Benjamin The Fifth

I've been running around like mad the past few days and here is the reason why.

This is my beautiful nephew. He was born at 3 am on Monday, October 1. Christy did wonderfully. This was Christy's first baby and he was 9 pounds and 19 inches. She pushed like a champ and held up very well during labor. I had never been to a hospital birth before and don't know how she did it with no drugs. I had no idea she would be so immobilized. She's a trooper.

I'm not really up to big explanations but I'll have some quick remarks. This lasagna is from here http://tofu-n-sproutz.blogspot.com/search?q=lasagna It was pretty good and some non-Vegans thought it was good. I like the "Cheesy" lasagna from vegweb better, but this does use cheaper ingredients. The recipe from vegweb also holds up better during reheating.

I saw this Key Lime Teasecake over here...http://dgmgv.blogspot.com/2007/09/key-lime-teasecake.html and decided that I had to try it. I couldn't find key limes or their juice and so I used regular bottle lime juice. I also used a store bought graham cracker crust.

The non-Vegans thought that this was good as well. I thought that it was pretty good for a healthy dessert. I kind of feel like I'd rather it be totally bad for me and over the moon on flavor instead of pretty good but better for me. But that's just me. I still recommend you try it out.

Last here is a green's recipe from Nonna's Italian Kitchen. They were pretty good and the kids were ok with them if they had some corn on the same bite of greens. In all honesty, I'm with the kids. I've never cooked greens before and I look forward to getting some more onto our plates.

That's about all. Things might be a little off for a bit longer but I'll do my best.
