Ready for my Five on Friday?
First - enjoying my pot plants. My Orchid continues to amaze me, it keeps on blooming with more flowers. It's so beautiful and thriving in the lounge away from direct sunlight. It's been flowering for weeks now.
Second - an amazing 'dinner tonight' - Lasagna with garlic bread, it was very tasty.
Beef mince fried with onion (I cheated and used chopped frozen onion) then I added an orange pepper, mushrooms and a jar of garlic tomato pasta sauce. After 20 minutes I added a tin of tomatoes a splash of wine vinegar & soy sauce. Meanwhile I made a cheese sauce, greased a glass dish ready and on heating the oven I layered up the dish.
Layer half the meat sauce mix, then 3 sheets of lasagna pasta, next half of the cheesy sauce, followed by the second half of tomato sauce, 3 more pasta sheets, the second half of the white sauce and topped with some grated cheese. Baked in the oven for 40 mins and garlic bread baked for 13 mins.
Definitely a favourite and packed with flavour.
Third - whilst shopping in town today and I succumbed to an impulse purchase at the checkout. A nice celebratory pot holder, or in my case an oven cloth to lift trays out the oven. Usually we use tea cloths, that get wet and cause burns. If you're in the UK Boyes sell them and tea cloths with the same logo.
I'm off to catch up with a bit of crochet, I did one row early this morning over a cup of tea.
Thanks for visiting, glad you stopped by. Do leave a comment and let me know what you are up to.
Ttfn (Ta ta for now - Good bye!)
