Saturday Thrifting And Spaghetti Pie

Today the weather was beautiful, now only was the sun out and the wind wasn't blowing at 25 MPH, it's Saturday and time to go visit my favorite Goodwill Store. This morning I got there at 9:10 am and the parking lot was already full! As soon as I walked in the door, my plan was to see if the bird lamp was there and I got sidetracked when I saw a old croquet set and I snatched it up and asked them to set it aside for me while I looked around. I don't have a picture, it's in the garage and DH's truck is parked right up to it. It's really dirty but it's a great find!

I'm happy to say that the bird lamp was there and I grabbed it and put it in my shopping cart - I have big plans for this find and it does involve spray paint and a new shade because the shade is really dirty...ewww!

This time I spent a lot of time looking at clothes today. I seem to go through clothing phases where I wear alot of pink and then red and then blue or I like turtlenecks and then long sleeve button up shirts. I wear a lot of twin sets for work but my weekend wardrobe is lacking so today I found a couple of sweaters and a zip up sweat jacket and a purse!

I can't believe what some people give away...probably why my house is so full...

With time on my hand, I went to another Goodwill Store in town and found this glass jar for me...

and this cheese tray to give to my daughter. Crystal - do you like the tray?

Time to visit Hobby Lobby to find some supplies for a spray paint project that I've been working on. Thrifty Decor Chick is having a spray paint party on Monday, the 23rd. Make sure you check out all the great ideas and how creative people can be with spray paint!

And now I'd like to share with you a family favorite that I make quite often, it's Spaghetti Pie. I usually make a double recipe so that we have leftovers - always better the second time around. The only thing I did wrong this time was, I didn't have tomato paste so I used diced tomatoes - it's very important to use tomato paste - you can use more water than the recipe calls for but use tomato paste.

Spaghetti Pie

Cook 6 oz spaghetti

Mix together & then into hot spaghetti

2 T margarine
2 eggs
1 cup cottage cheese
1/3 c parmesan cheese

Pour into a greased 9" round pan and form into a crust.

Fry 1 # hamburger, cooked and drained

Stir in:
6 oz tomato paste
1 T sugar
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t garlic salt

Mix and pour over spaghetti

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Top with shredded mozz cheese and put back in over for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

And I had a little helper - Gilmore - the counter is his favorite place to sleep..
