E woke up at 5:00 a.m. this morning with a serious boost of energy! I know I looked like a zombie and probably was absolutely no fun to play with but she seemed to have a good time playing by herself. Which brings us to 12:15 p.m. E barely ate any of her lunch (she did have a huge breakfast) and it took her all of 2 minutes to pass out as soon as she was laying on the couch. I picked her up and put her in her crib without waking her up and that never happens! Somebody was tired!! I’m not sure if this is going to be a continuous thing and I am crossing my fingers it’s not but I’d have to say she has been an angel all day long.
So here I am a little on the exhausted side trying to figure out what I want to eat for lunch and a little on the bummed side. I tried the Lasagna out of the Deceptively Delicious book and didn’t add the puree‘s just so I could see if I liked the recipe before I added deception 🙂 It wasn’t exactly my favorite thing in the world. This recipe is quite different from the way that my family usually makes lasagna so I was going into it with an ehh kind of mood. She uses cottage cheese and we use ricotta, she uses mozzarella and we use cheddar (and lots of it!!), she uses canned whole tomatoes pureed and we use tomato sauce (again LOTS of it!). I think I’ll stick to my version of lasagna and see if I can add deception that way. The way that she instructs you to make the meat it clumped it all together so it made it hard to spread out evenly in the pan, and the tomato wholes made it watery and not really saucy. The other thing I wasn’t to crazy about was that it was kind of bland. I think I would double the amount of garlic that she put in and maybe some other italian spices.
So far it’s the only recipe that I have tried that I don’t like! So I am not giving up, but I am making my own homemade lasagna 🙂
B has been amazing all day today. When he woke up and realized that E and I had been up since 5:00 a.m. he made breakfast for me, cleaned it up, took care of E when she needed attention, made her lunch, cleaned it up, and is now making me lunch. 😀 I am the luckiest girl in the world. He is even making tea (with the help of my instructions). What an amazing guy.
B plans on watching football all afternoon, and I’ll be watching the Steelers game tonight!! GO STEELERS!! And I am crossing my fingers E stays the little angel that she has been all morning so we can continue to have a completely lazy day (hopefully including a nap for me!)
I’ll be more interesting tomorrow, I promise 😉
