Pizza Casserole

This is way too much food for hubby and me so we will have left-overs for days!!!  If our daughter and her family comes by, they are more than welcome to take some home ... Their daughters will probably love it.

I saw this recipe on the Southernplate website and had to give it a try.  It was simple, only took a few ingredients, and is very tasty.  Quicker than trying to make a pizza because I didn't have to deal with making pizza dough although making Pizza dough in my Zojirushi bread maker will be a project that I plan to tackle later this week.  Here's the Recipe:

Pizza Casserole

2 pounds ground beef, browned and drained (I used ground turkey)
1 box penne pasta
2 jars pizza sauce
1/2 an onion (add to the meat while browning)
1 tsp garlic powder*
2 cups mozzarella cheese (or more)
1 pack of slice pepperoni
Salt and pepper (to taste)

Prepare pasta according to package direction. Drain water and set aside.  Mix pasta, sauces, hamburger and 1 cup of the pepperoni together and put into a lightly greased 9" x 13" baking pan.

Put more pepperoni on top, if desired, or just stir it all in.

Cover with cheese cheese is melted and bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling.

So Sad

My husband and I were at the mall with our two little grands (ages 4 years and 1 1/2 years) a couple of weeks ago and we were having a really great time with them.  I was in 'MeMaw Heaven', using my iPad Pro to snap pictures of them as they rode the various kiddie rides in the mall.  I set my bag down for just an instant to help the 1 1/2 year old get into one of the little cars, went back to my bag to get my iPad Pro to resume filming and taking pictures and, POOF!!! ... just like that, my iPad Pro had been taken from my bag.  I was just devastated!!!

I had years of memories stored on that iPad. I started buying them from the very first generation and upgraded each time a new one was introduced.  Even though I synch my iPad to my desktop on a regular basis, there are still files that had yet to be synced.  I wish I had the pictures I took of my little grands at the mall.  I had installed the 'Find my iPad App' on it but it only works if the person who took possession of it goes on-line.  I went to iCloud and added a 'lock' code so that it will lock it if anyone is able to access the Internet on it.  It was password protected so, hopefully, whoever took it will not be able to gain access to my information.
