More of the same, in 2011

I had big plans to ring in the new year on this blog.  Unfortunately, after a vacation that was kind of a complete disaster thanks to all kinds of sickness, I'm barely getting the unpacking done.  Maybe next week.

Tonight I thought it might be special to have a festive meal to ring in the new year, so I made World's Best Lasagna

It takes a lot of work, but is totally worth it.  Not that my kids would agree.  The only part of the meal they didn't complain about was the homemade french bread.  In fact, while attempting to eat the mixed-greens salad I made, Ethan said, "Do they make vegetable tongue covers?"

Sigh.

Happy New Year!

that lasagna sounds wonderful. i won't be making anything requiring a lot of effort for a while. john is starting a diet experiment today - just beans and rice. blah. the kids and i will be eating easy food that they won't complain about.

hope you are all feeling better soon. we're so glad we got to see you and sorry that you've been feeling yucky.

The lasanga looks extra delicious and I know it takes a lot of work but like you say it is totally worth it.
