So, for our family home Evening last night We studied this scripture,
1 Timothy 4 : 12
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
I love this. . . I think as adults we can look back and wish things differently, instead I believe we should be grateful for our upbringing and know it was designed for our growth and purpose. Even as adults we should take care of our inner child and help our children develop creativity.
I made my Mom’s Lasagna. . .Here is the recipe.

So, first things first. . . I browned the sausage.

the layers. . . I ended up doing 3 layers of noodles and 4 layers of filling with the perfect amount of all ingredients
all layered and ready to cook in oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, 35 minutes covered with tin foil
covered and ready to cook
