Skillet Lasagna

Sometimes I'm amazed by the blessings in my life.  


A husband that loves me unconditionally.  Friends that are always there.  Family that never falters.  Health, a good job, a comfortable home.  And skillet lasagna.  


Skillet Lasagna


It will forever be on my gratitude list. 


Brandon, the man who has recently (gasp) taken a stand against casserole-esq dishes, even loved it.  Seriously guys.  This stuff is the business.
