Saturday morning Karl, Harry and K.C. had a meeting with an advertising and marketing company for some help keeping Roundboy Ovens growing strong. It seems that lately in my house there are a lot of new beginnings. I am having fun helping Amanda set up her new apartment and get ready for her new job and a new beginning to her life. When you children move on and out it is a new beginning for parents also. Sometimes that has been scary for me but lately Karl and I are really enjoying it. We are proud but also we enjoy our kids as adults and enjoy some freedom for ourselves. Starting a new business and enjoying the oven has been a real good experience for us. I think when you enjoy the product you sell and enjoy meeting new people you can't help but to be a success!
That brings me to brick oven lasagna, we went out for a first class dinner for Amanda's graduation. Damenti's is one of our favorite places and yet both kids and Karl could not wait to make pizza on Sunday! I was the one who enjoyed the dinner out the most because I had a break from cooking. So pizza it was on Sunday before K.C. went back to New Jersey. We had our usual favorite pies but as I was buying the things I needed I kept thinking what could I use the left over toppings and cheese for. I always have too much toppings and not enough dough. I decided to make lasagna and add the sausage, mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes sauce and wine that was left over into the lasagna. I would of course bake it in our Roundboy oven! I made my sauce, noodles and cheese mix up but put the lasagna together after we were done with the pizza. I just added the left over toppings right in. It was delicious and easy. Dinner solved for Monday night!

|A new spot for our Roundboy oven. I want it close to the barn for parties.|
|Slicing the mozzarella cheese instead of the shredding side worked perfect. When the cheese is shredded it is too fine and melts fast. when I hand slice it the cheese melts too slow. This side of the grater worked perfect!|
|The oven was nice and hot from baking pizza. Karl took the fire out and left a few hot coals. He put the lasagna in and the door on the oven. He turned if after 30 min. and the lasagna was done after 30 min. more.|
|I saved a little wine before dinner for the lasagna because at our house there is never some left over wine!|
