Moment of Silence for Ed Shannon's Lasagna of Christmas Present

Pin It

No this photo doesn't do this holiday meal justice. But when you're so eager to eat something - you can tend to convince yourself that whatever photos you have are actually pretty good - when maybe they are just a little left of "works". This classic Italian feast combines Tofurky Italian Sausages cooked in red wine, handmade meatballs made with LightLife Gimme Lean and of course the traditional Lasagna made with tofu-ricotta combined with some Daiya Mozzarella. Of course - it is always served with a side salad and some green beans but - ya know - you guys already know what green beans look like.

We also saw the movie Young Adult*. Here is my 4 part review:
  1. I was disappointed that there was not more David Bowie music in this movie. When you see the preview David Bowie is clearly playing a huge role so to find yourself David Bowie-less was a bit of a blow. Especially since when I was getting Dan pysched to see this I said several times in a weird voice : "David Boweeeeee"
  2. Every time you find yourself thinking that you know what kind of movie your watching or what Different Strokes moment is coming... this movie says "shut up" like some disgusted valley grrrl. This sound unpleasant but it was actually strangely refreshing.
  3. Charlize Theron is just brilliant at being uncomfortably crazy. I feel I may have said to much.
  4. You should see this movie. 
I hope that was helpful without giving to much away.

We are currently working away on our book and with Christmas and all that... I admit we've kinda fallen off the blogging wagon. That's not to say I don't write blogs in my head everyday. I just find myself typing them up into sections for the book. I want to thank everyone who has answered my little surveys and given me feedback to help me choose the recipes and write the sections for the book. I can't promise everything will make it in but I am doing my best but we're already including 500 recipes so there is only so much room. I guess that's what this blog is for.

I've also been really busy figuring out our new camera and working on some new exciting things for the blog for 2012... Spoiler Alert: We're giving away a bunch of stuff. I feel like Oprah whenever we have a contest. Which reminds me - time is running out to enter our VegNews contest! It takes like a minute to have a whole year of happiness! So don't lollygag.

Hope you got everything you wanted this year! Please enjoy some of the weirdest David Bowie ever!

I should probably get back to being a Shannon. It is Christmas after all.

*What? Sometimes I watch things that don't have aliens or robots in it... I'm a woman. Sometimes I like pink things and want to watch a movie about relationships that don't take place in artificial gravity. Jeez.


  1. I love lasagna, David Bowie, Charlize Theron and Bing Crosby. So all things this post.

  2. seriously - sums up my love for all things music, food, and holiday! hope you had a great day...from the looks of that lasagna you sure did :D
