New Favorite Recipe - Lasagna

I wanted to share with you one of my most favorite recipes right now.  It is crockpot Lasagna.  It is super easy to fix and is delish!

You will need:
1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
1 box of lasagna noodles, uncooked
8 oz. of sour cream
8 oz. of ricotta cheese
1 c. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 egg
1/3 cup water

Add spaghetti sauce to cooked ground beef.  Put lasagna noodles, uncooked into bottom of crockpot.  Mix together egg, Ricotta cheese, and sour cream.  Layer on top of noodles.  Next layer with ground beef mixture.  Sprinkle cheese over top.  Repeat layers.  Pour water around edges.  Cook on high for about 1 hour and then turn down to low until ready to eat. 

I promise you that you will love this recipe!

This week:

Have you gotten used to the new time change yet?  I haven't!  I was up at 6:30 this morning and then I was ready to call somebody by 7:30 and realized that it was way to early.  I am normally not even out of the bed to see 7:00am!

While we are all getting ready for the new change, there is a lot going on this week at the shop. On Tuesday from 6:00-8:00 I will be teaching the Easy Rivoli Filigree Earring class.  This is a great beginners class and is great for anyone wanting to get started in Filigree.  This class is $12.00 and includes all of your supplies.

On Thursday from 6:00-8:00 I will be teaching the Wire Wrapped Ring Class. This class is $28.00 and includes all of your supplies.  This is a basic beginners ring class.

And finally on Saturday Pauline will be teaching the Treasure Bracelet Class. This is a fantastic new technique class!  It is a lot of fun and you can make a unique and eclectic bracelet in no time at all. This class is $10.00 plus the cost of your kit.

November 7th & 8th

November 7th - I am thankful for the extra hour of sleep that I got last night.

November 4th

I am so thankful that on this day each year I get to go with my dad to do something that he really enjoys....going to the Sign and Graphics Show in Charlotte.  This is an industry show that we go to each year to see what is the newest hottest things in signs and printwear.  Its always a good time because we always see the neatest things.  This year the big thing was right up my ally....bling.  Bling was everywhere in the form of softwear that you created templates with and then used rhinestones to fill in the template and put on apparel.  I bought some wonderful Christmas Bling to put on shirts so we will see how it goes.

30 Days of thanks!

November 1st - I am ever so thankful for two Christan Parents, Kay and Mike Dalton, who taught me the importance of faith and church and giving me the best growing up experience that they could possibly give me. Thank you mom and dad!

Happy November!

Can you believe that it is already November 1st?  This year has flown by! It is 8 weeks until Christmas and we all are going to be busy busy.  Knowing this, I took Jesus and Joyce Meyers advice and I took yesterday and rested and only did things that I enjoyed that I didn't get to do the rest of the week.  I went to church then came home, put my jammies on, read, took a nap, watched a little TV, and then Sammy and I went and visited his grandmother and aunt.  It was quite refreshing and I didn't go to my bead table not even once!  But today is a new day and I am ready to get back to it!  I am working on trying to get the order done for the week and I hope to get a new video done for the website this week.  This week's video is going to be on spiral stitch.  Once this weeks video is posted then i am going to take two weeks off from the technique series and do a video on flat celini and a video on an oval ring that I did a few years ago.  So be sure and be on the look out for these great videos!

We have two great classes coming up this week.  If you haven't seen Novembers Bead Class schedule yet you need to check it out at . We have lots of great classes for this month and all the classes are easy projects that would make great gifts.  On Tuesday of this week I am going to be teaching Time Capsule Earrings from 6-8. This class is $15.00 and includes all of your supplies.
On Saturday November 6th I will be teaching the Sparkly Beaded Bead Bracelet from 10-1.  The cost of this class is $25.00 and includes all of your supplies. This is a great class but a little more advanced so you will want to make sure that you have stitching experience before taking this class.
We got in the new Bead and Button Magazine this week.  It is an amazing issue that has some wonderful projects in it.  It has an awesome Christmas Ornament Pattern in it that would make a fantastic gift.  We only have a few copies left so be sure and stop in to get your issue today.  While your there be sure to check out our new Ceramic Christmas Beads that are so great this year!  I hope each of you have a great week.
