This week we are making Lasagna. I made it the other night and it was super delicious.
You should try it, and let your family say YUM! It is a quick and easy dish, plus fun if you want your children to be involved.
What you will need:
Ground beef --or-- any meat that you like with pasta
Tomato sauce, and canned tomatoes
Other cheese i.e. American
--Measure how wide you pan is with the individual uncooked pasta. Remember pasta expands so the length of the pasta should not be of concern.
--Boil the pasta as you would spaghetti.
--Cook your ground beef throughly.
--Once the pasta has boiled,strain, and place each pasta flat and 2- centimeters away from each other on a cool plate. This will allow them to cool off and not stick together.
--Once they are cool to the touch, line the bottom of your baking dish with the pasta. ------This creates the first layer of your pasta. It should take no more that 4 of the pasta to line the dish.
--Sprinkle cheese, meat, and sauce over this first layer. You can add the extra ingredients if desired (i.e. Mushrooms, onions, and ricotta cheese)
-----------This is the perfect time to get the kids to help. They can sprinkle the cheese, mushrooms, and even scoop some of the sauce onto the layers. Parental guidance of course.-------------------
-- Continue to place the pasta, cheese, meat and sauce until your desired height. The best is to finish to your baking dish.
--The last layer should be finished with the pasta, then cover the top completely with the cheese.
--Place in the oven of preheated 350 and bake 20 mins. The cheese should be completely melted on the top layer when finished.
Let sit to cool and the sauce will thicken as it sits. Serve along side garlic bread.
Fruit + Foreplay = Great Sex?Foreplay
is essential to a great sexual experience. But what happens when you've tried all the 'regular' warm-ups? What can you do to spice up sexual encounters with your long-term partner? What if you only have limited sexual experience and want to explore trying something new?
One thing many people use to expand their sexual horizons is to involve food in foreplay. In this article, we explore how food can come into play during foreplay and sex. We’ll look at a couple of tamer options, and a little from the more adventurous side.
To start with, any sexually experienced person will tell you foreplay is essential to sex. Without it, the whole experience changes, often for the worst. Foreplay is an essential part of building arousal, which is the major ingredient in great sex.
As a starting point, you need to ask yourself if you think you’d be turned on by something a little different during one of your next sexual experiences. You may think that it’s a little strange, but if you are willing to try it out, you might discover a new way to expand your love life. If it sounds like something you or your partner might enjoy, just keep an open mind and give it a try. Many people have found it exotic and rewarding.
On the other hand, it could sound like a good idea at first, but once you get into actually trying it, it may feel a little too strange for you, or for your partner. It’s important to stay honest with yourself and with your partner about it. If you're feeling too odd, just say so! Something like "Babe, this isn't really doing it for me. How about you?" It's important to ask how your partner feels, because if you're feeling odd, they might be too. If it doesn’t work for you, don't push it and ruin an otherwise great night of sex!
So what can you use? For starter you can start with fruit. Fruit does not cause much of a mess, unless it is extremely juicy. Strawberries, bananas, watermelon, mango, and pineapples are awesome fruits in taste and stimulants. Syrup, chocolate syrup, or whip cream is also a great use for food and foreplay. Note – as the whipped cream, syrup, or fruit sugar begins to dry, things have the potential to get sticky. You may want to work a shower into the mix, or have a warm damp cloth near at hand.Run your fingers and the fruit in the most tender spots of you lover. Outline the body with the juicy fruit and clean him/her up with your tongue following behind it. Make sure your partner is not allergic, because it can be deadly. Do not use the fruit inside the vaginal or anal areas. Just rub them over the body, the mouth, the breast/ chest, and the navel/stomach. Place fruit on the body and eat it off all the while making kisses (or more) here and there.
This experience can be great. But remember ask your partner first and come to an agreement. Make sure you both understand that it is something new. And of you do not like it, you can easily give it up.
