Today saw me try to recreate my lovely lasagne from the other week. The house has been a little unwell the last few days so I have been trying to cram in as many vegetables as possible. Last night it was a delicious chicken and vegetable soup and tonight lasagne. The thing I love most about lasagne is that it makes it super easy to pile in the veggies with little to no complaints.
When my kidlets sit down to lasagne I can rest assured that they will gobble it all up and happily declare it the best meal ever. They are totally unaware of exactly how much wonderful goodness they are getting. You see my meat sauce consists of garlic, onion, capsicum, spinach, broccoli, mushroom, cauliflower, carrot, zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes. Oh and celery. And yes that's right over ten veggies all at once.
Possibly a bit of an over kill but when we are all a little run down I think the more the merrier. Plus it was more than just a little yummy. The other great thing about having lots of different ingredients is that it makes it easier to make larger quantities. We have enough lasagne for at least another three meals.
Lots going on this week. But when is there not? DD2 turns five on Saturday and we are thinking of a joint camping trip with her bestest buddy and his family. There will also be a party in the morning. All very exciting. Busy but exciting.
I also need to start doing some serious work towards the school's fortieth birthday celebrations. Agreeing to be on a committee always seems like a good idea at the time...
I could actually just curl up and go to sleep. Which would make for an incredibly early night which does have an alluring appeal. However my mum and DD1 are returning home from their weekend getaway which means a midnight airport pick up. I am just a little jealous. They got to go and hang with my beautiful sister. Thankfully she comes to visit fairly often, well she used to. I fear (but understand) that the visits may come further apart in the not too distant future.
