we're classy.

Doug and I had as good of an anniversary as you can...with two little monkeys living in your house. :) We had cake and dinner...and exchanged gifts...sort of.
Doug bought me a MACbook for my business.
I bought him a book and a cake that we ate with forks...right out of the box.
I have stopped trying to compete with his gift giving abilities.
I just can't keep up with his skill level.
On the first night of our honeymoon we stayed at the Inn at Virginia Tech...and had the best cheeseburgers of our lives. Best ever!
In honor of those burgers I called on my girl Paula Deen for a yummy recipe.

I made Cheeseburger Casserole. Yum. Easy. Perfect meal for kids.
Moses even ate a noodle.

You should make this today...

1 pound ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
One 28-ounce can chopped tomatoes, with juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
8 ounces wide egg noodles
Cooking spray
2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat, stirring to break up the lumps, until all of the pink is gone from the meat. Get an adult to help you drain off the fat.

Add the onion and green pepper, and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, with juice, and the Worcestershire sauce, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to low. Simmer the mixture for about 15 minutes.

Fill the medium pot halfway full of water. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Bring the water to a boil. Stir in the noodles and boil for about 8 minutes, until tender. Get an adult to help you drain the noodles. Return the noodles to the pot. Pour the tomato mixture over the noodles, and stir until blended.

Put the noodle mixture in the baking dish that you have sprayed with cooking spray. Top with cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted.

And just thought I would share our wedding invites. I made them and still love them.
They were magnets and came with directions. It was so fun to see them played with on friends fridges after we were married.
And I made these thinking that I came up with a cute NEW idea...but since then have seen them here or there in some form...you can peek HERE or HERE for other cute versions.
Each little doll holds a strip of paper...perfect for a love note or little greeting.

Hope your weekend is super duper!

Okay those are the coolest invitations ever! Please do share how you made them! I love the idea.

(I have a million friend who got married this past summer and bunch more getting married this summer. I need unique ideas that someone hasn't already done).

Mmmmm... the cake looks so good!
I LOVE my Macbook. I can't imagine life without it. Also, your little note keepers are adorable! GOOD JOB! Thank you for the shout out! :)

All of your lovelies makes me smile...

Can I just tell you that I LOVE your play list and the songs I'm listening to right now. You have great taste in crafts and music!!!!

I LOVE your wedding invitations. So creative and unique!!!! With our wedding invitations we sent out a picture from our engagement with a request for people to join us in prayer for our upcoming union, with a magnet on the back also. It was fun to see that on our friends fridges then (and even still on some now). It was even better to know that our friends and family were looking at that everyday and reminded to pray for us!

Oh, and we're totally classy... we frequently eat leftovers straight out of the dish like you did with your cake. Sometmes I wonder if we'll grow up before we have kids, so we can at least teach them good manners.

Love the invitation! Will you share how you made it? It would be great for so many occasions!

Also, I laughed at your previous post about the creepy emails. I saw you once at Panera (recognized you from the blog) and was going to say hi or send you a comment to let you know, but I decided that both would have been ... too creepy ;)

Enjoy your Macbook. The hubs has the iMac and I have the Macbook and he's always using mine! Cute little dolls!

Megan said...

Cheers to another fabulous year!

Happy Anniversary!

Sounds like a perfect way to spend an anniversary! I love your invites. My sister gave out magnetic poetry in mini tins for her favors.

Your new little dollies are adorable.

To make the casserole, do you just mix everthing and bake at 350 for about an hour?

Lisa said...

Thanks for the recipe, I'm going to add this to my menu!

That is so cute! YOu are so creative and talented. By the way...I would never judge you for eating with the fork. WHat wouldn't be classy is eating it out of the box with PLASTIC forks! haha

Gram said...

Made the recipe - the whole family loved it. I love the note keepers.

I enjoy your blog and your little crafts - makes me jealous that I don't have the time or talent to create.
