I got a lot to say, I got a lot to say, I got a lot to say. I can't remember now, I can't remember now, I can't remember now. - Ramones

Today marks my 101 post! I really can’t believe it. 

When I first started I didn’t tell anyone. I just wrote... kinda like a journal.

Now... I still look at it that way. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it is boring, sometimes I am sad, and sometimes I’m pissed off LOL.

Sometimes I have crafts, recipes, tips, cleaning dilemmas, parenting disasters, romance, successes, milestones, memories… it is all here. My children can look back someday and see our day-to-day lives, from my perspective lol

Thanks for reading, I hope that it gets even better in the new year!

Beef  "Parmesan" Pasta

1.5 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, pressed
½ green pepper, diced
1 small can tomato sauce
1 jar pasta sauce * I used Tomato Basil*
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
½ cup grated Mozza cheese
½ teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 can corn, drained
½ cup butter, divided
¼ cup chives, chopped
¼ cup flour
2 cups milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 (16 ounce) package bowtie pasta, cooked and drained.

In a pan, cook beef, garlic and onion until meat is browned; drain.

Put back into the pan and add green pepper and corn.

Stir in tomato sauce, pasta sauce, 1/4 cup Mozza cheese, allspice, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.

Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.

In a saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter.

Stir in flour until smooth then add nutmeg.

Gradually add milk; bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.

Stir in 1/4 cup Parm cheese.

Remove from heat.

Add eggs; whisk until smooth.

In a bowl, combine pasta and 1/4 cup Mozza cheese and chives.

Melt remaining butter; add to pasta and toss to coat.

Spread 1/3 of meat mixture in a greased 13×9 inch casserole dish.

Layer with half of the pasta, 1/3 of meat mixture, and half of the white sauce; repeat.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until thoroughly heated and bubbly.
