Notes

For the past few weeks Rob's been begging me to cook something for a group of foreign exchange students he met while working at Ski Santa Fe. There's about 10 people from all over South America on a worker exchange program for the ski season. When Ski Santa Fe failed to help them with their temporary move, Rob stepped in to find them an apartment in our same complex. And in much disbelief from his boss, furnished their whole apartment with Craigslist give aways. They have become friends of ours, and every so often I bake them small treats. They raved about my Extra Butter Cupcakes, but since they will be leaving in a week, I decided to prepare them a homemade Sunday dinner, Lasagna. A relatively cheap meal that can feed an army.

Now it's not my fanciest of dishes, and as you can see in the picture, my dish was just a bit too small. I could have sacrificed cheese and sauce, but let's be honest, who really wants that?
