Another day in the life of me

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

It has been a nice day so far. I took Lukas to the mall to meet up with some friends for a playdate. Lukas had a blast and it was nice to get out. I tried to take a few pictures of Lukas playing but some kid started climbing all over me and trying to take my camera. His mother just was NOT watching him at all. So I had to put my camera away. When my friend came with her 3 little girls (including her 1 month old itty bitty baby) the crazy kid with no supervision proceded to dig in her stroller and PINCH her 1 month old's cheek. FINALLY his mother comes and just stands there and says, "I'm sorry." I guess I am venting a little bit but it really irks me when people don't watch their children and let them run all over other people. I wouldn't let my son near a stroller with a tiny baby in it.
Anywho...Other than that incident we had a nice time and the kids really enjoyed playing together. Lukas even said, "more" today when he wanted some more snacks. I was so proud of him because I have been trying for months and months to get him to say it. He said it all on his own without me even prompting him! YAY, Lukas!
Last night, I made some sauce with some frozen meatballs I had left from a weekend or 2 ago and served it over angel hair pasta. It was pretty good. Lukas wanted PB&J while I was cooking but he did have some pasta from my plate.

Veggie Tomato Sauce w/Meatballs Over Angel Hair Pasta

Frozen Meatballs (I used maybe half a bag or so)
Ragu Sauce (2-3 cups...I had a BIG jar from Sam's Club)
1 can Italian Style Stewed Tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste
Green Onions (Chopped)
1 green bell pepper (Chopped)
1 small zucchini (Chopped well)
1-2 TS minced garlic
couple of TS of sugar/brown sugar
Angel Hair Pasta...or whatever you've got on hand

Put it all in a pot and let it cook for 2-3 hours or so. Boil your pasta when the sauce looks about ready to eat. Serve sauce and meatballs over pasta. Ta-da!
