slow cooker spaghetti sauce
1 pound beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 14 0z. can diced tomatoes with juice
6 oz. can tomato paste
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 bay leaf
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon dried thyme

1. brown meat and onion in saucepan. drain well. transfer to slow cooker.
2. add remaining ingredients.
3. cover. cook on low for 7 hours.

This serves 8.

I can tell you my kiddos ate this ALL up!  They ate it better than out of the jar.  I will definitely make this again!

I wanted to share one really cool creative thing that happened to me this past week.  one of my pages was featured on the WONDERFUL Aussie Scrap Source website.  it was a sweet surprise getting the e-mail, I felt very honored.  Thanks girls!

it's been raining here, love the wet and cloud cover--my garden loves it too!  my cantaloupe and tomatoes have flowers!!  That means fruit--EXCITING!!

thanks for popping in!  sure hope that you have a wonderful weekend!
