FYI: my Butternut Squash Lasagna with a Twist makes EXCELLENT left overs.
Like really, really deliciously amazing excellent left overs.
I wanted to lick my bowl clean after lunch. Oh wait, I did!
I brought some in for my boss as well and she could not stop raving about it. Any person who walked by she would hand them a fork and tell them to try a bite. It makes me happy when other people enjoy my food as much as I do. 🙂
This recipe was so easy and came out so great. I see myself making it again in the very near future. The best part is you can downsize it and upgrade it for as many people as you need to feed.
I got a couple of comments questioning the 4 person serving size for the original recipe. I wanted to be clear that my 1/4 portion really was the perfect, filling portion. Yes, I did pair it with a small spinach salad, but even without it I’m sure I would have been ok. I am STUFFED right now.
Before lunch I had some crackers to tide me over.
One of the traps is Phantom Pains. Phantom pains can be defined as any unexplained new pain – such as, a sudden pain in your ankle, a sharp pinch in your back, or a sore knee – that develops during tapering.
So far this week I’ve been dealing with a muscle spasm in my lower right back, an extra tight IT band, random foot pains, etc. You want phantom pains? Well, I’ve got them!
The article gives good advice basically saying that with such a big event around the corner, of course we are going to blow every new sensation out of proportion. All of a sudden a teeny bit of pain becomes the end of the world two weeks before a marathon that requires optimal health. The pain is probably just the body healing itself and we’re instructed to stay calm and not worry.
So, I’m staying calm. And not worrying. But, it’s hard. I should block any sort of self diagnosing from google. Google is not your friend 2 weeks before a marathon!
I’m hoping these pains are in fact phantom pains and to just leave them at that.
