Just another weekend..

Oh, it hardly seems we just started the weekend and here we are on Sunday evening and another week will start shortly! Our weekend has been pretty low key and I’m ok with that. Ava really needed some extra rest after being so sick. I’m glad to report that except for a nasty cough that has come on, she seems to be mostly recovered and back to her old antics.

We got a call this morning that Zach’s grandma passed away in the middle of the night. She had a very brief battle with cancer and the end was very rough for all involved. Please join me in praying for Zach’s dad and aunt, and entire family as we prepare to say goodbye this week. I know we are all thankful that her suffering has come to an end.

After church, we spent a quiet afternoon at home. Ava played outside a little bit and I got busy making dinner. We had homemade lasagna! YUM! IMG_2344IMG_2347

This is my FAVORITE lasagna. I don’t even like the stuff at most Italian restaurants b/c it just doesn’t compare to this!

We also bought a loaf of fresh french bread to make garlic bread. I spread butter on each slice and then sprinkled this on it:garlicparmesan It got rave reviews! This is how we will be making garlic bread from now on! Soooo good!

Last week we were supposed to have dinner with my family, but my sister came down with the flu so we had to cancel. I had already bought the ingredients to make a dessert and went ahead and made it this weekend so my strawberries wouldn’t go bad.IMG_2333IMG_2337

This is a Strawberry Tres Leche Trifle. I made it for a Pampered Chef party a couple weeks ago and it was HUGE hit! It’s got pound cake, strawberries and some other goodies that just make it what it is! It is delicious and light. With it coming up, this would be a great spring time dessert!

If you’re interested in either recipe, let me know.

They are predicting some possible severe weather tonight. I hope we don’t get anything major, but as far as I’m concerned, bring on the rain!

Alright, time to settle down for some Amazing Race and the Oscars! Have a happy week!

P.S. – Be on the lookout. Super giveaway coming up very soon!


  1. So I am thinking we should have gone to your house for dinner. YUM! My kids are having popcorn and I can't think of anything that sounds good. Doesn't seem worth cooking when Jim is at work. I have never made lasagna - always sounded so complicated. I keep meaning to make that crock pot version that Sarah C shared but I haven't gotten around to that one either. I would love the desert recipe though. Looks delish!

    Sorry, I was talking baseball talk after church and didn't get to visit. I am glad Zach's grandma isn't suffering anymore. Looks like you guys will have a busy week. Good thing Ava is on the mend!

    Tell Zach his family is in our prayers.

  2. You guys are in my prayers, Sarah! Please tell Zach that we are thinking of him and his family tonight. Love y'all!

  3. I am sorry to hear about Zach's grandma. Prayers to his family!

    So happy to hear that Ava is over the worst of her sickness. I hope she fully recovers quickly and stays healthy!

    xoxo, Kelly
