Mr. Rooster's Recipes

Since I have been back to work on a part time basis, Mr. Rooster has been doing some cooking.

Tonight he made his Spaghetti Bake.  It is very simple.  He makes a whole box of spaghetti, mixes it with two cans of Hunts sauce, tops it with shredded cheese, and bakes it at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.  MMMMmmmm.  It tastes so much better than just plain old spaghetti.

I tossed the ingredients into the bread machine earlier, so we had a nice loaf of fresh bread.  You can find this super easy bread machine bread here:  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/best-bread-machine-bread/detail.aspx  This always comes out good.  I use whatever oil that I have on hand.  I make this loaf often.

It is funny also because the pan that he uses has a rooster on the bottom. 

Have a wonderful day.

Is time alone possible?? LOL

It is late.  Bri is in bed.  Rooster and I are watching "Flashpoint".  Suddenly, we aren't really interested in the show. 

We go into our room and shut the door.  Time for just us.  Oh boy!!

The dog barges in and hops on the bed and starts loudly chewing on a rawhide.  We give the rawhide a chuck into the hallway.  Now Bri comes thru the door.  She wants a group hug.  We get her back into her room.  The dog is back on the bed with her rawhide. 

Rooster and I start to laugh.  The mood is just plain broken.  He hugs me and we just laugh.  What else can you say?

Friday Night is Date Night at the Morgan House

http://antiqueclipart.com/image.php/a-quiet-afternoon-together.html


I didn't realize how much we would enjoy date night.  We don't go "out" because we don't know many people around to leave Bri with.  So we started date night at home.  (Great ideas at Dating Divas  See link on sideboard)

Every Friday night we spend time together.  Bri gets something new to watch and a treat to eat.  We watch tv, a movie, or just talk.  We really look forward to it. 

Bri is really good about spending the evening in her room to let Mom and Dad have the night together.  I have helped pave the way for this by Daddy and Bri night on Saturday nights.  They eat dinner together and watch tv, play a game, or watch a movie.  If I am not at work, I use this as Mommy time.  I read magazines, take a nice bath, crochet, or just go to bed early.  Great relaxing and refueling for me.

I didn't think we needed date night before.  But we really look forward to it.  One night I was sick and just went to bed.  Rooster told me that he was very disappointed.  It really makes a difference.

Do you have a date night?  What do you like to do?  Why don't you have a date night?

Have a great weekend.

Walking in faith

Good morning.  I hope that you are well today.  We are doing ok.  Things are about the same here.  The way that I look at things are changing.  I sat on the steps this morning, enjoyed a nice breeze, and watched the boats on the lake.  I am very blessed.  Counting those blessings is helping me keep things in perspective.  Trying to take one day at a time.  Spend a lot of time listening to a really nice Christian station called KSBJ.  You can listen to it here:  http://www.ksbj.org/

I worked a very long day yesterday.  Got some sun and was burned a little.  But Rooster had put the Aloe Gel in the refrig and it was wonderfully cold on my back.  Very hot here.  We saw 86 yesterday.  Welcome to Houston weather.  LOL

We are gearing up for Mother's Day at work.  So I was busy putting hanging basket holders out and putting hanging baskets on them.  We got some very beautiful flowers in.  I love the rust, peach, and yellow that are out this year.

Came home to a nice dinner made by my Rooster.  He made a beef roast, carrots, and potatoes.  It was so good.  I think it was even better since he made it.  Now I understand why he enjoys coming home to dinner being made by me.  Plus a nice cup of tea. 

Bri is doing better.  Rooster has taken her to the pool a few times.  That cheers her up.  Plus it is good for her to get some exercise.  She sleeps better.  I am looking at curriculum for fall. 

That is about all that is new here.  Take care and have a blessed day.
