Howdy there my friends! How are you doing today?
The SCOOP right now ~
The Daily Catitude: Calliope passed out on the Xbox looking completely lifeless.
What I’m Currently Saving For: Old Friends Midi Dress from Free People
I am, however, trying to purchase the majority of my clothing at Target and TJ Maxx to save on shipping and to try on the clothes before buying – no expensive returns! These are just a few “fun” items that have caught my eye on the Internet.
What I Last Purchased: Free People Silent D Laguna Mules
Let me start off by saying that I ADORE Silent D shoes – I own two pairs, and they’re the only heels I’ve ever been able to wear comfortably, plus they’re super cute.
These mules are currently ON SALE (and I got them an extra 30% off sale price), on trend, and I look forward to their arrival.
I have a good feeling about those shoes, as I ordered the Anthropologie High Heeled version – the Silent D Noveltee Heels – earlier in the summer, but I had to return them because the heel was about an inch too high for me. They were comfortable but simply not practical for my lifestyle.
What I’m Currently Selling: Check out my auctions on eBay here – they’re all Anthropologie and Free People!
What I’m Eating Today:
A red plum with 2/3 C Greek yogurt and a squirt of honey.
Coffee in my Anthropologie mug from Seattle.
When I was hungry again, I was craving veggies, so I sauteed up a big ol’ handful of kale, some carrots, a big piece of broccoli, about 6 Brussels sprouts, and a small piece of butternut squash, and added a bit of Sesame dressing and minced garlic.
Around 6, I was getting snacky but wasn’t quuuuuite ready for dinner yet, so I made a little tasting plate of deer sausage, carrots, broccoli, cucumber, and about two tablespoons of light ranch dressing.
- 1.5 lb ground chuck
- Parsley, basil, garlic, and oregano to season the meat
- 2 24 oz. cans of spaghetti sauce of your choice (I used Classico)
- 1 packet of McCormick Zesty Spaghetti seasoning
- 8 oz. chopped mushrooms
- 1 lb of Barilla Thick Spaghetti noodles
- 4 oz Philadelphia low fat cream cheese
- 1 C ricotta cheese
- 2 C mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 C Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown the meat in a large skillet and eyeball seasonings – basil, parsley, oregano, and minced garlic. Add the mushrooms while the beef is about halfway done browning and also add the Zesty taco seasoning. After the meat is browned, add 2 cans of spaghetti sauce and let simmer on medium.
Once the noodles are done, drain them and place them at the bottom of a casserole dish (or two … I made two casseroles out of this!).
Plop the ricotta and cream cheese on the top of the spaghetti – it looks like a lot, but it’s not as much as it seems in this picture! Good lord, that looks like a TON!Then add the meat sauce to the top! Top the casserole(s) with 2 C of mozzarella cheese and 1/2 C of Parmesan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
