Week 38 Monday (9/29/14)

Recipe Review

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

         Lasagna is one of my favorite Italian foods. Lasagna dates as far back as the Greeks and Romans, which makes is darn old. The Greeks named it after the words “dish or bowl”, but the Romans figured out the whole layering thing.  I think the reason this is such a great dish is I love the layering of pasta, sauce, and cheese. The cheese is the best part for me because life would be boring without cheese in almost every meal.

I know I blew this one on the last day. I went to my class reunion and eating a regular dinner of salad w/dressing, chicken, mashed potatoes, and prime rib and then top it off with a full calorie Sprite ruined the week.  But, I’ll take a one tenth of a pound gain for the amount of fun that I had. Oh well, tomorrow we begin again.

Wants and Wishes

         I wish my favorite TV shows were on all year. One of the things I have trouble with are the lulls between seasons, and the lack of shows that I truly enjoy.
