My Zucchini Lasagna dish was recently inspired by something I came across while enjoying a lifestyle change with my husband. As many of you know, I often times go through lifestyle changes that I would almost label “phases” (i.e., no alcohol, eat clean, no dairy, no gluten, no carbs, etc.). I’ve gone through so many diet phases that even I can’t keep up with all of them, let alone my family and friends. But, this lifestyle change is different, and all my husband’s doing.
Based on a blog he has been following recently, Mr. Money Mustache, my husband decided that we would try an experiment in simplification. Each month, we (actually he) is going to make a change to our current lifestyle that will cut out the frills, make it less extravagant, uncomplicate things.
The first thing to go was our landscaper. Over the past few weeks, I watch my husband’s blood, sweat and tears over trying to maintain a pristine lawn, battle the weeds and trim dead palm tree leaves. I wonder if it’s all worth it. Apparently, this gives him a sort of mental peace that I don’t seem to understand (probably the same as him not understanding how spending hours in the kitchen brings me to my happy place.)
The second thing to go is our DISH Network (gasp!). Yes, all one and a half million channels. Gone. Now, our evenings consist of playing cards, playing carrom, reading and listening to music, for the most part. The limited amount of TV we do watch consists of PBS, various news channels and a random collection of short recipe clips (yes, random short recipe clips). And voila! My recipe for Zucchini Lasagna is born!
