lasagna – vegetarian style

For those of you who like American Football, you know that Sunday is game day. Here in Denmark they broadcast the games live (meaning pretty much in the middle of the night!). We have our friend Kristian over for dinner and then the guys get into a comfy position on the couch and enjoy hours of football. So manly!

I love taking care of the two by making manly food. Well, most of the times. Tonight we’ll have a girly dish: vegetarian lasagna. I tried this recipe in school and fell totally in love with it.

6 portions:

1 onion, finely chopped

1-? cloves garlic (see, I would add 5 – it’s totally up to you)

1 1/2 tbs. olive oil

8 oz. (250g) mushrooms, sliced

1 can peeled tomatoes, chopped

1 small can tomato puree

2 tsp. oregano

2 tsp. basil

14 oz. (400g) carrots, shredded

8 oz. (250g) leek, sliced

12 lasagna noodles, whole wheat would be nice here

8 oz. (250g) mornay sauce

4 oz. (125g) grated cheese

salt and pepper to taste

Combine onion, garlic and olive oil in a sauté pan and cook over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Stir and add leeks and carrots. Add tomatoes, tomato puree and herbs. Turn down the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°F (200° C). Spread a little bit of mornay sauce on the bottom of a baking pan. Put a layer of lasagna noodles down first, add 1/3 of the vegetable sauce and top it with a bit of mornay sauce. Repeat two more times. You wanna end with a layer of lasagna noodles, topped with cheese and lots of mornay sauce. Cook for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve it with some whole wheat bread and a fresh salad.

I will add a picture later.



going to the mainland – road trip, baby!

Tonight I’ll be on a road-trip to the mainland. Struer Saints will be hosting an off season cup for flagfootball. And my team will be going (and kicking all the guys’ asses). Well the last one was kinda wish thinking. But it’s gonna be fun and exciting. Hope I’ll get the chance to take some pictures, so the ones of you that still don’t know what flagfootball is get an idea ;-)

Flag.roadtripGO FOXES!

food tasting I

With one week left on my food analysis report, I arranged a food tasting last night! Friends from both my and Morten’s flagfootball team came to lend me their well-trained taste buds. After tasting three different tomato soups, we enjoyed some home made chili and watched an NFL game. A night well spent!

Tomato SoupsKnorr instant soup, organic tomato-basil soup, Knorr ready-to-use soup – who is the winner?

IMG_4163Sshh! Food reviewers at work!

IMG_4167Home made hazelnut brownies and NFL, it doesn’t get much better than that.

football cupcakes

How about we’ll all just pretend that I haven’t just been gone for over a month? ;-)

School has started again and so far I’ve kept my this-time-I’m-gonna-be-a-good-student-promise. Did all my reading. wrote my reports, attended classes!

Some of you might remember me joining the flagfootball team. I love being part of the team! And I love the sport even more. I used to play volleyball but never really reached the level of ‘goodness’. I was a very average player. Flagfootball on the other hand seems to bring out my hidden talents. Seems like I’m not that shabby ;-)

We’ve been trying to spread the word about how awesome flagfootball is. So tomorrow we’ll host a Rookie Day and hope that a lot of girls come and get hooked. Also, it’s our QB’s birthday. So I’m baking cupcakes, that hopefully end up looking like these:

field trip

Today I went out shopping – more or less successfully. My mission was to get shoes – I came home with bags full of workout gear… You gotta look good working out! Try to guess what my favorite brand is ;-)

Morten really doesn’t enjoy shopping – which is not a problem, ’cause he got me as his very own personal shopper. Let’s hope he likes the things I picked out!

flag football

Today I watched Morten’s team train. There’s two matches on Sunday and I think I’m something like a cheerleader =)

Let’s go, REBELS, let’s go!

My appointment at the health club with Oliver went great. He showed my some essentials and tomorrow I’ll start with the cross trainer and some weights =)

health club

Today I finally signed into a health club called fitnessdk. My first workout: treadmill – 4.6 km. Tomorrow I’ll have a meeting with Oliver who will introduce me to the equipment and come up with a schedule – I’m excited! I also bought new running shoes. I’m very satisfied – today has been a good day!
