Today was another beautiful day.  

Spring has sprung indeed.   I found these pretty spring pictures and thought I'd share them with you.

David was working in his raised beds today, getting them ready to start planting and found a nice surprise.

He was pulling out grass, weeds and such.  He noticed two carrot tops, wondering how he still had carrot tops... so he pulled them out and this is what he found.

They must have grown through the winter, we have had a mild enough winter for them to do so, but these are the biggest carrots I've ever seen.



I asked my daughter to pick out something for me to make for the weekly recipe and she chose Lasagna. :)

Easy Lasagna

3 cups ricotta cheese
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 eggs
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound your favorite sausage
1 (48 oz) jar/can of your choice Traditional Italian pasta sauce
12 cooked lasagna noodles, well drained
1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese

  • Heat oven to 400° F
  • Mix ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese and eggs together.
  • Cook beef and sausage in saucepan until browned.  Drain off any fat.  Stir in the pasta sauce.
  • In a 9x13 baking dish, spread 2 cups of meat/sauce mixture, top with 4 lasagna noodles, add 2 cups of ricotta cheese mixture on top of noodles.
  • Repeat layers until all ingredients are used up or until pan if full, ending with ricotta cheese mixture.
  • Add shredded Parmesan cheese on top.
  • Place in oven and cook for 30 minutes.  You may want to put a baking sheet on a lower rack, in case the lasagna bubbles over.
  • Let lasagna stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Singing birds flutter by,
Playing in the sunshine.
Rain has washed everything fresh,
Instantly making the colors bright.
New life springs ahead,
Glad it's Spring, and winter is put to bed.


Have a great Sunday!

God bless and keep you,

Beauty of Giving
