Found my Memory..

Well, I have been MIA the last couple of days because my 4 year old decided to hide my memory card in her red vinyl spiderman wallet.... I have been searching high and low so that I could take some pics and post on my blog!! Thank Goodness she remembered ( finally) where the wallet was!! The girls and I painted some wood easter eggs this weekend and had a blast, so now I have to hit the stores this weekend to get more for them to paint. I did the chick and ladybug egg, and I have to admit it was a lot of fun! I did get some work done this weekend, some scrapbooking and sewing and now today I will be working on cleaning the toy room... heaven help me!! I did finish this good will find for my scrapbook room. I haven't put anything in it, but I got this mail holder for .99 and her is the before and after..

And after....

I love how it turned out... helps me feel so creative!! I made some tuna noodle casserole this morning for dinner tonight and for thoae of you who enjoy tuna noodle casserole, I thought I'd share my recipe for it. The recipe was one my mom always made, so the exact measurements are long gone, so I am going to give you an approximation and you can change it to suit your taste!! I have tried many recipes ( this has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid ) and so far I believe nothing beats this simple recipe!!

Mom's Tuna Noodle Casserole

1 bag egg noodles, 1/4 c. Mayo, 2 C. Cheddar Cheese, 1 can cream of celery soup, Milk, Celery, onion, 1 can or envelope of tuna

Cook noodles until al dente.. in a large casserole mix the cooked noodles, 1 can of tuna, and your veggies with a large scoop or about 1/4 c. Mayo. I use celery and onion, but you can also add peas, chopped pimento.. whatever suits your taste. In a small saucepan, combine your can of soup and 1 can of milk. heat this up until combined and then add your cheese to make a cheese sauce. once the cheese has melted, pour over your noodles and mix well. Heat on a 350 degree oven for about 30 min or until heated through. Casserole can be topped with crushed potato chips, bread crumbs, french fried can onions... I leave mine plain but it turnes out well with topping as well!! Enjoy!!
