Way Home.

I walked out the door of work with a plan in mind... lasagna! I normally try to come up with ideas for dinner either while at the gym or on my way home from, I feel so uncomfortable not having an idea, at the least.. and I know this may sound weird, but because my husband is a chef, I feel the need for my meals to reach a certain bracket, and am always crushed on the inside when they don't...thankfully most do! ;]

On other weird compulsions... do you have traditions or certain things that must occur or be present while cooking? For me, it's definitely starting out with a de-cluttered, clean kitchen.. I'll spend a half hour cleaning to dirty it again.. yea, I know. My other must have whilst cooking is music... it's usually Ottmar Liebert & Dave Koz or Sinatra & Buble...although I do love to sing while bustling around the kitchen so at times it's KT Tunstall and the like..... I find something oddly feminine and nurturing about slicing, cutting, sauteing and gently placing while belting out your favorite song..?No?

Last night there was plenty of Buble and this..:

The final product looks awesome! I don't think I've ever used escarole before but it looks great in your lasagna. I never thought about what 'traditions' or habits I have while cooking but I do share with you the need to have a clear workspace before cooking. I usually clear out all the dishes in the sink before getting started; it just seems to make everything easier! 8-)

That looks delicious! I'd love the recipe!

I too have to clean my kitchen in order to create another mess. Just spent the last 30 minutes doing so, actually. =)
