I planned to make lasagna for dinner last night since there was a large container of homemade sauce with Italian sausages in the freezer that was just begging to be used. Yep, that was my plan last night and then there was a minor glitch added to my leisurely cooking plan. I was going to… Read More

I thought that there would be trouble getting my planned dinner on the table last night. The girls are home this week on spring break, so I took them out shopping for spring clothes all afternoon, and we stayed out much longer than expected, not arriving home until 5:30.

Better for the school… Read More
