My Wild Friday Night

TGIF!!!!!!! OMG I was literally counting down the minutes of the school day. But it’s here and it’s exciting. I don’t know if it was the weather, or what, but this week every child in my town was out of control! This weekend is going to be amazing. Do I have special plans? No…. and I can’t wait!


SO I know everyone has probably been going crazy wondering what is inside this crock pot so I won’t hold you in suspense any longer hahahahha

The inspiration for tonight’s meal came from the new cookbook I got for Nolan’s birthday.

($5 T.J.Maxx)

The recipe was actually for chili, but we have a ton of pasta in the cabinet so I made it into a meat sauce.

Last night I browned up some hamburger meat…..

…chopped up some bell peppers, yellow onions, garlic and mushrooms

…found a can of diced tomatoes, and threw the rest of the salsa from Monday night’s dinner into the crock pot!

Add in some spices….

and we had a meat sauce!

I let this sit and absorb juices in the fridge over night and in the morning it was plugged in and ready to go! 6 hours and a batch of whole wheat pasta later, we had a meal 🙂

Now I don’t want to sound like an alcoholic (that’s aimed to you mom 🙂  ) but after this week, I could not wait to open the new bottle of wine I bought at Trader Joe’s!

This wine was recommended by a co worker of mine and it was amazing! It was fruity and had some bubbles which I love. It reminded me of a fancy bottle of champagne. And yes, it was only $4! Got to love TJ’s!

Since I am already in pajamas on the couch, I will probably have the perfect night. A bottle glass of wine, pajamas, and some bad tv. The perfect end to a mind numbing week!


How do you unwind after a tough week?
