This is Katie Marie- sister to Jessica, daughter to Ruth. My story is that I hate to cook. In the past, I've wiggled my way out of cooking because my Mom, Dad and Jessica did most of it. Now with Jessica gone and married off, Mom informed me that I'm going to start cooking. I love taking pictures and I'm learning to love to cook. So...here we go!
Cream Cheese Spaghetti (recipe courtesy of SpunkyJunior)
Cucumbers and Tomatos
Homemade "Squeaky" Cheese
The Cream Cheese Spaghetti is a new recipe from a friend I decided to try out. It basically is a layer of angel hair pasta, a layer of sauce, a layer of a cream cheese/sour cream mixture, and another layer of spaghetti sauce-- all baked for about 30 minutes in a 9x13 dish.
To start off, I made my home made spaghetti sauce this afternoon.
Making the sauce:
Chopped up onions:
Browning the ground beef:
Mixing it all together:
Italian Seasonings...how we season our sauce:
I also made a vinegar mixture for some cucumbers and tomatoes. This included powdered mustard, garlic powder, vinegar, salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice. :-)
No, I didn't make the bread. I picked it up from the grocery store this morning.
French Bread, warmed and buttered in the oven:
Finally, the finished product:
All in all, it was a pretty good dinner. I didn't get pictures of the ice tea or the home made cheese, which my mother had made earlier this morning. I wasn't sure how much I actually like the cream cheese and sour cream mixture in the spaghetti, but most of my family seemed to like it. Yum yum!
