To Print or Not to Print - How I Ended Up With Lasagna Soup

Last Friday morning I went to my local Whole Foods where they were having a special on organic, grown in the USA zucchini. One of my favorite vegetables so of course I had to buy some. Next came the planning phase, what to do with it? Fortunately I
had recently surfed AR lasagna recipes and came across an enticing recipe for zucchini lasagna. Great, decision made. A little while later I looked up the recipe to double check how long it would take to prepare and cook. It was at this point when the little
voice inside my head said, maybe you should print it, just to be safe. Most of the time I don't print recipes, I take my laptop into the kitchen and place in it on the island where I have access to it but where it is away from my prep area. I also like the
idea of going green. However, this time I had the nagging thought I should print it. I should have listened to the little voice in my head (contrary to what some people say hearing voices isn't always bad). Later in the day it's time to get my yummy zucchini
lasagna prepared, I go to my laptop and, you guessed it, no Internet service. Panicked I went to the main computer, restart it, still no Internet service. I wait a little while, try again, no Internet, and no recipe. At this point I decided to go ahead
and make the lasagna from memory. How bad could it be, I thought? I remembered the basics, how to layer it, how to prepare the zucchini, how to make the sauce, etc. About 1 and 1/2 hours later it's done. When I took it out of the oven it smelled great,
but looked a little watery and runny. Maybe after it sits for a few minutes it will set up, I thought. It didn't happen. We had to eat my zucchini lasagna out of soup bowls with spoons . Good news, it tasted fantastic, everyone loved it, no leftovers!
Too bad I can't remember how I made it or I'd have a new recipe - Zucchini Lasagna Soup.
