Ultimate Comfort Food on this Nerve Racking Election Day

Mom's Lasagna

Mom’s Lasagna

Latest polls all show that people are losing sleep over this election, so no matter how you vote here’s some lovin’ from mom’s cookbook: her famous, award-winning lasagna. May it bring you comfort while you watch today’s polls.

1 lb hamburger
Spaghetti Sauce (Prego)
1/2 lb cheddar cheese (grated)
1/2 lb Monterey jack cheese
8 oz. cottage cheese
Lasagna noodles (she said the ones in the Green Box)

Preheat oven to 350. Brown hamburger and drain. Add spaghetti sauce and 2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Stir until well blended. In 9 X 13 baking pan, put one large spoonful of the sauce on the bottom of the pan to cover bottom. Add one layer of lasagna noodles; Add 1/3 of remaining meat sauce, spoon cottage cheese over meat sauce, top with one layer of combined cheeses; repeat layers until all the sauce is used; Cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 1 hour, removing the foil, 15 minutes before finished.
Beth’s Note: I don’t recall her using Cheddar Cheese, just 1 pound of Monterey Jack.
Dad’s Note: I don’t recall her using Cheddar either, at least I didn’t buy any when I went to the store. Though I always had sliced cheddar cheese so maybe she used that.
My note: I took the recipe word for word from a letter to me. I have always used half of both cheeses.

On a College Campus? Don’t Try to Tell a Joke

It really is becoming a little ridiculous, when the one place where alternative ideas should be free are being muffled. Carlos Mencia, Jerry Seinfeld, Larry the Cable Guy, Chris Rock…even Bill Maher will no longer speak on college campuses. So, when I read this, I couldn’t help but share.

If you hurt someone’s feelings, or might have potentially hurt their feelings, campus bias response teams are ready to pounce.

WILLIS – SMOKESCREEN still sooooo sexy aww-a-aww

Years ago, Fiat released a Superbowl commercial with this song, and ever since then I was hooked. Still one of my most-played songs on iTunes. It’s not on Apple music yet, hmmm.

I am so out of the loop as far as my music listening these days. There is some really exciting new performers and old favorites in the RS top picks.
