Not much is doing lately in the Feral Casa. We went away, ate a ton and came back craving home-cooked simple meals, and salads. Lots of veggies and salads. So I didn’t really have anything to say. But I really, really wanted to use our new camera. So, I took some photos of the lasagna that JustAwesome was making. Just to take some photos.
And then we ate the aforementioned, pre-photographed lasagna and it was really, really delicious. It is a riff on the Jamie Oliver's Simple Baked Lasagne which uses squash. That’s why we made it—a good use for squash. (We have reupped our Urban Organic box, for now, and are assuming we’ll get more squash than we know what to do with over the next few months.) Anyway, the recipe also calls for créme fraiche which is mixed with anchovies. Say what? Squash and anchovies in your lasagna? Yes! And it was sooooo good. The créme fraiche gave it an amazing creaminess, the anchovies gave it the meaty, smokiness. Served with much-needed salad, less-needed wine. Really, really good.
