To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

Having just returned from vacation, the Cinderella chores face you head on!
Unpacking, laundry, cleaning....and making dinner with what's on hand
prior to the weekend grocery trip!
No problem darling......the bases are covered!
lb. of Ground Beef
2 jars of Spaghetti Sauce
8 oz of Cream Cheese
1/4 cup of Sour Cream
1/2 lb. of Ricotta Cheese
Whole Stick of Butter
Spaghetti Pasta........about 16 ounces
Bag of Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Preheat oven to 350º. Boil the
noodles and while they are boiling, mix up the cream cheese, sour cream and
ricotta cheese!! Make sure that it is mixed up VERY well! Then brown the meat. Drain any excess fat!
Pour your spaghetti sauce over the ground beef! Take a few slices of your butter and
put them in the bottom of your casserole dish, then layer HALF of the pasta
in the bottom of the dish! Pour that nicely mixed up creamy mixture on top of
the noodles. and SPREAD it all over! Then add the rest of your pasta and put
a few slices of butter on top of those noodles. Now pour the red sauce and meat
on top! Once again SPREAD. Now place that awesome casserole in your oven for 30
minutes! After those 30 minutes take the dish out and pour some cheddar cheese
on the top and put it back in the oven for 15 minutes! YUM-OH!!!!
