This week is a very exciting week for me. It is because I cook meals that are not common in our household. My boys are complaining that we eat the same food. This week is different.
I cooked the lasagna for the first time last night. I have the feeling that I know that I will screwed up. The lasagna did not turned out just like what I watch in the video. My lasagna is a little watery. I am glad that still my family ate the lasagna. My boys really liked it. Even my summer babe ate it. She even did not break out despite having a dairy product allergy. I also ate it though I am not full. I also served it with salad and garlic bread.
I am missing the mozerella cheese but I add it while cooking
I found a recipe online. There is also a video. I watch the video while preparing for the lasagna. This the recipe and ingredients that you will need.
My first time to cook lasagna. I am so proud of myself.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 (32 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
32 ounces cottage cheese
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dried parsley
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
9 lasagna noodles
1/2 cup water
In a large skillet over medium heat brown the ground beef. Drain the grease. Add spaghetti sauce and simmer for 5 minutes. In a large bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese, eggs, half of the grated Parmesan cheese, dried parsley, salt and ground black pepper. To assemble, in the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish evenly spread 3/4 cup of the sauce mixture. Cover with 3 uncooked lasagna noodles, 1 3/4 cup of the cheese mixture, and 1/4 cup sauce. Repeat layers twice. Top with 3 noodles, remaining sauce, remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Add 1/2 cup water to the edges of the pan. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F(175 degrees C) oven for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
I am not a good cook but I am willing to learn. My husband is complaining that we are eating the same food. He wants to eat something else. It is not easy cooking when one of your family member has the food allergy.
I ask him what does he wants to eat. I also ask the kids what food they want to eat. These are the lists of the food that my family wants to eat. I make a list for the week. My first time. I hope that I can keep it every week so it is easy for me to prepare the entire meals for the week.
Here are the list of the food that my family wants to eat. On Monday we will have lasagna. We will have the tuna casserole on Tuesday. We will have scallop potatoes on Wednesday. We will have ham on Thursday. We will have the broccoli casserole on Friday. We will have hotdogs and hamburgers on Saturday. We will have the meatloaf on Friday.
I also search for the simple recipes on them on the internet before I will buy the ingredients. I am very excited for the change of our meals to eat. I have to prepare something else for my summer babe because most of the food she can eat. I am happy that our local grocery store has a big sale this week. It helps me to prepare the meals easily.
How about you? How do you prepare your meals. Do you make a list on what food to cook? Do you buy what is on sale in your local store?

Sometimes my hubby will take me out for lunch date. We have not try going out during dinner date. I would love to experience it with someday like on our wedding anniversary.
My friends told me some beautiful restaurants and delicious food to eat especially during a very special occasion. I admit I love listening to music while spending the best time with your husband or boyfriend. I wish my husband will take me to a place where there is a band playing. I am sure that the musician use this baggs for him to have a comfortable time singing at the same time entertaining the people who enjoy eating their food and celebrating especial occasion.
I baked this apple pie for the first time last year. I do not know what was the occasion. It was fun preparing because my family helped each other. I think that it is the best part for me.
My first time to bake an apple pie
This Sunday one of my sister in-law is inviting us for brunch for Easter. I ask her what could I bring. She said I could bring a dessert. I think of bringing an apple pie. I am not sure if it is an Easter dessert.
I will bake it. I cannot wait how it will turn out. I am not a good in baking. I love to try to never give up. How about you? Where do you spend your Easter? What is your favorite Easter dessert?
A furniture is very important for every home or business. It adds beauty to space in your home or business. It also adds comfort for people while wait or relaxing.
I know my husband wants to buy new furniture. He really is searching for a leather couch. I like some of the displays in the Baker Furniture. They have colors that I am attracted and really wants to buy. I will ask my husband what he thinks of it. We might buy it if we get our income tax return.
How about you? Are you renovating your house? Are you looking for new furniture? Why not check out this website?
I love it when hubby and I have our lunch date. It feels great when just the two of us spending time without the kids. It seldom happens but I always looking forward for it every time.
One of our favorite restaurant to dine
the creamy mushroom soup is soooooooo good
Kalamata restaurant is our favorite. It is an American Greek foods that they served. They have a lot of costumers every time we dined. Hubby ordered a chicken wrap. I ordered a cream of mushroom soup. I also have the chicken, rice, peas and bread. It is so delicious. The prices are affordable too.
I love that this chicken is almost shaped like a heart
How about you? Do you spend time with just you and your husband like a date?

Intimate dinner is always romantic when just the two of you were eating without your kids. Couples need alone time spending time with just each other. Sometimes my husband will treat me for lunch date. We never dine out alone together at night-time. It is always during lunch time when the kids are in school.
I still remember back in 2001 when he proposed to me. It was after breakfast time by the beach. I was speechless. I wonder if he bought my engagement here at platinum rings from joyjewelers.com. The ring was beautiful. I really loved it. I still have it somewhere in our room.
Most business owners don’t give any thought to their traytop paper. The joke is on them, however, because mediocre paper can result in a high level of customer complaints as people rip, shred and have their foodstuffs leak through them. If you want to avoid this calamity, here are just a few tips for buying the right kind of traytop paper.

Look For Experience
Don’t buy your paper from a new and untested company. Look for a business that’s been in the industry for decades, somewhere with employees that have been honing their skills through customer feedback year after year.
Think About Material
Not all traytop paper is truly paper. Sometimes the pulp can be mixed with plastic or even resin for a sturdier, more durable product. If you’re working somewhere like a hospital or a high-volume restaurant, you might want to consider a blend of materials.
Know Your Price Range
Since traytop paper is bought in bulk, it’s critically important that you sit down with your budget and figure out just how much it can stretch. Will you get a better deal buying 100 or 500 sheets? How much does it cost for each individual sheet? Are there any special discounts offered by the company?
These are just a few things to keep in mind when buying traytop paper. It may seem like a trivial decision, but it can actually have a huge impact on your level of customer satisfaction. Click here to learn more about traytop paper and other similar products.
Growing up in the Philippines, we always have a soup eve it is excruciating warm. I get used to having soup even if it is 90 degrees especially at lunch time. I shared that story to my husband and he thinks that we Filipinos are crazy. He said that in America, you only have a soup when it is cold outside.
soup for the cold day
It was very cold that day. I made a pot of soup. I just get a bowl and warm up the soup next time if I want to eat it. I bought bones from the pig. My husband thinks that his wife is weird. I know that I am weird but that is how we Filipinos make our soup.
I also bought vegetables called bokchoy. I added ginger, soy sauce with the pig bones. It turned our delicious but sadly I am the only who eats it. Lucky for me. Soup is also great with a steaming white rice.
How about you? Do you cook soup when it is very cold outside? What is your favorite soup to make?
There are times that when we are eating dinner, we are watching TV as well. I love watching music. One of my favorite musical show is the American Idol. It is reality show for future musicians to shine like a star. I love music and loves to watch any musical show too. My favorite part of this reality show is when they are picking the top ten to perform live with the entire American audience nationwide. The contestants are the best singers among the group.You can see them practice their performance in the studio. I am sure that one of those contestants want to own a Pro Tools Express. This will them perform like a professional musicians.
