Simply Lasagna and Thanksgiving Ideas!

First of all, let's start off a tasty, easy peasy lasagna recipe. I was going to make this delicious meal tonight but something else took place. A nap. It was unexpected but as Buzzbee left for his soccer game he covered me with the blanket on the couch and the next thing I knew it was two hours later and I had fallen asleep. I guess you could classify that as more than a nap. Although it was much needed and Buzzbee wasn't upset that I didn't make the lasagna since he didn't know that's what I was planning. Plus, he's very understanding.
Here is the recipe I was going to use. My mom loves this recipe and she was the one who showed me how to do it. I really love the video because I am more of a visual learner and after watching it once I have it pretty much memorized. 
What is so great about this recipe is the fact that you don't have to pre-cook the noodles or used pre-cooked noodles. It's all because we add water to the meat sauce which cooks the noodles and everything together in the oven. So great! And it tastes great too! Can't wait for tomorrow when I make it. Yay!
So here it is! Simply Lasagna from Kraft!

I am getting so excited for Thanksgiving this year and especially for Christmas!
It will be me and Buzzbee' s first Christmas together! I am sooo excited! So right now I will start with a few Thanksgiving ideas.

I have heard that the recipe on the Libby's canned pumpkin is one of the best so I am attempting to make that next week as a trial and if it works out I shall make it for Thanksgiving! Buzzbee's gramma gave us a beautiful polish pottery pie plate that I will use. I will also post the recipe for the pumpkin pie and my great grandma's pie crust recipe. My mom swears by it. So it should be a treat!

Here are a few ideas/inspirations for the Thanksgiving season.

That's all for now. I am off to enjoy my bubble bath. ahhh...can't wait. I love bubble baths with tea and candles. I don't have any matches at the moment so I will have to forgo the candles tonight.
Good night all.
