Nate's family was here last weekend for a visit and we celebrated my brother-in-law's engagement and a slew of birthdays! To celebrate the occasion I decided to try out a new recipe that I'd been dying to make for a while now, but couldn't make for my family's visit because of their dislike for all things mushroom. :)
Here is the end result:
I used this recipe from Smitten Kitchen: Mushroom Lasagna
It was delicious! And mega-filling!
I totally recommend trying this recipe out yourself if you like mushrooms. I'm not even a huge fan of white-sauce based lasagnas, but the homemade sauce in this one isn't too rich or overpowering.
It was a fun few weekends with family visiting.
This week I've been waiting for the easel I ordered to come in the mail. I've been using my portable easel in the meantime, but it is a bit rickety and kind of a space hog in my studio. I am completely impatient. It is now sitting in Hodgkins IL, two days away from me via UPS. :(
On the plus side, I've still been working on things in the studio:
I've been doing a lot of still life drawings, and am going to start to take some of my ideas into painting as well.
