    The lasagna digression earlier in the thread led to this: baked lasagna and because I was cooking anyway, also chicken broccoli alfredo penne bake

    Both look outstanding! Eyes on the lasagna especially ... !!!

    My 17yo (6'3"+) son came in from lacrosse conditioning practice and promptly devoured 1/6th of the lasagna. It was apparently delicious.

    That leaves 5/6 for me, right?

    I recently discovered built (protein) bars. I was eating quest bars before, but I really love the built bars. Great taste!

    Egg whites.
    (I might've shared that here before - but it is still true. I've been having four or five almost every day for the past I-don't-know-how-many-days. I probably shared this here before, too (and I am sorry to repeat myself):
    I whip them up to stiff peaks, add seasonings, then spread out the big egg white "floof" onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, bake for roughly 15 minutes, and the final product is a "pita"- or "flatbread"-type concoction. (:
    (Due to various food sensitivities, I rely a lot on egg whites for protein. I try to make it less monotonous and more "fun" by preparing them in ways other than scrambling or boiling them (: ))

    Like @just_Tomek mentioned, you can buy this in shops. But there are great videos on YouTube if you want to make "fresh" furikake.

    Balsamic roasted fennel. It's so good it's up there with good chocolate right now. I made it with a good cherry balsamic vinegar last night.

    Did you make your own fire cider this fall, @VegjoyP or store-bought?

    Frozen bananas blitzed until creamy. I recently just discovered the wonder of frozen blitzed fruit.
    I am an ice cream lover, and this is very satisfying.

    Thanks for the tip! I usually throw mine out because I dont like how they are defrosted for baking.

    I'm rediscovering how good and pleasantly filling a yogurt bowl can be. I like Fage 0%, I used to like Siggi's but now prefer this. I even eat it plain sometimes, and trying savory ways to eat it too

    Definitely home made! Fire Cider; - ginger, horseradish, sweet onion, cayenne pepper, jalapeno, garlic, slice of meyer lemon, slice of blood orange, apple cider vinegar. Cut up all fresh, organic ingredients and put in Mason jar. Cover with apple cider. Use wax parchment under cap or use jar with plastic top. Let jars sit for 3 to 4 weeks, shaking each day. Thenstrain liquid and store in refrigerator. Take 1 to 3 TBSP in a little water daily. Use vegetables to make in salad, puree for cooking or dry, grind and use as seasoning

    Spinach. I buy bags of fresh spinach and saute with a little olive oil and lots of garlic. Also good in an omelette with mushrooms.

    Well toasted sourdough, cooled then spread thinly with good quality butter, a thin layer of Marmite topped with paper thin slices of proper cheese.

    I picked up Trader Joe's jarred Hot and Sweet Spicy Jalepeno Peppers and put them on vegetarian pizza tonight, they're so good I put extra on my pizza and ate the whole thing. I had a recipe to try tomorrow night but may switch it to something I can add these to instead! I'd be surprised if any are left at the end of the weekend.
