Evening Snack

Allright, allright, I confess! Tonight’s supper didn’t make my blog, not because I had leftovers or because I ate out, not even because I had a repeat meal. Nope. That would’ve been too easy and wouldn’t have called for a confession! I didn’t post tonight’s supper simply because it didn’t fit the healthy bill, or the monthly indulgence.

Lasagna – Fail Squared!

I had a bunch of (not so anymore) fresh tomatoes that I needed to use quickly, some zucchinis and a load of cottage cheese that will expire at the end of the week. I didn’t have to think very long to come up with a plan… Vegetable Lasagna!

Alas, it looks like lasagna isn’t my forte! Again, I ended up with WAY too much water at the bottom of the pan. Must be all the fresh vegetables rendering their water. And, not only that, I find the taste was also way too tomatoey. I wouldn’t call this a success, although my daughter did say that it was very good, the only thing she didn’t appreciate was the fact that the onions were too big (did I ever mention she HATES onions? Yet, she LOVES onion soup… I’ll never get that one!)

I used 3 kinds of noodles, Spinach, Whole Wheat and plain white. Now THAT, I really liked.

Anyway, looks like I will have to try my hand at lasagna again, so still no recipe to share. Sorry…

Salad with Cottage Cheese

As soon as I was done working out this morning, I started cooking for Christmas and finished only at 9 tonight. Needless to say I didn’t feel like cooking supper after that. Besides, I wasn’t really hungry, as I spent the entire day tasting this and tasting that, and, for some reason, even if I don’t really eat all that much while cooking, the constant sight and smell of food tends to make me feel like I’ve done nothing but eat and kind of suppresses my appetite.

So this is what I had for supper. That very salad is what I have for lunch every single weekday. Just like that. No dressing, nothing. The cottage cheese sort of plays that role. Of course, I vary the vegetables, but that’s roughly what it looks like. Fresh!
