Whenever I make lasagna, I always have lasagna noodles leftover. It is annoying in that there were not enough for another lasagna. So I have always put the leftover noodles in a tub in the fridge so I would forget them and then throw away three days later.
I had an inspiration:
There are enough noodles for one and a HALF lasagna.
I would give you a recipe but I am just happy I am not throwing away those noodles. I put spinach in the ricotta layer for the health benefits.
What do you do with one and a half lasagnas? I put some in the freezer so yohboh could have them for lunch.
I like to relax watching cooking shows. Do you? I find it utterly soporific to watch Nigella Lawson make food. So I was drowsily watching some British person making something called a fish pie.
This morning, I realized we had quite a bit of leftover fish and shrimp from last night's dinner so I made
fish pie. Now to sell it to the kids I called it mashed potato pie. And they ate it. Yohboh was a little cautious about it but he ended up liking it as well.
I improvised with what I had, which is what a casserole is, improvised dinner.

I have a well developed sense of humor and a poorly developed sense of spacial relations.
I share too much, which is why I need to blog to edit before I over share with people how often I poop and how I saw my first gray hair at 24 AND IT WAS NOT ON MY HEAD.
I had a child on February 2007 I had another child in October of 2011. My life has not been the same. It has gotten a lot better.
