Well, Mother’s Day is off to a great start. Well, it was . . .
I hit the kitchen a little over an hour ago to start the official MDay dinner. On the menu for tonight? Lasagna! I use a modified version of the tomato sauce and lasagna recipes in Craig Claiborne’s cookbook. I had just finished chopping up the vegetables when I remembered the card! I rushed upstairs and grabbed the card from it’s super secret hiding spot (on top of my dresser) and rushed back downstairs to sign it and put it on my wife’s computer. Just as I was about to sign it, I saw the fine print: Happy Birthday!
Tail between my legs, I slinked back upstairs and confessed I had gotten the wrong card. Fortunately, my wife laughed hysterically. Besides, I gave her flowers yesterday. She could come home and catch me naked on the couch with Sandra Bullock, and flowers would smooth things over. Probably for Sandra too . . .
Anyway, the sauce is simmering now. About three, I’ll cook the meat and add it to the sauce, let it simmer some more, then start assembly and baking. I usually shoot for six PM, but my family expects me to sometimes overshoot to seven. If I remember, I’ll take a picture and post it as HMDay Part2.
Again, Happy Mother’s Day!
