This morning was wonderful... After coming home from the park, the girls played by themselves for a full hour! I was able to call a few friends, make my crockpot lasagna, and clean-up the kitchen! Then Natalie was done... so, she and I played and read a few stories, then I made lunch. I then asked Allison if she wanted to join us, and she said she wanted to play in her room by herself. Hmmm... a little suspicious. I kept checking-up on her every few minutes; all was well! Until I found this...
And, for those of you interested, here is our awesome crockpot lasagna recipe. It is yummy!
1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic gloves, minced
1 can (29 oz)tomato sauce
1 cp water
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1 package (8oz) no-cook lasagna noodles
4 cps (16 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cps (12 oz) small-curd cottage cheese
1/2 cp grated Parmesan cheese
In a skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over med. heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomato sauce, water, tomato paste, salt and oregano; mix well. Spread a fourth of the meat sauce in an ungreased 5-qt slow cooker. Arrange a third of the noodles over sauce (break the noodles if necessary). Combine the cheeses; spoon a third of the mixture over noodles. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining meat sauce. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until noodles are tender. Yield: 6-8 servings.
