Heman asked me if I would make his favorite entree: lasagna, and his favorite cake; Marble for his birthday. There was no way I would ever refuse. So I spent the day cooking and baking.
I started the red meat sauce first. Once that was simmering I started on the cake:
No one was here to lick the spoon, beaters, or bowl
Once the cake layers cooled I was ready to assemble the two layers, and frost it.
It turned out light, with a wonderful crumb, and very moist.
We like this cake chilled so straight to the frig it went. The red meat sauce was finished so I could assemble the lasagna next.
I use ground beef, a wee bit of ground pork, and 3 cheeses to make this dish. Here’s the second layer.
The house smelled wonderful today and I was really hungry by the time it came bubbling out of the oven,
I served the lasagna with a green salad, garlic bread, and a table Cabernet by BV Coastal Estates,
Heman loved it, and no one left hungry. I think I’ll leave the clean up for a bit and go take a walk. I’m stuffed!
