After-School Snack Time!! ((Hot n’ Ready Ham Roll-ups))

It is official, school is back in session. I have to admit – for the first time in several years, I am sad summer break is over. We had a great ((and very busy)) summer.

Super Cheesy Double Meat Baked Spaghetti

With the first bite of this baked spaghetti, I thought to myself “why has it been so long since I made this for dinner??”. I quickly answered my question — which, as I look back on this convo– makes me realize: not only am I talking to myself; I am admitting it publicly. Is that a good picture of a mom’s life or what?!
