Clearly this is going to be one of the most exciting posts I've ever written.
First let's talk about the lasagna.
Today I was craving lasagna so I went to Pioneer Woman's website, found her super yummy, super easy lasagna recipe and decided that is what I would prepare for dinner.
After work, with the help of my cute hubby, we prepared this yummy lasagna. Luke claims he did it all the work because I just read the recipe off of the website and told him what to do. But I like to think of it as a team effort.
The recipe made a ton, so we will be eating on it for a few days, but it was the best lasagna I have ever had.
Definitely beats Stouffers!
However Luke is in this new 'kick' where he counts ALL of our calories.
He uses the Lose It application on his iphone and anytime I prepare a meal he stands over my shoulder entering EVERY calorie of EVERY ingredient of EVERY recipe into his phone.
It's not annoying. At. All.
I'm not a big fan of calorie counting.
I like to eat food blindly. If I know how many calories are in it, all the fun is taken out of eating.
So tonight before I was about to dive into that yummy lasagna Luke thought it would be the appropriate time to inform me that this meal contained more calories than any other meal I have prepared since he starting counting calories last spring.
I pretended I didn't hear that piece of knowledge and enjoyed every single bite.
After the lasagna I figured I would burn some calories and wrap some presents.
I was a little too excited when I opened up our wrapping paper and realized that the friendly wrapping paper manufacturers printed lines on the back of the paper for easy-straight cutting.
Look how cool:
I was sort of flipping out with excitement.
It made my wrapping paper experience much more enjoyable. I usually dread this part of Christmas.
Has anybody else mastered wrapping gifts? I am horrible at it and typically I'm embarrassed by my presents.
Also, I like to color coordinate my wrapping paper with my tree. Even though Luke and I are typically the only people who see our tree.
The ole APT doesn't fit too many people and when you add a tree space is limited.
Our tree is black, red and silver so our wrapping paper is black and white and red and white.
Here is a pretty bad pic of our tree. I will show more later but I wanted to give you the black,red, silver feel.
I took this picture from my phone while sitting on my couch.
That's just how many calories I'm burning tonight.
So that was our night in a nutshell. Lasagna and wrapping gifts.
We live a very exciting and on-the-go lifestyle.
I have become the person who color coordinates their wrapping paper with their tree and gets excited over a good lasagna recipe.
And oddly enough, thats ok with me!
