the leftover sauce and later use it to make a pan (9x9) of lasagna. The only problem was that Jordan and I couldnt ever finish the pan and we dont do leftovers. So I recently took a Kohl's gift card I had lying around and invested in 2 smaller 4x7ish size pans- perfect size for 2 servings!

So after dinner, I made 2 pans of lasagna with the leftover sauce and these babies are now hanging out in our freezer (flanked by a few pans of fresh cinnies), waiting for the perfect evening!

Dont you love productive days??

You've inspired me. Feeling like the upcoming week might be a productive one for me. Here's to hoping!

Do you use the Pioneer Woman cinnamon roll recipe? I feel like it makes 1 million of them!

Thanks for your comment! I ♥ L&D nurses! :)

I have cinnamon roll dough in my breadmaker right this minute! It's a good thing I do because I don't think I could handle looking at these pictures without the promise of my own cinnamon goodness soon :)

My husband goes to Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY. That's where he did his MDiv, too. If your hubby has any questions for him about the DMin program there, let me know!
