Tonight I was super hungry and I was really craving some sort of pasta sauce with meatballs. I love making homemade meatballs myself, but tonight I was just being lazy and did not want to make my own meatballs. So I thought why not just go out and by some meatballs to make and see if the kids like them.

The only thing was that I did not want anything that has bad ingredients, or all sorts of fillers. I'm not one for pre-packaged meat, so buying the meat and cooking it is quite a stretch for me.  So if I'm going to buy some really good meatballs I want some really good sauce to go with them. A great sauce is one that is really simple and not over packed with all sorts of things that do not need to be in

A great sauce is one that is really simple and not over packed with all sorts of things that do not need to be in the jar.

One of my favorite sauce hands down is Organic Bella, but that is for another post on a different day. If you ever get a chance to try that one out you most surely should. The marinara is so delicious!

 

 

So as I was strolling the aisle in the store I saw these jars of La Famiglia Delgrosso pasta sauce. The packaging looked really old world just like I like them, and the graphics of the family on the front really caught my eye. The jar was actually quite large too, a little bit bigger than the other ones on the shelf.

So I thought, this seems to be a nice family size of pasta sauce.

I really loved how on the back of the La Famiglia Delgrosso Pasta Sauce it is made with No-GMO'S, Gluten Free, and No Sugar Added!

As you can see the only ingredients are:

  • Italian Plum Tomatoes
  • Crushed Tomatoes
  • Imported Olive Oil
  • Fresh Onions
  • Basil
  • Sea Salt
  • Garlic
  • Black Pepper
  • Bay and Crushed Pepper

 

 


 

I ended up cooking the meatballs on low to let is simmer for 35-40 minutes to really infuse the Delgrosso sauce into the meatballs. As you can see in the picture below.

Then I went on ahead to make the spaghetti noodles and once that was finished cooking,  I just topped the pasta sauce with a couple of meatballs and some Parmesan Reggiano.

See!

It was actually quite good, and not that bad at all. With a great old world taste to it! This La Famiglia pasta sauce I will admit is not one of the best of I have tested. However, it is in the top 10 of bottled pasta sauce on the market today. I know it has great pasta sauce reviews on it and I really feel it is well deserved. It isn't salty at all and does not have that pre-packaged taste, but a nice smooth as if it was made right in your own home sort of taste.

Really quite good. 😉

 

This pasta sauce I will buy again, not so sure about the meatballs even though they are the best pre-packaged meatballs I've ever tasted. They were just a little bit on the salty side. However, I plan to use the leftover meatballs to make meatball subs tomorrow for the kid's lunch on some hoagies with provolone cheese.

Good Stuff!

 

What about you, have you ever tried the La Famiglia Delgrosso Pasta Sauce?

This past weekend Hubby and I had a chance to get out and have some fun with some old friends. We ended up going to House of Blues Orlando to see one my husband's favorite male groups from the early 90's called Jodeci. It was so much fun being able to see Kc and Jojo and the other members of the group just have fun and sing their butts off.

For a minute there I thought they were not going sing live since they have had their share of issues in the past, but to my surprise they sounded great and even have new music out. It was so much fun, just to be able to hang out and let loose without having no kids around. Ryan's mom came to watch the kid's while we went out for dinner at Carraba's and then to the House of blues Orlando. They do have food there, but all though I do love bar food. I really did not feel like eating bar food this night.

At Carrabba's my hubby and I both had the Filet Steak with Blue cheese crumbles and Fettuccine for the Pasta, it was so good! In fact, if you ever wanted to find deals on places to eat in your area then check out resturants.com they have awesome deals, coupons you can download to reduce the cost of the meal.

I just thought I would throw that out there.

All in all we had so much and was still not out too late since the show started at 8:30 we still had time to make it home and still get a good night sleep…..

 

I like to sleep….zzzzzzzz

 

What Venues do you like to go out too when you really want to have some fun?

It's that time again to show you what I've been up to with my hair. I decided to go back to locs! Loc's are something I have always loved my for hair, they are so easy to have. They don't require that much up-keep and really fits in with my lifestyle. I can just get up go as I please, re-locing my hair is by far one of the best decisions I've made in a long time.

If you have type 4 hair or 4c hair then you know how difficult it is to keep up with your hair, especially if your already short on time. My natural hair is very tightly coiled and required tons of nurture and care to keep it healthy.

I'm not about that life anymore. In fact all I want to do is wash and go.

Yep, just get up and go 🙂

I started my locs with the two strand twists method, I did not do them myself but decided to go to a loctician to start them for me. Hey, maybe one day I'll learn to do them on my own. But until then I'm going to the stylist to have them re-twisted.

I wish I would have posted on here a lot earlier and showed you guys my 1 month and 2 month loc journey.

But I didn't,  so I'm hoping this 3 month loc journey update will suffice  going forward. 🙂

Tell me have you thought about starting loc's before?

Or better yet do you have loc's?

 

I would love to know!

So my son recently got a gift from his Nana called the Flexi Puzzle from Brainwright. This one toy is definitely a brain teaser of a game that will for sure have your mind bending in all sorts of ways. Especially if you're not the type to use your brain on mind-bending toys.

Like I haven't in awhile. 🙂

This Flexi Puzzle was bought for my youngest son to use but the thought of him concentrating on something more than 5 minutes like a toy. Is something that has never really interested him unless it's some sort of computer game. So to have him sit and figure something out on a puzzle was way too much work for him if you let him tell it.

 

In a hurry read more about the Flexi Puzzle here ——-> Click Here!

Just the sight of it was too funny, how he just threw to the side after a minute or so. But that did not stop me from playing with it. I love toys, in fact I'm quite the kid around here and I really don't mind putting things together and figuring stuff out. I'm no engineer, but hey I do get a kick out  of just plain o'l fun.

Check it out after a little while of practice I was able to master quite a few of the mind-bending twist and turns of this brainwright Flexi puzzle.

See!

After awhile my middle son decided to pick it up and give it go, but this kid was knocking them out left and right from the very beginning! I mean he was a full master from the start. Lol…

I sort of got jealous for second and realized this kid has a natural gift of putting things together and taking them apart. I mean hey he was a lego fanatic for the longest time and really into Kinect's for a while.

Do your kids love stem toys, my boys love them and this little flexi puzzle is really quite addictive. I found myself keeping it in my purse to see if I could master all the levels  that came in the book as shown here.

 

This Flexi Puzzle by Brainwright includes 4 different levels of difficulty, 80 Challenges, a 12 cube flexi puzzle and is great for those 8 and up like my boys.

Just like the packaging says this brain-bending puzzle is hard to put down!

 

I couldn't stop! 🙂

 

Check out some other mind bending toys below your kids are sure to love!

Today was a long day for me with school starting back this past month. I have been homeschooling two of my kids with two in public school. I also have been working a little more than part-time with my husband at our car lot. Since one of our employees decided to leave. So, I have been forced to pick up the extra slack until we hire someone in the clerical position and get them trained to point of proficiency.

Tired is an understatement….

Running around in a car throughout the week is not how I like to spend most of my time. So when I get home and the other kids still have homework, and dinner needs to be cooked and little mouths are yelling Ma, Ma.

I'm like please, one sec, just give me a minute.

Lol 😉

I don't have to go in tomorrow so I'm for sure  I'll have a better day tomorrow.

via GIPHY

 

 

 

I'm sure most mom's have this moment at least once a week.
