"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Personal Notes:
I love lasagna. My mom makes lasagna on my birthday. Sometimes I help her. It is really good. Last year on my birthday, my mom made it when I was opening my presents. Then I watched the lasagna cook in the oven. When the lasagna came out of the oven, I ate the lasagna and it was so good. Then I ate some of my cake. The cake was good also. After that, I watched TV. Lasagna is my favorite food. My mom makes the best lasagna.
