Lasagna without noodles

You might think this recipe makes no sense.  Lasagna, without lasagna noodles?  Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.  I have been so hungry for lasagna.  I am avoiding sugar and carbohydrates.  I didn’t feel like messing with zucchini so I adapted my lasagna recipe and made it without noodles.  The flavor was wonderful and […]

Lasagna

Well, here we are the first day of November and it is still “Indians” Summer. I can hardly work today–I am so excited about the Indians playing in the World Series tonight with the opportunity to win it all! Last Tuesday, we were just getting started with game 1.

Chili Weather is here!

Luscious Lasagna

Hope everyone is having a great day.  We are definitely into the “comfort food” weather pattern.  The sun is shining, and that makes it better; however, I miss the warm weather already.  When I am cold I cook meals that will “stick to your bones”.    The Butcher doesn’t like too many noodles in his lasagna.
