Odd Occurences

Did I mention that my mom and I doubled up again? When I called her on Friday, we were talking about what we were making for dinner. She said, "O, I made bread today"; and I responded, "O really, so did I." Then I said, "Yeah, I had to stock up my freezer for lunches again now that Travis is back to work, so I decided to make lasagna." There was a pause. A moment of silence. She said "No way. I made lasagna for dinner too". So there you have. One brilliant mom and one well-trained protoge thinking alike.
This time however, I decided to try my friend Becky's way...apparently her mom rolls her lasagna noodles and then stands them up in the pan. This works fantastic for crowds because there is no waiting for the lasagna to cool before cutting-- it is already in portions. This I thought would work for feeding a hungry husband too. So I boiled the non-bakeable noodles and then rolled all the noodles with cheese as pictured below. It worked great and it tasted amazing. I haven't had lasagna in goodness knows when (more than a year and a half). I normally don't eat it because of my wheat intolerance/cheese intolerance, but I couldn't resist last night. And since I know that if I am really hungry, it doesn't affect me as much, I was basically shaking before dinner, I was so hungry. O but it was worth the wait. The creamy herbed (low fat) cheese in homemade sauce that was perfectly spiced, flavored and aged...ahh. Italian heaven.
