There are days I just want to be at home. Sit in the den and read while Aja stares and casts judgement. I'm so ready to retire and I know I need to get out of that mindset. Fact is, we need to work a few more years so we won't have a rusty retirement. I heard that term and noticed it wasn't a great situation so......yeah, a few more years ought to handle it.
Lately some of our meals have been fantastic. Many have been saved in my new meal planning notebook. After putting this one off for a while I finally prepared this slow cooker lasagna on the weekend. The slow cooker recipes have been calling my name but so many of them cook for only 5 to 6 hours.
That just doesn't work when we are gone for at least 9 hours. Have you ever come home to something overcooked in a crock pot? It's awful because you planned on that being dinner.
So, I decided I wanted to make this spinach mushroom lasagna and just planned it for a weekend. That way we had leftovers for Monday.
It was great. Ooey, cheesy, the noddles were cooked just perfectly.
I'm feeling exceptionally lazy so I just took a snap of the recipe from my notebook. If we find a recipe we want to include in regular meal rotations I slide it into a plastic sleeve and add it to my growing collection. The plastic protection sleeve is great for spills, you can just wipe them off.
I leave you with a photo of the moon on a warm November afternoon. I couldn't get my phone out in time to capture the jet as it seemed to pass in front of the moon.
Hopefully everyone will enjoy Thanksgiving and will share the photos and recipes at Beth Fish Reads Weekend Cooking series.
