I boiled up some large shrimp in the shell & served them with a Nuoc Cham dipping sauce for a change (minced hot chilis, garlic, ginger, lime juice, rice vinegar, sugar, & fish sauce).

dw had an obligatory day at the mall (they get upset when she hasn't been there for a few days and start sending get well cards, with discounts, the @#$%$$ %^&$%#@)

so the boy and i went shopping for stuff for dinner. we ended up with the fixin's for a sausage and fresh sweet basil lasagna.

i used ronzoni no-bake noodles, part skim mozz and ricotta, a coupla eggs, sweet sausage, fresh sweet basil from my garden, and since i didn't have enough time to cook down my own termaters, i used "newman's own" marinara (i know, for shame! ).

my shop-aholic was skeptical when she arrived home, having had bad experiences with no-bake noodles. but i followed the rules of covering every noodle edge to edge with sauce or "wet" ricotta/egg mixture, and i left some room for expansion. it came out great. mostly tender, not too runny, with some crisp edges.

O Fortune, like the moon you are changeable.
Ever waxing, ever waning.
Hateful life; first oppresses, and then it soothes, as fancy takes it; poverty and power. It melts them like ice.

I was going to make jambalaya, but I spent too long doing chores around the house today. So, I made do with a veggie burger, unsweetened applesauce, and cottage cheese.
