Lasagna. And cake, not chocolate. Those were Abby’s requests when I asked her what I should make for her birthday dinner. So, we went to town. Micah did his awesome lasagna with homemade noodles, which, did I mention, was awesome? I will take credit for thinking to put it in the Pullman-loaf pan we just got from some friends who were moving. Deep dish lasagna where every piece is an edge piece. Does it get any better?
As for the cake, you have no idea how many options I considered. I have no idea how many options I considered. But I decided to do something seasonal: caramel apple cake. This might be slightly misleading because it was actually a white cake with apple filling and caramel icing, but it was totally delicious. Can you really go wrong with that much sugar and butter and cream? It’s okay though, because it has apples, too. And apples are good for you.
Should I mention the salted caramel ice cream? Oh, I think I just did. Um, really good. Really really good. Although I will say that the “salt” part of salted caramel was a little bit too salty. But that’s all the bad I can say about it. Except for maybe that it is taunting me from the freezer, but I’m off ice cream until after the marathon. Good thing it will totally be worth the weight wait.
