Monday, monday…why must you torture me with unfinished business!

Dirty laundry, unwashed dishes, unfinished projects…

I’m not usually this unorganized, but thanks to a lovely Mothers Day weekend I have fallen way behind.

Truth is, I am ok with it…blessed to have my mom, my children and family to celebrate with.

Everything else can wait!

Today I’m sharing a dinner idea for days when simple, easy but tasty is in order.

This delicious pasta casserole is just a different way to serve up Spaghetti and Meatballs.

Give it a try tonight!
