Ever since my mom died, my family has been doing a family dinner on Sunday (almost) every week, rotating whose turn it is to cook (and often, so far, featuring Mom recipes). Yesterday was my turn, and I decided for some reason to make lasagna. (Which may have been a bad idea in 90 degree weather.) I also decided, for some stupider reason, instead of just making two tray of lasagna, to make two different lasagnas, one meat and one veggie, so I was cooking for about 4-4.5 hours (the vegetable one is much more complicated, but delicious).
Now I have about 12 slices of lasagna left over. I guess it's a good thing they are two different types. On the plus side, while I was my cooking my boyfriend cleaned a lot of my apartment, which is something I've not exactly been doing. So that was really nice. --- "To truly live, one must first be born." ~ Evan [aX] Paper Mario Social: The Safe Haven of GameFAQs. (Board 2000083)
A friend at my last job gave me a parting lasagna as a going away gift. I ate it for every meal for about 6 days, with the exception of one night where I went to a friend's house for dinner, where we had lasagna. Afterwards, I came home and ate another slice in bed.
It truly was one of the best weeks of my life. --- Ocarinakid
You guys seriously don't get sick of lasagna leftovers? That week would be a nightmare for me. I'd invent a project that I needed a lot of people to come help me with, just so I could serve them that blasted lasagna.
I'm maybe getting a little sick of it. But the fact that my two trays taste very different, and it's only once a day, makes it work out. --- "To truly live, one must first be born." ~ Evan [aX] Paper Mario Social: The Safe Haven of GameFAQs. (Board 2000083)
Wouldn't be sick of it, no. I often eat a lot of repeat meals. So far the standard fare here is cereal or oatmeal for breakfast, pbj and fruit for lunch, and either spaghetti or brown rice veggie stir fry for dinner. That applies to... at least 50% of all meals on the lunch and dinner side. Breakfast more like 85%.
Snacks of varying things occur throughout the day, though, like yogurt, chips and salsa, some junk food now and then, and a boat load of bread. --- SIGNATURE
I usually eat a pretty boring lunch (peanut butter and probably a *little* nutella on whole wheat), but I change up the kinds of fruits/vegetables I bring for throughout the day. Right now it's apples because screw it and red bell peppers. I usually like to do a bag of fresh spinach, but in the heat that is dicey. --- Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both. -Mimir
