Happy Father's Day!

I have mentioned before that I went through a divorce and have remarried. So, sometimes, I find myself doing things that are only for my son's.
My youngest son wanted to cook his Dad something for dinner. Tonight, he went with his Dad and will be there until Monday morning. Last week, when he suggested, my first thought to myself was no way, I am going to cook for my ex husband. However, I will do it for my son.

Here is the recipe that we cooked. Should you try this at home you will need the following items.
Preheat oven at 350f
  • One pound of hamburger
  • onion
  • green pepper
  • Pizza sauce
  • A box of shells and cheese
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
Dice up 1/4 of the onion and green pepper. Ground up the hamburger and throw in the green pepper and onions. While that is cooking, cook the shells and cheese as directed.
After, the hamburger is cooked, add a jar of pizza sauce and mix it well. Then, toss in the shells and cheese and mix it all up. Then, add the cheddar cheese. As much or as little as you like. Mix it in. Throw it in a casserole dish and heat it up for about ten minutes or so. This recipe will feed about 4 to 5 people. Normally, I would cook some biscuits or serve sliced bread.

My son also helped me cook some cupcakes to take to his Dad's house and some left here for my husband. (his step dad)

My husband asked for this Sunday off because it's been a while since he has had more than one day off. So, it will be nice to really get to hang with him. We are thinking/debating getting an hotel room tomorrow. But only if it has a hot tub either in the room or in the pool area.

I really hope that when my kids are older and think about how their parents acted toward each other after the divorce that they will remember the small things like me providing dinner for their Dad.

I don't know what I am doing for my Dad, but I will think of something. I hope everyone has a great Father's Day.
