Yes, tonight's lasagna will be a real treat for me. I'm even following a recipe, just so it doesn''t come out tasting like my normal pasta sauce with a different noodle. lol

Let me know how it turned out? I have the same problem. I'm a creature of habit, always end up reaching for the same spices when making tomato based pasta sauce. All my pasta tastes the same

I'm just happy I finally got to use that bottle of fennel someone told me I needed in my spice cabinet.

I also always use a recipe for lasagne so it's not the same as everything else. That sauce I make completely from scratch.

Here's the recipe I'm using.
World's Best Lasagna Recipe - Allrecipes.com

I'll let you know later if it is "the world's best", lol.

I have a question for you, pac, to call on your logical mind. Today I have been picking little narrow oak leaves out of the gravel I mindlessly (well, actually I knew what I was doing, just didn't think I'd tire of the result so soon) spread under the tree last summer. I don't own a leaf blower or shop vac (yet) but wonder if I could use a household vac on them. My old Hoover cannister is practically a member of the family and I'd hate to mess it up. Do you think I could get away with slurping up leaves with it?

Gosh - there are lots of places to spend extra $$, aren't there?

Thanks Pac :) It sounds good. Maybe a bit sweet? I like the addition of Italian sausage. If it's good I'll give it a go, let you be the guinea pig for now lol!

Whatever gave you the idea I had a logical mind?
I'm the guy that tried to use a leaf blower to dry a floor... and it was working well, too... until the smoke alarms went off

Are you saving the leaves or you simply want them removed from the gravel so the gravel looks nice?
If it was me... I'd fire up the big propane torch and torch them all. Just don't hold the torch too long in one spot or the gravel will POP. Ask me how I know that Darn things are hot, too!

I would probably just rake them on a windy day. What won't blow away will probably stick to the tines.

Sorry I was late seeing this, V. Curry-in is a great way to drop a few bucks.

Let me tell you, though. I saved about $17.00 on a half gallon of milk yesterday. I bought it at the nice, new gas station just up the street. I know it was overpriced, but still less than I would have spent at the grocery store -- can't get out of there for less than $20 for some reason. I must admit it was hard passing the Krispy Kreme case as I bought the milk.
