Afternoon = uneventful. Trip to Lowes and the grocery store. Soon enough it was dinnertime!
Karen brought over her Very Best Vegetable Lasagna. And this was the best of the best!
She usually makes it with zucchini, spinach and sun-dried tomatoes, but tonight’s version was cremini mushrooms and smoked real sliced mozzarella. It was IN-credible!!!
Due to the mushrooms [she used 2 pints of mushrooms and 2 balls of fresh mozzarella], it was very watery, but we just lifted the pieces from the water and ate away. I love this recipe because it calls for cottage cheese, which I prefer over ricotta. And the fresh mozzarella makes a huge difference!
[Edited to add: updated recipe is now posted in the comments!]
So good I had a plate of seconds!!
On the side we had sautéed broccoli in a curried chutney I received to sample.
And dessert was enjoyed to the tune to LeAnne Rimes: “How [would] I liiiiiiive without you?!”
There’s apparently a Ken Burns documentary on right now about Prohibition. We’re going to take a glimpse. Too bad we still have no couch – it’ll be two people in a one-person chair!
