YES....I am still here~just really busy.

We are finally in full swing harvest.

At the time we are combining Spring Wheat.

So far, so good.

Today I picked a whole bunch of

tomatoes. Hopefully, I will have the

time to can pasta sauce and salsa.

The lunches have been packed

and are already in the field.

I prepared Baked Spaghetti to

serve for supper tonight.

Right now, I have

Harvest Bundt Cake

baking in the oven and

it smells really yummy.

Love the smells of fall

baking....pumpkin, cinnamon,

ginger and nutmeg! :)


16 oz. package spaghetti, cookied

2-24 oz. jars spaghetti sauce

2 pounds extra lean ground beef, browned

1 small onion, diced and browned with beef

4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons flour

4 tablespoons parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 tablespoon minced garlic (i use garlic press)

12 oz evaporated milk

2 cups lowfat cheddar cheese, shredded

1 cup mozzarella, shredded


Combine spaghetti sauce and cooked beef. Set aside.

In a saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter, add

flour, parmesan cheese and garlic. Stir until smooth and bubbly.

Add milk and cheddar cheese-stir until melted.

Add half of the spaghetti and sauce mixture

to a greased 9x13 baking dish and

spread cheese mixture over spaghetti.

Add remaining spaghetti and sauce mixture to top of

cheese mixture layer.

Sprinkle remaining mozzarella and cheddar cheese

on top of spaghetti.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Cover with tinfoil for 20 minutes and then

undercover for the last 10 minutes.

Check often...don't let it get dry!

(sorry I don't have a picture of

the spaghetti after it's baked

because I have not baked it yet

and I wanted to get this posted!)


Here is a picture of

the finished

Harvest Bundt Cake.

Looks yummy too! :0

Have a great day....

I am headed out to the field.
I would LOVE to know what
YOU are doing today!

We were lazy this morning and then attended a fall festival parade around noon. After that we headed to the festival to walk around and support our local community by eating their wonderful food and playing a few games. Now we are home and trying to get some things accomplished outside. (you can tell I am getting alot done!)

I haven't made bake spaghetti in a long time. I am adding it to the menu for next week. Have fun harvesting!

Now that's what I call dinner and dessert! Yummy! Thanks for sharing another great recipe with us.

Today I met my best friend, Roxanne, at Hunt Valley. She's just getting out and about after having knee replacement surgery. She couldn't walk much because she's still taking therapy, but we had a blast visiting each other. We sat outside to talk and then ate at the California Grill. I had the Jambalaya again. It is so good! Brought the rest home and will have it for lunch tomorrow.

She and I spent 5 hours just talking and people watching. I was sorry for it to end, but we were both a little tired. :) She drove back to PA and I stayed to do a little shopping at Wegman's. After that I nodded off on the lightrail back home, but made it safely. What a good day I had.

Hope you get some rest after being in the fields all day. xxoo

Looks really good. We love spaghetti here at our house. I am curious to know what kind of spaghetti sauce you use. We don't really care for any bottle kind, yet they've quit making the mix we used to use. I'm willing to try anything. Thanks for the recipe.
