I have had one of the most amazing days. Two lovely ladies from my church, Miss Bobbie and Miss Sherry, came around 4 PM to hang out with me and my mom. We ate, just talked, and played THREE board games: Glory, Jumanji, and Bible Pictionary. The first two were fun, but the game of Bible Pictionary was the most hilarious events. Sadly, none of us can draw to save our lives, so we all were just having to completly guess what each other was drawing. We almost rolled over laughing. They just left, and it's already after 11 PM. It was a delightful evening.
I had the opprotunity to cook a Baked Spaghetti. I adore cooking, but I never cook, for some reason. I really need to cook more often! The Baked Spaghetti came out EXTREMLY well, if I might say! This is the recipe I used:

1 (16 oz) package of spaghetti noodles
1 medium onion, chopped
Sm. can of mushrooms (Optional)
1 (26 oz) jar of meatless spaghetti sauce
2 eggs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
5 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cups small curd cottage cheese
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Salt and garlic powder

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, saute onion in a large skillet until clear. Stir in spaghetti sauce, mushrooms (drained), salt, and garlic powder; set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, Parmesan cheese, and butter. Drain spaghetti noodles; add egg mixture and toss to coat.
Place half of spaghetti mixture to greased baking dish. Top with half of the cottage cheese, sauce mix, and mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers.
Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted.

This dish is extremly easy to make and, oh, so satisfying! I would reccomend it to anyone with a love for Italian food or vegetarian meals. I have been a vegetarian for almost four years and love when I can find a great dish like this that EVERYONE (meat eaters included) will like!
