things of note

Today, I thought I left my phone at home. And I felt naked. ALL. DAY. It's not like I wasn't at my computer all day either and couldn't check my email. It's just that I didn't have it. And there were people I wanted to text. And BBM. AND I COULDN'T DO IT. I think I depend on my BlackBerry too much. But it's good to know I'm not alone:

At about 4:45, I found my phone. At the bottom of my purse. I'm an idiot.

Lately, I've been really thinking about investing in a DSLR camera. I've wanted to try photography for a really long time, but haven't had the money to invest in a good camera. I have my point-and-shoot, but as you could probably tell, it doesn't take the best pictures in the world. Anywho, I've been hunting around Craigslist and eBay and found a couple Canon Rebels there for decent prices. Anyone got any insight on what I should be looking for? Help a sistah out!

In other news, the boyfriend and I put together a sort of noodle casserole/lasagna thing last night to re-heat for tonight's dinner. It turned out pretty fantastically. Maybe you should make it for your ruver for Valentine's Day. Oh, you'd like the recipe? Here you go.

Ziti Casserole

1 box ziti
1 can diced tomatoes (or tomato sauce...we didn't have any of that though)
1 tub ricotta cheese
1 egg
salt and pepper
garlic powder
other spices/herbs to your liking
freshly grated parmesan cheese
about 1/2 package turkey pepperoni

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook pasta in boiling, salted water as directed on box. Drain and place back in pot. Add tomatoes and spices (to your liking) and mix together. Set aside. Whisk egg by itself. In a medium-sized bowl, combine ricotta cheese with egg, a touch of garlic powder, salt, pepper and other spices/herbs (to your liking).

Butter a medium-sized casserole dish, then add an even layer of pasta. Scoop a thin layer of ricotta over pasta, patting down firmly. Scatter turkey pepperoni (or regular pepperoni...we were trying to be healthy. Slash I had it leftover from my chicken parm) and freshly grated parmesan. Repeat until ricotta is gone (roughly 3 layers). Bake in oven for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and gooey.
