Some friends invited us to their place for dinner last night, and she was serving a favorite recipe... lasagna. In the past, I loved her lasagna and usually had heaping servings for seconds and thirds. So, I felt a little nervous about going there last night. Would I be able to stick to my not overeating goal? Or would her lasagna do me in?
She had the food set out to serve buffet style at her counter, and I carefully took a small portion of lasagna. When I bit into it, I was greatly relieved... she had gone heavy on the oregano which (in my opinion) ruined the flavor. Hooray!! I did not even eat all of the small portion I took, let alone desire any more.
(I am not a fan of dried oregano. Whenever I use it, I put in less than half of what the recipe suggests. I DO like fresh oregano though!)
