Actually subby, I believe Garfield PUNTS Odie off the table, nothing so gently as pushing, methinks.

reports of 8-year-old girls and lasagnas were greatly exaggerated?

I used crushed tomatoes (instead of a jar sauce, like Ragu) and small curd cottage cheese and ground turkey and turkey pepperoni

You need to water down your sauce a bit before you layer it. Also, the type of noodles you use make a big difference. AVOID the "you don't have to cook me" type and get the ones you boil first. Yes, it's a little bit more work but the texture difference makes a lot of difference!

She got turned down for a grant of only $200-$300??? Sheesh!
 
2012-04-28 06:55:59 PM
Tell her, her teacher and the parents thanks so much for wasting taxpayer money (easily totaling more than the food) and making the govt go through her application and turn it down.

Also tell her that if she didn't try and mess around with the Govt and realize that the Govt doesnt exist to pay
her pet projects then she'd be ready for the future.

She could have made 100 meals, sold them for a large profit, and fed the senior citizens the bootstraps she wouldn't need any more!!! It's not like we want to boomers around any longer 'cause we can't afford.

/was that any good? :)

Serious note: $300 for pre-cooked noodles and a "cheesy-spinach mix" to make 20 meals?

$15 would buy two or three of the small Stouffers up thread (quite good for box food) for each person...and she could have spent the entire $500 for even more buying in bulk.

Imagine being 80yo and forcing a smile when eating a rock hard lasagna an 8-year old made (especially if your false teeth got stuck in the noodles) when you know $500 coulda bought a pallet worth of tapioca puddin'! :)

I don't like those, I find them way too thin. Just par boil your noodles, that's the ticket.

I was talked into trying them a few years back and just kept my sauce a bit thin and I didn't see a whole lot of difference. Maybe I'll go back to par boiling some regular ones next time to see.

How about going 'Church''?

She deducts all of it as charitable donations and infaltes the expenses, adds up all the time of the volunteers as if they were paid employees, transportation and refridgeration costs etc..etc..and says she had a loss of $10,385.12!!

Or 'Big Oil'?
Claim that it was all R&D expenses on how best to procure, make and distribute lasagna. Results of which would only be shown (falsified) if audited.

Got any? Surely theres a farm subsidy in there....or make the lasagna in cool shapes and apply for NEA monies.

Nakito: There is no cottage cheese in lasagna!


I've been using cottage cheese in lieu of ricotta for years. Ricotta is too dry and dense for my taste. I prefer making a sauce from canned San Marzano tomatoes because most jarred sauces are too sweet from the HFCS they contain. I also leave out the meat and layer fresh spinach and zucchini between the sauce, cheese and noodles. I love spaghetti & meatballs and penne with sausage, but lasagna with meat just feels wrong to me.

I'm not a food snob, I swear! 8^)

This little girl didn't make the shake and bake and the girl in TFA didn't make the lasagnas either.

I'm so tired of stories of philanthropic kids. Let's get this straight, while she may have played a part here, she may have even come up with the idea, she helped, not organized, helped.

Giving more credit than is deserved is not going to help this child or the people that are being fed here. It only helps the journalist writing this crappy article.

The heros here are the local businesses that donated the money to make this happen. Without them, shes just a cute kid with good intentions

fark yeah. I lived in a place with no newspaper, but I LOVED Sunday comics - to the degree that my grandparents who lived in an actual city would collect them in a huge pile until I could get them on our yearly visits.

I friggin' loved them. Hell, my dog was named Grimmy.

Calvin and Hobbes still rules. Watterson was incredibly talented and all around a class act.

Cottage cheese looks like something a woman goes to the gynecologist for. Therefore, I cannot eat it. I'm one of those weird people who, if the food doesn't look appetizing, no matter how yummy it might be, I won't touch it.

Try fitting food into a sentence: "The doctor said I came down with a bad case of /asiago cheese/ and antibiotics won't touch it."

YMMV.
