Happy New Year everyone!  I cannot believe it is 2017 already, I don’t know about you but the older I get, the faster time goes by. Not only do the years go by fast, but sometimes the days fly by.  I often feel like I am just getting breakfast cleaned up and it’s already time to make dinner. It is a new year and I am really trying my hardest to make a weekly menu, I do really well at it for a while and then I fall off the wagon.  At our house we have each girl choose a night and they get to pick what they want for dinner.  They help me make it and sometimes do it on their own, they are getting pretty good and making things, and they like it.

Spaghetti is on our menu often and we figured we would do something a little different besides the normal spaghetti and canned sauce.  It doesn’t take much longer to make and it a great meal. It’s a spaghetti casserole with layers of pasta noodles, cream cheese and sour cream, and a meaty-marinara sauce, baked to cheesy perfection.
