Something practical
--Sausage-Beef Spaghetti Sauce

Sausage-Beef Spaghetti Sauce
Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook Copyright 2000

1 lb ground beef
1 lb Italian sausage, sliced
2 28-ounce cans crushed tomatoes
¾ can (28-ounce tomato can) water
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. or more parsley
2 Tbsp. dried oregano
2 12-ounce cans tomato paste
2 12-ounc cans tomato puree

1. Brown ground beef and sausage in skillet. Drain. Transfer to a large slow cooker.
2. Add crushed tomatoes, water, garlic powder, pepper, parsley, and oregano.
3. Cover. Cook on HIGH 30 minutes. Add tomato paste and tomato puree. Cook on LOW 6 hours.

This recipe isn't all that interesting but it made a HUGE amount, so now I have sauce in the freezer for when after the baby comes.

It was good, nothing special but a good basic recipe that hit the spot. It was heavy on the oregano which I thought might bother me at first but it didn't.

I'm too exhausted to form any more coherent thoughts today. I think I set the record for getting up to pee last night.

Blast From The Past: Mini Cocoa Swirl Cheesecakes from October 2007. I should make those again since they're relatively low in carbs.

Question of the Day: Did you get a good night's sleep last night?

YES!!! I did. And that is rare enough, that I am thrilled with it.

Wanda! What happened?? I can't believe you had a good night's sleep, poor baby. Of course, I did. (I could be a professional).

I got about 3 hours total sleep between 10 pm and 7 am. Little Mister decided to become Mister Cranky Butt and cry anytime I wasn't feeding him. So no I didn't sleep good last night and probably won't for a few months. ugh

Better than I expected, but it seems like never enough LOL.

When I was pg with DD, she carried very high under my ribcage and I had a hard time breathing, worse laying down. My best way to catch an hour or two was sitting up leaning on the back of the couch, propped with pillows.
