Crockpot Lasagna

Our new favorite recipe...

Crockpot Lasagna

(everything is approximate - my crockpot is big)

3 lbs ground chuck/beef/sirloin
2 jars spaghetti sauce
3 oz low fat cream cheese
2 cups shredded cheese (I used colby jack)
1/2 box oven ready lasagna noodles
parmesan cheese (to taste)

Cook and drain the ground beef (I do this the night before, to cook in the morning). Mix the spaghetti sauce and meat and spread a thin layer in the bottom of the crockpot. Alternate layers of uncooked noodles, meat sauce and cheese ending with cheese. (I place slices of the cream cheese with the shredded cheese.) Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. (If my meat sauce is cold I start it on high for about 1/2 hour.)

I've never had to deal with leftovers with this recipe.
Hope y'all enjoy!

Grandma's Sugar Cup

At least that's how I thought of it....

I can remember watching her measure sugar with a cup like this so many times for Sweet Tea, Lemon Meringue Pies and Pear or Peach Cobblers.

She was the best cook, a great nurse, once caught a 25 lb catfish out of the pond, and so much more...

I wish my kids could have known her.

I'd love it if you would share some of your memories, too.
