Fish and chips- LOVE it but all that oil and batter and the mess? No thanks.
Devilled eggs and those fancy flooded icing cookies? Love them but way too complicated and fiddly for me.
All those different sauces you need.
All that faffing around layering it.
Then you have to wait another 30 minutes while it bakes.
It's really yummy though.
And if I had easy access to lasagna sheets I'm sure I would make it every now and again.
But I don't so I don't.
And then we were skyping my sister and she mentioned she had made a lasagna.
You know, lasagna. Pasta. Doesn't mummy make it for you?
You should ask her to make it for tea tonight!
Gee thanks sis.
I should mention it was about 11 am at the time.
But, can't admit defeat to my sister so, challenge accepted!
Drove to three supermarkets and finally found a pack of lasagna sheets.
Grabbed the reddest, least fatty looking mince there was. (Not easy in this fatty meat loving country!)
Came home and after only a couple of hours of faffing with my lovely and ever over-helpful assistant Amy we came up with this:
Not perfect. A little overcooked. But considering my 'oven' is a microwave with a convection facility this was pretty good I reckon.
And the girls were THRILLED.
Lasagna is DELICIOUS!
Auntie L is a GENIUS.
What about Mummy who did all the freaking work???
