Oscar Recap

I made Cooking Light Turkey Lasagna for Oscar night and it was delicious!  Seriously, this is a great lasagna recipe.  It's much less of a pain in the ass than other recipes I've tried and even my notoriously picky sister Annie enjoyed it (although she didn't eat the green beans, probably due to the fact that they're green but maybe because in her OCD-addled brain they're "dirty" in some way.  You never can tell with her).

Anyway, this has a lot more cheese than other Cooking Light lasagna recipes I've tried and that's a good thing.  I can't help loving cheese as I used to spend summer in Wisconsin and visited a Cheese Castle on the way there.  It was inevitable and unpreventable and I am not going to feel guilty about it.

Aside from the food, the Oscars were pretty good.  Kathryn Bigelow becoming the first woman to win Best Director awakened feelings of feminist pride that hadn't been explored since the Spice Girls came upon the scene.  Girl Power, indeed.  Kathy Ireland's natural and polished interviewing style was really my highlight of the night, I have to say.  They should hire her to host future presidential debates.

The night did get a little long, though.  At first, Coop was glued to the screen, carefully and meticulously examining and judging every gown, hairdo and make-up job.

Somewhere around Best Sound Editing, after two hours of awards and two or three hours of Seacrest Red Carpet, his interest began to wane a little.

So, all in all, it was a good Oscar night.  Not quite as great as the year "Crash" won and I wore this glamorous ensemble, but good none the less.

Eat your heart out, J-Lo.

  1. I DID eat one green bean. Although your seasoning tasted very good, to me green beans will always taste like grass.
