The day I ‘fan girled out’ and became a domestic Goddess


I’ve not had time to cook – and need to be in the mood.  We’ve been eating crap.  I’m not going to lie.  Ready made meals for the men of the house, and as for me?  I eat when I’m hungry only and will participate in anything that is available.

So I downloaded a recipe or two and was determined to make them!

Eggplant Lasagna – which I’ve never made, but have enjoyed.  And, I knew I had to make some quiches again.

3 day weekend – perfect time to do this!

Oh, and as for the fan girling – that has everything to do with the Force Friday – the Force Awakens released some toys, and if you’re any kind of consistent follower of mine, you know I’m a total action figure/collectible nerd and was eager to see what was out!

Why do I love Star Wars?image

George Lucas was quoted as saying he made movies he wanted to watch.

I remember pretending to be the Princess on the primary school playground.

I had the original action figures – (where, oh WHERE are they now?!)

It fed my fantasy mind.

When Empire Strikes Back came out, I squealed in the theater.  I did the same for the next 4 movies – regardless of their merit.  I. Love. Star Wars.

End of story.

So, today, we went and checked out the toys!  I couldn’t buy any, but SO wanted Luke.  (We have to assume there’s a flashback, because he’s young in this action figure AND there’s one of Darth!)

(Yeah, you can see they were pretty much sold out – but there’s Luke. 😦 I wanted him to come home with me.)

In the second photo from the top, you can see the figure gripping my finger.  I think it wanted to come home with me too. 😉

OK. So after fan girling out, we went to the 99 cent store.

This is where I vent.

I paid freaking $3.00 per piece for the eggplants I needed at Safeway.  When we were in the 99 cent store, guess what I stumbled upon??

Seriously???????????

We left with a 10 pound bag of potatoes for 99 cents by the way.

I’m definitely shopping there first for produce from now on!

OK! So the domestic Goddess part.

I made the infamous $6.00 eggplant lasagna.

Which, was more labor intensive than I thought – but SO worth it.  Delicious!!!!

Was also the first time I worked with Ricotta cheese, and it was fun!

Then I did the quiches.

The men of the house are dubious about the eggplant, but loopy over the quiche – which is good.

It’s so nice to have fresh, homemade food in the house.  Having an extra day off was a definite motivator to be in the domestic mood today.

If they don’t cotton to the eggplant lasagna, I’m fine with that.  It’s mine! ALL MINE! Muah-ha-ha!!!!!!!!

I did make them take a bite though, and they both liked it.

Dammit.

Wishing all of you a happy weekend – and … may the force be with you!
