Who's off today? This is the biggest pain of teaching on a Monday--even when everyone else if off, I have to work (listen to me whine when I only work 2 hours a week...).

I'm off today, it's a new holiday called Family Day. I slept in this morning and after I'm done breakfast I'm going to a park to do hill repeats.

Breakfast: yogurt, coffee, banana & PB on WW wrap
Lunch: cream of corn chowder w/egg drop
Dinner: veggie lasagna (never made one before, if you have a good recipe, SHARE NOW PLEASE!)

What's Family Day about?


Do you want to use pasta in your lasagna?

The title of this journal makes no sense.

Hey Jean,

The government made up Family Day last fall, a couple of other provinces have the holiday already and they felt we deserve a long weekend in this dreary stretch between New Years and Easter. :)

I bought fresh WW lasagna sheets. I also have the ricotta...can you elaborate on why you need to mix with eggs? can I just layer sauce, noodles, veggies, ricotta?

I haven't tried it but have been told that eggplant in a waffle maker or panini grill is amazing.

You can use straight ricotta but it's harder and I like the softness, more custardy (though it's not custardy) consistency with eggs, especially if you're using low fat ricotta.

my favorite lasagna doesn't use ricotta at all but bechamel sauce.


Please share the recipe! I might try it for next time. I used to love this lasagna but it's ridiculously high in fat and calories that I can't eat it anymore. I loved it because it had no tomato sauce...
