What a beautiful day! Spring is in the air, is it not?
After work, I walked to the park and did a (~3 mile) loop around it. I left my ipod at home and did my best to take in the sights & sounds around me (I’m trying to work on being PRESENT. ;)) – people walking their dogs, kids playing baseball, women walking and talking, boot camp, etc.
I stopped at the grocery store on my way home to pick up a few ingredients for tonight’s dinner- Real Simple’s Cheesy Baked Lasagna with Spinach and Artichokes. I don’t really care for artichokes, so I subbed in about 2/3 lb of asparagus for it. Asparagus was $1.99/lb, which I thought was a pretty good deal.
It was full of flavors and textures- cheesy, crunchy, and just overall delicious! The recipe made 4 servings, so I have just the right amount of leftovers. I already packed some up for tomorrow’s lunch.
My sister got me a subscription to Real Simple for Christmas and I love how reasonable (ingredients and cooking time) the majority of the recipes are.
