So how are y’all liking the new changes to my blog??  I absolutely love makeovers {of all kinds} and have been wanting to give my bloggy a lil facelift for awhile now, so I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!
So many exciting things are going on this week, not just with my blog.  For one, this is a 3-day work week for me AND it’s the final week in our current office.  My commute won’t change too much, but I am getting a bigger office with a fresh new paint job hehe.  So we’re spending the entire week moving stuff, which is less than thrilling, but at least that means less real work to do!
As for what we ate this weekend, these lasagna roll-ups are a MUST try!!!  I love this recipe because not only is it a great twist on classic lasagna, but you can serve them in perfect little portions so you don’t over indulge.  These were so easy to make and tasted so good.  I especially loved the chunks of zucchini and fresh tomato it called for, yum!  I must admit though, the leftovers were definitely my favorite part!  They’re also the perfect week night meal as you can make these ahead of time, freeze them and then just pop them in the oven when you’re ready to eat.
Easy peeeeasy.
