The hours at work have been crazy and I am making an effort to publish at least YouTube video per week. So not a lot of time left over.

A simple meal of pasta with sauce from the freezer.

Chili cheese dogs. I bought a cabbage recent and can't remember Why. It wasn't on the grocery list, and I must have thought of something while shopping and immediately forgot what. Well, good thing I like cole slaw.
Baking a small serving of tater tots for chili drips. For later, a slice of chocolate cake I inherited yesterday.

So I'm giving these oven ready lasagna noodles a shot and making a 1 pot lasagna, we'll see how it goes infact it should be done here in the next 2-3 minutes or so.

You posted those recipes in the soup forum, or somewhere else? How about links please.

Boy, did this afternoon's dinner hit the spot. I had the other half of the last jalapeno cheddar corn muffin from NYD dinner with it. Saved it from breakfast this morning.

Update - the only thing we didn't have leftovers of is the brussel sprouts. SIL devoured them. Toss in EVOO, S & P (fairly heavy), roast at 400 F for 35 minutes, tossing occasionally. He left the steak, but not the sprouts.

We had pasta with meat sauce. It was a jar of organic roasted garlic and herbs sauce to which Stirling added fried, ground beef, onions, and garlic. It was quite good.

Made a Crock Pot pot roast with carrots, potatoes and a vidalia onion. used beef stock and a cup of red wine for the gravy and cooked for 6 hours, added a few mushrooms at the end. Came out great ( DH said it was the best he'd eaten ever :) which is saying something coming from a professional chef for a mother!)and hit the spot after all the holiday and little one's birthday sweets.

When finished, my pot of soup with noodles was more of a pot of noodles with soup. Loverly didn't mind - she said it was like Bob Evan's Chicken-n-Noodles, except not as salty. A win in my book!
