Another Ridiculously Easy Meal

This is what I do every non-fasting Sunday for common meal:

A bag of frozen ravioli. Dump this into the crock pot, frozen. A jar of pasta sauce. Dump this in as well. Plug in, and turn on high, and in about 3 hours (the time it takes for Sunday School and Liturgy), it will all be perfect.

Oh, and just so anyone can know, Lasagna noodles, even the regular kind, do NOT have to be pre-cooked unless you barely put any sauce on your lasagna.

And did you know, that a can of plain pumpkin and a box of cake mix (spice cake is delish) such as dark fudge chocolate makes an excellent low fat, very moist and not at all rubbery (lenten) cake?

I know your recipes are for home, but this is mighty similar (and since Memorial Day is nigh upon us, her you go):

A standard Boy Scout dessert is a warmed can of pie cherries in a Dutch oven, followed by chocolate cake batter. Line the dutch oven with foil first, then spray with Pam. Cook over a dozen coals of a campfire for about 1/2 hour, with half a dozen coals on top. Top with whipped cream if desired. Makes for contented Scouts, and it's darned easy.

You could probably do the same thing in a Pyrex in the oven, but remember to warm the cherries first.

I have a question for you, Morning Coffee. You say that you are Orthodox Christian, I was wondering what region of the world you are in and what "version" of Orthodox you are. Your blog is very interesting and fun to read!
