Interview with an elf...

or so Deborah thought! I cracked up when I read her blog post HERE. Deborah is a former Hero Hostess with Hero Arts who recently contacted me for an interview. So sweet! Please check out the interview and her other "Wednesday Wonders", a great feature where she interviews and features the work of some amazing papercrafters.
The interview also references my favorite recipe ever, Crockpot Lasagna. I got this recipe from my friend Shelley Dodge. It's awesome! Here's the recipe:

Crockpot Lasagna
8-9 "no-boil" lasagna noodles
26 oz. jar pasta sauce (any flavor)
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 lb. ground beef
16 oz. jar alfredo sauce
3 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
1. Spray large oval crockpot with nonstick spray. Spread about 1/2 c. pasta sauce in bottom of crockpot. 2. Cook ground beef in large skillet until no longer pink; drain. Stir in remaining pasta sauce and 8 oz. tomato sauce. 3. Layer 3 lasagna noodles over pasta sauce in crockpot, breaking as needed to fit. 4. Top with 1/3 of the alfredo sauce, 1 c. mozzarella, and 1/3 of the ground beef mixture. 5. Repeat layers twice more: noodles, alfredo, mozzarella, ground beef; noodles, alfredo, mozzarella, ground beef. 6. Sprinkle 1/4 c. parmesan cheese over top of last layer. 7. Cover and cook on LOW for 3.5 - 4 hours.

I loved reading your interview with Deborah, and I think that recipe sounds awesome. I have also been to the Soviet Union (in 1973). When did you go....what was the occasion, just traveling? I'd be very interested to hear about your experiences.
