Gracie over at The Red Kitchen Project has an amazing recipe for Vegetarian Four-Cheese Lasagna Rolls that are a must-make during anytime of the year.

August 5: National Waffle Day / National Oyster Day
This Toaster Waffle Sandwich recipe is sure to fulfill your needs on this day.

  1. Wish there was an Eat-All-You-Want-And-Not-Gain-Weight-Day!

  2. Hey, Lady! Thanks for the shout-out. I was just thinking about lasagna yesterday and hoping the weather cools down soon so I can actually *make* something that requires an hour of oven time. How’s it going??
