Week 22 Thursday (6/12/14)

Recipe Review        

Today’s Recipe and Location:                    Lasagna Rollups
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 391 calories per serving, if 20 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

Sorry, it's a little blurry!

I love it when my freezer starts to fill up - just think -
that made nine dinners (since I already tried one so I could write this review).

         OMG this is fantastic!  I loved Ree’s lasagna, but this makes eating it so easy. I counted each rollup as 1 serving. I put it in individual dishes and froze it, so I can enjoy it for a week or two. The original recipe called for 2 rollups as one serving, but one was filling and sufficient for me. A man might want two rollups as a serving. Either way, the calories are not unreasonable either way. This lasagna has so much flavor, and making it in a loaf pan kept them intact. 
         This lasagna is different than the one I previously made because that one was made with cottage cheese and this one has a ricotta mixture.  I absolutely love both recipes. This would be the perfect recipe for kids as the stay in one piece as you serve it.  This one is a real keeper.

Random Reflections - The Glorious Garden    

Japanese Maple Tree

         I love my hosta bed. I planted a fragile Japanese maple tree in the middle of the bed, because it is in a protected on three sides. This type of Japanese maple has feathery leaves and is a slow grower.
         According to my tag, this plant is called the Acer Palmatum Dissectum Atropurpureum. As I said, the leaves are a purple color and feathery. The area where I planted my tree has sun in the morning and shade the rest of the day. It is on a hill, so it has great drainage and no water sits around. When it is full grown, it could be as tall as eight feet.  Mine is still only about four feet tall and it takes a long time to reach its full height. This plant is good for the Illinois zone. I love this tree and receive many compliments on its beauty. If you have a protected area that has partial shade, then this is the tree for you.
Irksome Ideas and Images

         Skin tags are a royal pain. I don’t know at what age I discovered these little gems, or how many my dermatologist removed, but I hate these little suckers!  After talking to my doctor, I found out that anyone can have them. They are harmless but flipping annoying. I was really happy to find out that when you remove them it doesn’t make more of them grow. I hope they are gone forever and I never see any of these little growths again.  
         I can't believe I wrote about this topic.  Is this because of my age?  Am I complaining about medical issues at the age of 58?  Yikes!  Heaven help me.
