May IHSW

Great start to this weekend – with a finish for LHN Peace.

I worked on my Ink Circle’s RYO2013 project but have negative stitches and wasn’t able to complete the rip out.  It does not pay to try and keep stitching when your eyes have been flipping the GO TO BED sign for a while

Food

Tonight’s feasting was over Sweet Potato Lasagna by Forks Over Knives. Unfortunately I cant share it as it can only be found in their cookbook

Forks Over Knives - The Cookbook: Over 300 Recipes for Plant-Based Eating All Through the Year

I modified mine a bit, using whole wheat pasta as trying to find lasagna noodles that are a whole grain is next to impossible where I live. I also include broccoli, mushrooms, celery, ACV and turmeric to the mix of veggies and spices. I also went out on a limb and made enough for two lasagna dishes.

Happy to report that this dish is a huge hit! I had barely enough left of one dish for lunch tomorrow and a whole dish for dinner later this week. Perfect

This is NOT a weekday meal. It took me a very long time getting everything cut up, cooked and assembled. I cant see where any time could be saved if everything was cutup and ready to go as the cauliflower and sweet potatoes both are steamed, then put through the food processor (ok that was another change I made but easier to get the sweets eaten), then the noodles are cooked.

The best thing, other than the thumbs up for a good meal, was the 45 min cooking time. Wonderful break for me :oP

I have thoughts of changing this up some more but still working things out.  I would like to make this again, it is very filing and satisfying and would be great for a fall/winter dish but there needs to be some way to speed up the prep time…
