It's hard to believe Easter is upon us. Last year we spent our holiday in quarantine. This Easter we have been invited to family's house for dinner, which is very exciting for all of us. We will celebrate happily and safely. I'll bring the trifle! I just have to decide if I want to go the chocolate cake & pudding version OR the angel food cake and fruit version. Angel cake and fruit is nice and light but everybody love chocolate. Which do you like better?

Spring arrived in full bloom this weekend and blessed us with some beautiful weather. Yesterday I had all my windows open and enjoyed fresh air wafting in and out throughout the house. I love that smell the first days of spring bring. I'm not breaking out my shorts yet, but it's coming!
Goodbye winter! : )
I pulled out some of my spring and Easter décor and packed away the last few bits of winter. It's such a nice feeling seeing all the pastel colors. It's very cheery and we need cheery right now. I heard on the news this morning that the travel restrictions in my state have been lifted and that gave me a sparkle of excitement for summer plans. We are moving forward cautiously, but in a much better place than we've been. Feeling blessed about that ♥
I managed to check most things off my to do list this weekend and whatever didn't get done (like paperwork!) will just have to wait. My local Dairy Queen opened on Friday and well...that's priority! Crock pot pulled pork sandwiches were a hit on Saturday and Sunday I tried out a new Pinterest recipe for a baked garlic chicken. It was delicious and I'll share the recipe soon!
A good weekend, indeed!
And now it's Monday and I'm back to work.
Coffee, work, coffee, work...ect.
Have a happy day friends! Wishing you all a beautiful first week of springtime!

To start the week off I wanted to share with you an easy weeknight meal. Lasagna! I've been making this recipe for a while now and in our house we all love it. What makes it so quick are the oven ready noodles. You don't have to precook them. Just layer them up and you are in business.
~These are the ones I use~
Also, here's another tip. You can substitute cottage cheese for the ricotta. I know, I was skeptical at first too, but honestly once it's baked you can't tell the difference! It's a lighter way to enjoy lasagna and it still tastes just as yummy. I don't skimp on the mozzarella though...just sayin!
John isn't a fan of of meat sauce so I usually skip that and use plain sauce.
It's great for Friday's during lent or when we want to do a meatless meal.
And there you go! I served with garlic bread and a side salad. YUM!
So now you know what I'll be having for dinner tonight because there are plenty of leftovers and that's ok with me. It means I don't have to cook tonight and I appreciate that on a Monday!
Before I go I wanted to show you this lovely sight I caught out of the corner of my eye this morning...
Green shoots of life spouting up from the Earth! It means spring is coming and everything is coming back to life once again. Yay! I'm so ready.
Have a wonderful Monday friends! Let's make it a good week ♥
PS did you watch the Harry & Meghan Oprah special last night? Oh Dear... I'm still trying to process it!!! 😮
