Hi, Friends!! Happy Sunday! How’s your new iPhone 6? DO you love it?
I am going to chill with my 5S until it breaks. If my mom can still use a flip phone and be happy with it, well then… I think I just made my point.
SO, how’s your weekend so far?
My weekend was (read: is always) very loud. If I could just sum it up for you, it would sound a little somethin’ like this; Anaaaaaaaaaa EAT! Aleksandraaaaaaaaaaaa STOP! Goceeeeeeeeeee!!!! …I scream his name just because.
Hit the “repeat” button and that is me, all wrapped up in weekend-fun!
Speaking of repeat. Yesterday, I sang my heart out to MMMMBop by Hanson. My inner 90’s-self is still SO happy!
Speaking of Happy! Pasta-Sundays is where happy lives.
We all know the deal around here. I take a classic recipe and add feta cheese to it, spinach, too, take a picture of it and eat. Ridiculous, I know, but always delicious.
I have been making *this* lasagna recipe for years now, but it wasn’t until last year that I finally tried a lasagna in the crock pot. WHOA! Life.Changing.
Wait. Do you call it a slow cooker? Yah, I do, too, but most people “google” crock pot. I imagine you might be in that large sum of “most people”.
But, really, I wish I hadn’t waited that long to try slow cooked lasagna because,
A) Your house will smell insanely GOOD!
B) You will want to eat it immediately
C) It’s so easy, your 10 year old can make it.
Those no-boil lasagna noodles have literally changed my life. It’s like I’m saving myself at least 22.4 minutes every time I make lasagna for dinner. In this instance, I saved you and I a huge step in the way that we will prepare this lovely dinner.
All you will need to do is gather your ingredients, throw them in the crock pot in the order that I have given, and that’s it. That’s all. That’s a wrap. No stirring, no boiling, no rinsing, no waiting, no no no! Just place everything in the pot and walk away.
Come back in 4 hours to eat.
