I am not the smartest person in the world, but I think I am generally intelligent. Sometimes, however, I am awestruck by innovations that are really more common sense than revolutionary. Today, that came to me in the form of our slow cooker meal (#7 of 100 for the year). Sandra gave me a box of recipe cards for the slow cooker, and today I made ravioli lasagna. I'm a big fan of anything that combines meat sauce, cheese, and pasta, yet I never considered that I could turn two steps of traditional lasagna--laying the noodles then covering with cheese--by using a cheese-filled noodle for a layer. I just never thought about it. Turns out, it's delicious! Richard and I both approved, and I am looking forward to having leftovers for lunch tomorrow. But the fun doesn't stop there! Because the exact recipe I used is already on AllRecipes, you can experience the joy for yourself!

Beyond my slow cooking endeavors, I also had a productive day at work, got a short workout in, attended an alumnae Panhellenic meeting, and read for my Structural Equation Modeling class tomorrow. I am learning so much about confirmatory and exploratory factor analysis, and it's only the second week of the semester! Provided that I can keep the different techniques straight, I have the potential to be unstoppable in the near future...even if I sometimes lack common sense.
Something that made today great: I squeezed in some training for Semper 5ive between work and my alumnae Panhellenic meeting!
