Yesterday was very low-key for Nora and I. We didn't have the entertainment of little Camella, but she should be here this morning, any minute. Instead, Nora and I read books, played and made a lasagna using a recipe I found on this site. It was delicious, and we'll be eating leftovers for a few days, but I wasn't so sure when the recipe started out like this:
For those of you who know me, I'm not exactly known as a meat-lover. I cook it maybe once a month- and chicken at that. Granted, this wasn't red meat, just ground turkey and sweet Italian sausage, but it was still a little disconcerting for me as I browned it. The finished product, however, was worth it. It was delicious and will taste even better when I heat up a piece for lunch. Somehow I don't think tofu would have tasted quite the same.
I didn't get a picture of the finished product- I literally pulled it from the oven and cut into it for myself. I was going swimming within the hour and wanted to eat as far before the swim as possible. Believe me, though, it was beautiful.
Nora was so great the whole time I was cooking. She spent some time in her favorite jungle gym:
and did some cooking with her pots and pans:
This morning I thought I'd snap a few more pictures for the blog. Our phone died during the last thunderstorm and hasn't recovered, so it officially became Nora's new toy this morning. Notice she hasn't quite figured out the difference between the base and the receiver...
