So, Eric is back in Denver dealing with 'He Who Shall Remain Unnamed So That I May Avoid the Use of Extreme Profanity'. While I do miss him, I also enjoy a bit of time to myself. Sadly, most of my time has been spent cleaning. But, I like a clean home so it's a win/win.

I contemplated going out to dinner on my own tonight. With all my traveling for my previous job, dining alone is something I'm used to and rather enjoy. However, I thought it would be a nice gesture to cook something that Eric could enjoy tomorrow when he gets home.
|EVOO and 4 cloves of garlic|
So, lasagna it is.

I don't cook on a regular basis. And when I do cook it is QUITE rare that I use the same recipe twice. I look at cooking as a challenge and I don't find it challenging to make the same thing more than once.
|Parmesan, Mozzarella, and Fontina = Cheesy Goodness!|
So, while this is not the healthiest lasagna I've ever made, I'm hoping it is delicious. It's currently cooling on the counter. Therefore, I must make this a short blog...my tummy is rumbling!

Eric...I hope this gives you FOUR things to look forward to tomorrow...me, Grace, Cyrus, and homemade lasagna with ingredients from your garden!
|I hope it tastes as good as it looks! Ciao!|
