A week ago, I told you about the case of the missing shoes. My son lost 2 pairs of his shoes and we searched and searched with no luck. I was convinced that these shoes must have been at a friend’s house since I was sure they weren’t in my house. I texted all of his friends but they all said they hadn’t seen the shoes. So on Sunday while we were at church, one of the pairs of shoes magically found their way back to our front porch. No explanation, just the black sneakers sitting there! So one pair of shoes is back, one to go. The pair that are missing are his soccer cleats. I mean really, how in the world did those go missing? He wears them once a week to one place. I’ll keep you posted on whether those show up or not! In the meantime he’s being extra careful with the shoes that he does have and I’ll be writing his name and phone number in all of them!
This recipe for Slow Cooker Mexican Lasagna is an easy whole wheat
pasta dinner made with all of your favorite Mexican flavors.
This recipe was inspired by The Girl Who Ate Everything’s taco lasagna recipe. Christy’s recipe is cooked in the oven and I was inspired to see if this idea could work in the slow cooker. Instead of using ricotta cheese I chose to go with sour cream. Usually I would be really nervous to use sour cream in the slow cooker since fresh dairy often curdles in this environment. So I mixed the sour cream with some flour to make it a little more stable. I also chose to go with the thinner, runnier picante sauce rather than salsa. This was on purpose so that the extra liquid could help the uncooked lasagna noodles cook without having to add water or another flavorless liquid. I also really love the whole wheat lasagna noodles because they don’t turn to mush like some white pastas do in the crockpot. All in all, I was pleased with the results of this recipe and so were my kids and husband. Thanks to the taco seasoning and picante sauce it had lots of flavor. I also really enjoyed the fresh flavors from the toppings (cilantro, diced tomato and avocado).
