Some Food For Thought

Mmmm.... Homemade lasagna. I made this recently for a small get-together here at the house. I think lasagna gets a bad rap; it isn't hard to make at all. You just have to allot yourself a little extra time to layer the foods... It was gooo-oood, if I do say so myself!

We made a recent trip to the casino and stopped for a few drinks and a snack at the sports bar. They have these GIANT PRETZELS, and when I say giant, I'm not kidding. This pretzel served our table of five. I am addicted to Pretzel Time and Auntie Anne's pretzels at the mall, and this one was great. It wasn't as greasy as some of those malls pretzels, which was good. It is so huge, it comes to the table dangling from a metal rack. I'd never seen something like that before.

Okay, so this isn't really food, but some people play with their food, and these are all of the cat toys that were discovered in my apartment during my recent move. Most were found under the couch, some behind the washer and dryer, and a few tucked into corners of the closet. I think I ended up leaving a few that I couldn't reach behind the refrigerator. Freakin' cats.


And, last but not least, documentation that Dave paid out on a dare while we were waiting to be seated at the local Long Horn Restaurant. In case you've never been there, the servers drag this saddle out to tables for birthdays and make the victims... err, guests of honor... mount the saddle while the entire restaurant sings to them. I love those types of restaurants (twitch, twitch). Anyway, Dr. Mike dared Dave to climb up on the saddle and act like he was lasso-ing something - - and here's the evidence.

You know, I bet Dave really regrets the day he got me the Treo.... Camera phone paparazzi extraordinaire!

I think that pretzel is just the end result of Dave trying to lasso something.

BTW, that lasagna looks great! I think it's more fun to make than it is to eat. :)

The sole reason I've never tried to make lasagna is my sister tells me it's a giant pain in the ass. Well, plus I'm remarkably lazy. I'll just come over and eat yours.

Mike looks THRILLED in the pretzel pic......

and one of my tips for lasagna making......don't boil the noodles. Add a jar of water to the sauce you use and layer that way, let set in fridge for 6-8 hours, then bake.......sooooo easy!!

The lasagna looks wonderful. I haven't had lasagna in years. The pic really makes me want some now.

Yep, I find lots of cat toys too. LOL!

I LOVE pretzels! Every time I go to the mall I have to chant "I do not need a pretzel" over and over again :)

Great pic of Dave. Too funny.

Thanks honey, for posting my proudest moments.

Your lasagna is second to none... plus it's the first thing you ever cooked for me, which makes it REALLY special. Second thing, of course, was Poppy Dogs. :)

I make several lasagnas a year, being schooled in the Italian culinary arts from a young age. It is a huge pain in the ass. And expensive, frankly. But ohhhh so worth it AND even better as a leftover.

My mom makes an amazing white broccoli lasagna that costs like $40 to make but is worth every bite and weighs about 10 pounds.

If you flip the pretzel picture upside down, it looks like an alien eating Mike C.

That picture of Dave was not nearly as embarrassing as if you'd waited 8 seconds later-- after the saddle bucked him off!
