Tuna & Spinach Lasagne

Usually, when I make lasagne, I make enough for 2 meals. The quantities of the ingredients work well, it fits my favorite pan, and it’s nice to have a meal waiting with no work.

But this was on Friday and we had plans for the weekend. I decided to make a lasagne for 2.

It wasn’t at all difficult to get the ingredients in the right proportions…. but it was a challenge to get a baking dish the right size for everything to fit – and fit snugly.

We loved the lasagne and it looked fine for the first effort. The size was just right!

Tuna Spinach Lasagne

Our weather finally turned cold and windy, which means the rest of the leaves are finally off the trees.

Of course it’s now too cold and windy to go out and do the raking.

Guapa has started to hate the wind. We barely go on walks any longer but if she feels any wind she acts like she can barely stand and hurries back to the house, making our short walks even shorter.

I think she’s faking it…..

But I dutifully go with her and give her a belly rub to get over the trauma.

I also think I’m being played.

  1. I hate the wind just like Guapa…but for different reasons…it carries endless pollens and causes hay fever really badly…endless blowing and sneezing and people give you the Covid side eye !!!!

  2. They do know how to manipulate us, don’t they? Murphy will go out to do his business (we got a little over three inches of snow between Saturday afternoon and Sunday evening) but only after he looks out the door, looks up at me and then glances at his winter snow coat. No coat? No outside. I can’t say I blame him, I guess. Blue Dobes have terrible alopecia and he’s one of the worst I’ve seen. Mostly, he’s blue skin except for his legs, belly and the top of his head. So on the coat goes for less than two minutes, but if it gets him out the door, so be it.

    I’d have not thought of this combo, but I’ll have to try it. I did a turkey “shepherd’s” pie yesterday for dinner with the leftover turkey and veggies and I had a lot of mashed potatoes. It went in an 8 X 8 and was just enough for the two of us with some left for his lunch at work today. Those are my favorites, when I can get rid of leftovers instead of making different leftovers from leftovers 😉

    • Guapa also hates rain…. unless it’s at night when she has barking duty/ In all fairness, with her heavy coat it takes awhile before she knows it’s raining. I just wish I could teach her to shake in the barn but she prefers to wait until she’s safely inside lol
