My Week

My mom has been here visiting us for the last week. It has been really nice to have her here. Our kids have loved having grandma visit. I guess she is more exciting then me. ๐Ÿ™‚

We are going to be very busy the next couple of months. I was really glad my mom was able to help me prepare for them, by helping me freeze some meals. I did not make her work the whole time she was here, but it was nice having an extra person around to help. She did a lot of dishes and even tackled my ironing pile. So, thanks mom.

We managed to put quite a few meals in the freezer. We froze 4 pans of lasagna, 3 spaghetti pies, 2 chicken souperoles, and 6 packages of taco meat.

We also used up some of the apples that I had bought last week at the orchard. We froze lots of applesauce. And I dried some apples. This is the first time that I have dried apples and we really liked them. I think they are much better than the store bought dried apples. I think I am going to make up some more of these next week.

I am so glad to have all of these projects done. It feels really nice to have some good meals and food made up, ready to use when I have a busy day.

    would love to hear about your spaghetti pie recipe and taco meat for my cooking group. did you dry the apples in the oven b/c I don’t have a dehydrator. are you freezing your casseroles in those pyrex dishes or something else? would like to know your method. You and I have a lot in common.

  2. Jackie, I think I will answer your ?? in a seperate post on Monday. I think the answers give me a good time to talk about a few things.

  3. yes please share the spaghetti pie recipe! I have one that might be close and I also have a pizza bake that I do with pasta. they are practically the same just one has mozz cheese and pepperoni!
