Summer Pasta & Homemade Sauce

I love eating pasta, and the sauce is for sure what makes it special. My Mom has always made delicious sauce to go with our spaghetti, and this is a recipe she makes that I modified slightly. It’s a perfect summer sauce. My amounts are a little vague, as you kind of need to just make as much as you think works…..Let me know if you try it out! πŸ™‚

 

Summer Pasta & Homemade Sauce

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of spaghetti noodles (any pasta works!)
  • Fresh tomatoes, chopped up (or canned tomatoes)
  • Garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • Zucchini, in small cubes
  • Eggs
  • Oregano (or an herb you like)
  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  • Olives (for topping)
  • Cheese (I didn’t use any, because I forgot, but I’d definitely add that on top at the end!)

Instructions:

Boil water, add a handful of salt to the water, and add pasta. Cook per package instructions. If pasta is done before sauce, drain, rinse under cold water (to stop cooking), and drizzle with oil to prevent sticking.

In a pan, on medium heat, heat olive oil. Once hot, add chopped garlic. Let slightly brown and then add in the tomatoes and zucchini. Add salt and oregano, and stir. Let cook for at least 5 minutes, until the zucchini is soft.

Next, either put this sauce into a bowl and set aside to cook the eggs, or get a new pan to fry the eggs. Scramble your eggs (with a little salt).

Once the eggs are done, add the sauce to the pan, and stir. Let cook for a couple minutes (or until pasta is done). Throughout this process, make sure your heat isn’t too high that it burns off the tomato liquid, or you won’t have a sauce – adjust temperature as needed.

Serve pasta with sauce….add some chopped olives as garnish. Enjoy!

 

 

Another Year….

Hey y’all! Quick little post for you guys tonight….I just wanted to get on here and say that I’m starting my junior year of university tomorrow, which is both insane and kinda nerveracking at the same time. I’ve had an awesome summer–I worked and did some really fun things. My best friend stayed in town for the summer so we got to hang out a ton, and basically it was awesome. I suck at having a regular posting schedule so I’m not gonna say that’ll I’ll try to post cause with school starting that’ll be a fail.Β But, I do have some awesome pictures from a couple of trips we took to the Tetons this summer, so I do wanna share those ASAP.

I’m totally not ready to start classes again but gotta get back in the groove and that’s what I’m gonna do I guess. I don’t know if you guys are interested in my classes and stuff, so if you are let me know in the comments and I can always post about it. I also kinda wanted to do a ‘day in the life’ or something type vlog video for fun at school, but I have NO freakin idea if I can lol. I probably suck at doing it plus it’s a little awkward videoing yourself in public. But we might do it. Let me know if you’d like to see something like that!

So, yeah, guess I just wanted to pop on here quickly and say hi. I hope your summers were amazing, hopefully, weather permitting, it’s not quite over yet. Hopefully I’ll talk to y’all soon, again. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sticking around!

Love you guys, and God Bless! ❀

Happy 4th of July!!!

Hello everyone! Happy 4th of July! I hope you all have a wonderful day and celebration. Enjoy the fireworks and family.

A huge thank you to our armed forces and law enforcement. And to all those who have given their lives for this country, so we can enjoy the freedom we do today, a big thank you. As well as to their families, and to the families of servicemen and women everywhere.

Don’t forget to watch the fireworks live from D.C. and you can rewatch the President’s speech and military air craft flyovers here:

Happy 4th of July everyone!! Enjoy this Independence Day. God Bless!! ❀ God Bless America!! πŸ˜€

Watercolor Cards

It’s no secret my creative talents don’t lie in art, particularly drawing or painting. However, since my best friend has been sending me pictures of her pretty watercolor cards that she’s been doing and it’s my day off, I figured I’d give it a try. Here are the cards I created. Nothing special, but I guess they’re aren’t too bad. It was definitely pretty fun! I’ll try and get better at it, but I need to buy some better brushes first. Have you tried watercolors? πŸ™‚

I apologize for the bad picture quality/background….I was lazy to make it look nice πŸ˜› whoops!

And this is a card I did with pen and coloring pencils (better than the rest, imo!) πŸ˜€ ❀

Dear Mr. President……

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mr. President! You have been a blessing to this country and we could not be more grateful for you. You have our vote in the 2020 elections, and our support ALWAYS. Keep doing the wonderful work you have been, we are praying for you, your staff, your family, and America every day. God Bless and Happy Birthday!Β 


I just wanted to write a quick appreciation post to our president because I think after almost four years of being in office and five years since he first ran, the country has not only regained so much of the wonderful qualities we’d started to forget, but also has drastically improved in so many areas. If you’d like to spread the love, appreciation, and love of our country, please re-post this article, share it on social media, and write your own Happy Birthday to our president! God Bless!

Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate the absolute perfection of our First Lady? She is SOOOO beautiful and gorgeous and I think she has an impeccable sense of fashion. I wish I could dress like her for a week and look half as good. We love you Melania!

Please share everyone! #MAGA Let’s show OUR president our love and support! Thank you! ❀
