The lasagna wasn't that great. I am sad at its giant-ness and lack of tomato-y yumminess. I made everything from scratch--including the noodles which was a debacle in itself, but oh well. This might be the last time I stray from Betty Crocker when making lasagna. Here is the recipe that I was not impressed with--there was far too much, the directions sucked balls, and maybe I should have added the cinnamon that was called for, but that just creeped me out. P.S. Did I mention that there was FAR TOO MUCH? At least my dessert rocked. As did the baby arugula salad with yummy vinaigrette here.
Even though I miss WI, miss my little sister and my mom and dad and my friends, I love my kitchen. I love cooking in my kitchen. LOVE IT!!!
I am looking forward to the end of the holidays to get back into routines--including tracking points hard-core, working out on a schedule (including classes--my gym is finally starting "Body Pump" classes!), and job hunting/trying to figure out my future.
Happy holidays everyone. I hope you are all wonderful, safe, and happy with all of your loved ones.
