Anyone familiar with the children's story "The Hungry Thing?" Well, it's a cute little book about a monster that comes into a village with a sign that says "FEED ME," and the villagers try to figure out what the Hungry Thing wants, feed him, and then he points to his sign again. This continues for quite some time during the book, until the end, when the monster flips his sign over and it reads "Thank You." I had a moment this past weekend when I identified with those villagers.
Typically, when I've made (spinach and artichoke) lasagna in the past, I prepare a whole recipe, which makes enough for a 9X13 pan, or about 12 servings. I then split the ingredients into two 9X9 pans, cover one tightly and freeze it for another day. I did this Saturday when I made dinner for Dan and I, thinking, "well, we'll have dinner tonight, plus leftovers for me for lunch a couple of times." Boy, was I wrong. Leftovers:
Dan was hungry, I guess! Three and a half pieces of lasagna, two helpings of spinach salad, and some leftover popcorn later, he finally decided he was full. (He's back to working at the farm at the nature center where we both used to work, so all that cold, fresh air, and exercise finally caught up with him!)
Now, for next time, I need to find whole wheat lasagna noodles. Anyone tried a brand they like?
