Lasagna Cups

I was thinking about how much I wish my grandma was still around while I was filling up these Lasagna Cups in my kitchen the other day. When I graduated from high school (so long ago!), she made hundreds of lasagna roll-ups for my party that were a HUGE hit. As a lover of kitchen shortcuts, it’s kind of a bummer she never got to see wonton wrappers being used for lasagna!  They’re so fun to use!

These Lasagna Cups in my friend Ryan’s new cookbook – The No-Fuss Family Cookbook and they’re just one of MANY recipes that captured my attention.

Such a fun/simple way to make lasagna that doesn’t take forever! I love that the portions are easy to work out. If I am in front of a whole pan of lasagna, I turn into Garfield and I’ll never stop eating or cutting “another” bite.

I can imagine they would make great appetizers, would be fun to put in kids’ lunches, and have kids help with making them!  I would have adored making these with my grandma as a kid.

Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Intentions for the Week- Week 23 in 2021

Happy Monday, friends!

We had a pretty busy weekend. My family helped clean up the Snack Shack to get it ready for the championships/ All-Stars. We went to our baseball team party and ran a bunch of errands for the shack. It feels good to see hard work change a space. It also feels great to volunteer time for the community. I know it will help raise money for our baseball programs so YAY! This week is Cooper’s last week of school. We have a bunch of activities and I didn’t get around to doing meal prep this weekend. I’ll have to try to fit in pieces throughout the week until I can back into a rhythm! Anyways, here are my Intentions for the Week!
