Lasagna-Style Baked Ziti from Real Simple. So good and so filling. The only negative thing I have to say is that I used a ton of dishes. Thankfully I have a dishwasher, but seriously, it was a lot of dishes.
It was all fine and dandy until the guy asked me "What kind?" My response - "There are different kinds?" Dang it, up until then I was actually looking competent. After looking at percentages and prices, I went with the middle option and chose 85% lean ground beef. Whatever that means. All I know is that I had the exact amount I needed. As I've said before - exact measurements make my brain happy.
My nephew, Cameron, was at my mom's house so I called to say hello. Sadly, he didn't want to talk to me. He was too busy playing with the ipad/legos/thomas. Since I was already on the phone, I asked where to find the ricotta, so I guess this will have to count as one phone call. I also asked if my 3 week old mozzarella cheese would still be usable. Turns out that no mold equals good cheese. Sweet.
Charlotte tells me that if I stop seeing the food as gross, then cooking will become more enjoyable. She's right. But eggs still gross me out, plain noodles make my mouth feel weird, and don't even expect me to like touching raw chicken. I'm taking her advice to heart, though, and I'm proud to say that I'm making progress. I've separated egg whites without cringing, eaten a plain noodle, and touched raw chicken when cutting it.
