I mostly suck wind in the kitchen, but I can pull off a kick-azz lasagna that’ll make my family of food-heathens turn wilder. My lasagna-cooking swag is through the roof. Those frozen kinds can’t hold a candle to mine.
So here comes the Michael Angelo’s Vegetable Lasagna people waving free coupons at me. And FREE is fun, so even if I think it might be nasty, I’m gonna try it. Because it’s free.
Eatin’ Veggie Lasagna
I was too lazy to cook with pots and pans, so I cracked open the Michael Angelo’s. I’m thinking, blah blah blah. I’ll eat a boring, frozen, veggie lasagna, then force Husband to make me coffee while I lay on the couch and computer click for two hours. Normal stuff.
First, I noticed the big chunks of veggies that got trapped on top. Surprisingly they weren’t microscopic in size, like freaky human eyelash mites. And then I tasted it – the food, not the mites.
Holy crap, it’s like homemade!
Surely I can trick my future dinner guests and pawn this stuff off as my own. It’s a delightful concoction of zucchini, squash, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, and cauliflower mingled with high quality mozzarella and ricotta cheeses in a wonderfully seasoned sauce with Italian spices and al dente pasta. I don’t know how they got the noodles to NOT be mushy, but they weren’t.
So now the coupons are gone, but I’m gonna get some more with cash out of my
own pocket. Because this stuff is real good and it empowers me to NOT have to cook. Check out more of Michael Angelo’s gourmet goodness here.
Bad parenting moment: It was so good, I gave in to the temptation to eat Greedy Kid #2’s piece while he was at basketball practice. And no, I don’t remember what he ate when he finally got home. Probably cereal.
