Awesome Spaghetti Sauce

I have always been the kind of person who makes her spaghetti from a box or a jar. Well, last night I was CRAVING spaghetti. I looked online, found a recipe, and fell in LOVE!

Easy Spaghetti Sauce

1 15 oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1/4 onion, diced
3 garlic gloves, diced
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp salt

1. Saute the onions in a little vegetable oil until translucent, about 5 minutes.
2. Add garlic and cook 2-3 minutes.
3. Add all of the other ingredients and simmer on LOW for 45 minutes, up to an hour and a half. The longer you simmer it, the better it tastes.

*I added pre-made frozen meatballs the last 30 minutes and served it over spaghetti.

Jen and Brad's wedding

This past weekend, I was in a wedding of a really good friend from high school. I was the maid (matron?!) of honor AND I did the wedding cake! I will never do that again! Well, except for Jen but then again a bridesmaid doesn't do much in a mormon wedding ;)

I stayed up WAY late the night before the wedding decorating the cake and woke up WAY early the next morning so that I could finish decorating it, get my hair and makeup done, and finish getting ready for the wedding.

Mike drove all the way down the Spring on Friday night after work to help me with the cake. I don't know what I would have done without him! He was helping me ice the cake and when I had my back to him, he wrote this on the cake for me. He is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me. :D
