Lasagna – Simple, Easy, Delicious

My mama's Lasagna will always be my favorite.

Lasagna – Simple, Easy, Delicious

When I was growing up, if my mother were to ask me what I wanted for dinner, the answer was always the same “please cook my favorite – Lasagna”. No matter the occasion - sleepovers with friends, family reunions, pot-luck parties, I could never get enough of my mama’s Lasagna.

While her recipe may be a little untypical, it’s simple, easy to make, and delicious. I am passing it along for your enjoyment. I promise you, and anyone who tries it, will not be disappointed.

Bon Appetite!

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.
