“Veggie” Lasagna.

Ok, I’m back from Jazz Fest, but you’ll have to wait for a recap! I have to bring you back a whole week to last Tuesday when I had dinner with my family at T&K’s!

Here’s Coco, T&K’s pretty lab :)

My dad called me in the afternoon to check if I was coming so he could make a veggie lasagna for me. He used to always make homemade lasagna growing up. I always remember the freshly cooked noodles laying on the counter :)

The beautiful masterpieces:

T is supervising the dressing-making process. This is Jah’s special recipe…olive oil, parmesan and black pepper. Hey, he called it a dressing so I didn’t argue ;)

My first plate (I did try the “dressing” and it was delicious).

This was supposed to be my second helping of veggie lasagna…

…that’s when I noticed something strange in my first bite. Not quite the veggie texture or flavor I was used to. So…I peeled back the layers and there inside the gorgeously delicious lasagna…was SAUSAGE!

Me: Uhhh Dad? I thought these were veggie?

Dad: Denise, they are. Don’t be paranoid. Someone probably just switched the spatulas.

Me: No Dad, there is meat throughout. What kind of sauce did you use?

Dad: I’m not sure actually. But you know I wouldn’t have used it had I know what was in it…

Me: Dad, I know. I just wont eat anymore. It was delicious :) I’m over it…

So…I think I ate some meat. I tried not to freak out too much. It was a mistake and my dad did a great job. He put carrots, onions, zucchini, broccoli and tomatoes in there to make it as full of veggies as possible. He’s cute.


Good thing I didn’t eat anymore dinner because Auntie M made a double chocolate bundt cake!
