Recently Dear Friend and Little Thing moved in with us.  We don’t know what this adventure will hold. But so far it has been good. Dear Friend has help with Little Thing and I have help keeping the house clean.  Having someone to do the dishes after I’ve made dinner or canned something is fantastic.  Sometimes I feel bad for the giant mess I’ve made, but it hasn’t stopped me yet.  It was also great to have someone here while we are away. I don’t worry that no one is watching the house. Dear Friend is becoming more dear and we are enjoying having them here.

One of the things that I made recently that I made a giant mess is Baked Ziti.  It is one of my favorite meals to eat in the fall. I like that it is a twist on lasagna. And I think a little easier because I don’t have to lay out the noodles after cooking them.  Yet, you still get a layered effect. 

This recipe uses the spaghetti sauce that I showed you how to can earlier this week.
