I took this picture from Richards phone and can't figure out how to get the whole thing on it. Sorry Landon, you got cut off, but I still love you.
Yes, I know it's ricotta. When Richard and I were first married I was in the kitchen making a lasagna. Richard peeked over my shoulder and said, "what are you doing?" To which I replied, "putting cottage cheese in the lasagna."
"No one puts cottage cheese in their lasagna" said he.
"Every one puts cottage cheese in their lasagna" said I.
"My mom doesn't" said he.
After that not so wise comment I proceeded to ask everyone if they used cottage cheese in their lasagna. And pretty much every one did. Even Stouffer's. I actually now have 2 recipes that I alternate, one with ricotta and one with cottage cheese. What do you use?
Anyway, lasagna isn't really the topic. Tonight was the Rain Gutter Regatta for scouts. Of course we waited until last night to make them. So hours before the event I was cursing the boats as I glued and did all the stuff that the kids can't do alone anyway. We read a few tips on the internet and I did most of the work. I was not happy about spending so much time on them this afternoon or about the loads of super glue that ended up on my hand. But Landon took 4th and Daniel took 3rd out of 21 boys! It was really good for Daniel to win. It was a single elimination and Daniel and Landon each got to race their boats 4 times, ultimately racing against each other for 3rd and 4th place! The leaders didn't really think the brackets through very well, but I think they could have taken 2nd and 3rd easy! It was a much better experience than the pinewood derby has ever been. Plus there is some actual skill in how you race your boat and how you blow it. I'm just happy they did so well. Pat, pat. (Patting myself on the back.)
