I've been telling DH that we NEED to take another trip to SB, such a cool place.
Oh and btw, what pasties did you take home?
No, for our weekend getaway, we had a fabulous Sunday sea food brunch around the corner from Andersen's, called Jeannine's Menus
The pastries from Andersen's today are Napoleon Hats and large lacy cookie sandwiches they called French Pancakes. Ohhhh...and chocolate rum balls. Thud...

I made my first lasagna today -- looks like it took me a month to make it, since I started it on 3/28.

I didn't use a recipe, per se. I read a bunch of recipes, got the general idea, and made my own mini-lasagna. Well, sort of mini -- I ate the whole thing and now I'm stuffed. It was good... perhaps even Garfield worthy.

Y'know K, I think DH and I had coffee one afternoon at Jennines, the photo of the front strikes a bell for me.

I just love SB, well the whole area really... DH really doesn't like to go to California anymore though ... another ax murder in San Francisco ... there's craziness everywhere, what are you going to do? :shrug:

Beautiful Casey!
Are those handmade pasta sheets you used there? I love it when it gets little crispy bits around the edges like that...
AND ...I WANT THAT PAN!!! What brand is that? and what are the dimensions? I'm tired of making lasagna in throw-away aluminum pans, I'd like something a bit more, well, nicer I suppose.

I did not make the pasta sheets. Fresh homemade pasta, when you are cooking for one, is just not practical.

The baking dish is from Le Creuset. It is a 5X7-inch. I also have a 7X10 and a 9X9. I have a Le Creuset Outlet Store near me, so I got them for a reasonable price. I got the 9X9 most recently, and it was 35 bucks including sales tax. I don't remember what I paid for the other two, but it was less than the 9X9. Le Creuset bakeware is not that pricey, compared to the cast iron -- especially at an outlet store.

TB did OT while I was trying to sleep off a head/chest cold so when he finally got off work he stopped at the store and got a rotisserie chicken. He had his usual two legs with greek salad and I had a chicken Caesar salad. Just a light meal but it hit the spot.

Kgirl if you want some truly beautiful bakeware, check out the https://polishpotteryoutlet.com/
I have several pieces, and I treasure them. They are expensive, but every time I use them they make me smile with their beauty. My sons and their wives have been lusting over the ones I have and when I told them they'd have to wait till I die, SC decided it was time to buy them some pieces.

That is very pretty bakeware, but not my style. Some of it looks kind of Moorish in its highly detailed artwork. I loved walking through the Moorish architecture in Southern Spain and Northern Africa, but don't think I could live with it in my own home.

LP! Long time no see! Good to hear from you.

Nice looking dinner photos, Souschef and cd. Now I want to make lasagna...


Photo of tonight's supper. The ribs were really good. I finally got a nice sloppy pan of mac-and-cheese, too. Most times I underestimate the amount of sauce...
