sunday night dinner: july 10, 2011—spinach lasagna rolls

growing up lasagna was one of my favorite meals.  i’ll eat any kind hot or cold leftovers.  i was a cook once in an italian restaurant in one day i made 14 large lasagna for catering.  after that making any form of the baked pasta feels like nothing.  lasagna rolls however are a great quick fix when i’m wanting the real deal without all the work or quantity of a lasagna.

that night for dinner my friend alaina came over.  we discussed our desire to eat only organic and all natural but how our tiny budgets don’t allow us to.  my up-coming trip back home.  what art projects we are working on, music projects of various friends and then we spent the rest of the night playing with the cats. we are both crazy cat girls.
