Friday Fill In's

1. The lesson I learned yesterday was you can't rely on just anybody for what you want/need...you gotta make it happen on your own.

2. I can't tell you exactly where friends and family meet.

3. All these years have gone by way too fast.....

4. I changed the lives of a few people when I arrived.

5. The truth is sometimes painful, but you gotta suck it up and deal with it most of the time.

6. Crying is what I remember most from that day.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going over to Collin's after I get done tutoring and celebrating his last day of high school with his family, tomorrow my plans include robotics and Sunday, I want to just be able to breathe and relax for a few minutes!!

Campbell's Beef and Mozzarella Bake

My mom and dad used to make this when we lived in New Orleans. And my sister and I ate every bite of it when we were little. And when my dad made it on Monday, there was none left over :)

1 pound ground beef
1 (11 1/8 ounce) can Campbell's Condensed Italian tomato Soup
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can Campbell's Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 1/4 cups water
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (or 1 clove garlic, minced)
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 ounces), divided use
4 cups hot cooked medium shell macaroni (about 3 cups uncooked)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook beef until browned, stirring to separate meat. Pour off fat.

Add soups, water, basil, pepper, garlic powder, 1 cup cheese and macaroni. Spoon into 2-quart shallow baking dish.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until hot. Stir. Sprinkle remaining cheese over beef mixture. Bake 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted.
