In an effort to help preserve whatever sanity and serenity I can ... I've been crockpot cooking anything and everything. Here's lunch: pasta w.sauce! Desired amt of uncooked pasta, cover w.watered down sauce of choice.

One hour (I've eaten this same dish after 30-40 min too), on high,  ¡viola! Ready to eat pasta!  I put it together just before leaving to pick up from PreK, it's ready when we arrive.   Prep time: 30 seconds to 1 minute. Yeah!! My kinda dish!

*update: add a scoop of cottage cheese to the bowl, seems much like lasagna! Mmm!

Time flies

Well, I'm shocked it's been 9 months since my last post. Life gets busy with two toddlers, phew!

I have created many Pinteresting things, including the cinnamon-bun-pancakes that I said I would make once my husband found them and pinned it on his own Pinterest board! (He did it!)

Most recently I made a weekly menu board. Being impoverished and unable to spend $10 to make this cool menu board, I made due with what we had on hand... cardboard from a previously used box, markers, paper, clothes pins. I color coded the papers to make sense for our families needs.  It may not be the cutest, but it functions and makes my week a smidge easier. Hooray! ((Used glu stick to adhere clothes pins to the cardboard, some office clips stapled to the wall -- yes, that's right-- stapled.)) [McGuyverette here]
