Well, it's my last day at work. It's a little bittersweet. While I'm very happy and excited to be making this transition into a new part of my life, I am a little sad to be leaving the people who have meant so much to me for my entire adult life until now. I have been with this company since I was 19 years old. I love them like a second family.

I have about three hours left. The crew took me out for lunch at Olive Garden (my favorite restaurant). They gave me a cake from Cretia's (mmmm good)! And they gave me a beautiful cross necklace from James Avery. They have been so good to me and to Joseph. I will miss these people dearly.

On a lighter note, I'm looking forward to a few days off. I'm going to visit some family and I'm very excited! And then next Wednesday I step into a whole new world.

Love to all!

New recipe that Joseph LOVES!

I have found a new recipe that Joseph loves. It's in a book called Taste of Home Casseroles Slow Cooker & Soups that was given to us by Kathleen for a wedding gift.

Here it is. It is a must try!

Meat Lover's Pizza Bake

1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped green pepper (of course, I didn't use this)
1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
1 package (3-1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni, chopped
1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained (of course, I didn't use this either)
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup biscuit/baking mix
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk

In a large skillet, cook beef and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the pizza sauce, pepperoni and olives. Transfer to a greased 11-in x 7-in x 2-in banking dish. Sprinkle with cheese.

In a small bowl, combine the biscuit mix, eggs and milk until blended. Pour evenly over cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 400 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Yield 6 servings.


ps. I'm making another casserole dish out of this book on Friday...if it turns out good and if Joseph likes it, I'll post the recipe.

New Job Cont.

I have formally accepted their offer - so the company I will be working for is McClure, Duffee and Eitzen, LLP. Their website is

As far as I know I will be a family law paralegal for a couple of junior associates that have been without a paralegal for over a year. I think they might start me out with Kelly McClure, the partner, just to immerse me in the way they run their law office. I am very excited and a little nervous. I just have to get things tied up with Scott's office and then I'll take a break for a few days and visit some family and then on to a new adventure starting September 9, 2009!
