What I'm Loving Wednesday!

I'm linking up today with this kind of love to share what I'm loving today!

Gen. Grievous (from Star Wars), Lil' Cowboy & Vampiress

Baby Pumpkin & my Sweetie

Loving my family! We had a great time trick-or-treating! We were out for about 30 minutes (the kids get cold easy and we don't need that much candy) and then took the kids to Starbucks to trick or treat and have a vanilla steamer.

This is me with my bestie, Charlie. Picture taken at PRIDE Columbus 2009. We are traveling to Columbus this weekend. So, I'm loving him, loving that we will have some "girl time" Saturday. AND loving that he says (after 3 years of living in Canada) he is coming to visit in February!!

Loving that the Holiday cups are back at Starbucks! Supposedly they came out yesterday, but when my Sweetie brought me my non-fat, extra hot Caramel Macchiato it was in a boring, everyday cup. I don't know what it is about that red cup that just makes everything happy. My little "cup o' cheer".

I am SO loving that Bones is back tomorrow!!! Season 7, super excited!

Here are the recipes I promised. I forgot to take pictures, I'm sorry. Next time I make it!!

My Mommy's Lasagna
1 box lasagna noodles
1 lb hamburger
1 lb sage sausage
package of sliced pepperoni
2-3 cups shredded cheddar
2-3 cups shredded mozzarella
1 cup Parmesan (I use shredded)
1 cup ricotta (optional)
1 lg can tomato sauce
2 lg cans tomato paste

-Cook noodles till tender
-brown the hamburger & sausage together
-cook the tomato sauce and paste together, add garlic and oregano (to taste)
-add the meat to the sauce
-thin layer of sauce on the bottom of the pan
-put the first layer of the noodles in the pan and then a layer of sauce
-add layer of pepperoni
-add a layer of each cheese EXCEPT for the Parmesan
-repeat layers until ingredients all gone (or you run out of space in pan)
-End with noodles on top, then sprinkle on the Parmesan

Bake 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until it browns on top/edges and sauce bubbles through to the top.
**if you prepare ahead of time and refrigerate cooking time will be longer.
