Manicures by Mae Mae

One of the perks of my mom's job as a flight attendant (or are you a stewardess now? I can't keep all the PC rules straight!) is that she gets layovers in Atlanta every now and then.
She had a 15 hour one on Sunday so Josie and I went and kidnapped her and held her captive in our house!
I love having my parents at my house.
There is something kind of odd about it though. I feel like I'm not old enough to own a house, or have a child for that matter, when they are around!
I made Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Shells (recipe at the bottom of the post!) that was super yummy and my mom brought me a bottle of wine!
Which I'm glad she did since our friends that used to always bring wine over are expecting Baby Mabes!
While I cooked, Josie and Mae Mae played; AKA - Josie drug my mom all over the house showing her everything!

And of course, what is a visit with Mae Mae without a manicure!?!? 15 hours is not nearly a long enough visit though. So hurry back Mae Mae!

Spinach Stuffed Shells

1 Bag Frozen Spinach (thawed and drained)
2 Eggs (lightly whipped)
1 Cup Ricotta Cheese (I use Cottage Cheese)
2 Cups Parm Cheese (divided)
1 Jar Spaghetti Sauce
12 Jumbo Shells (cooked) (and I used about 15)

Cook Jumbo Shells according to package. Mix spinach, eggs, ricotta cheese, and 1 1/2 cups parm cheese together. Scoop 2 Tablespoons of the cheese mixture into each shell and arrange in a baking dish. Cover with Spaghetti Sauce (I mixed some garlic and oregano into my sauce since we really like garlic!).

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Sprinkle remaining parm cheese on top and let it melt for a couple minutes.

This recipe took about 15 minutes to whip up, feed 4 people with some left over, and gave us a good helping of spinach!

You have no idea how much I am missing those bottles of wine too! Glad you got your fix.

That's nice that you get little impromptu visits with your mom! I have a similar recipe for stuffed shells and I love them! I will have to add spinach next time.
