Pinterest IRL: Slow Cooker Lasagna

Happy Friday Eve my friends!  The week has flown by and I’m looking forward to a fun-filled weekend that lies ahead-bridesmaid dress shopping, birthdays and baby showers, oh my!

This week has been a very brisk one in Milwaukee.  A high of mid-40’s just came out of nowhere!  Dinners this week have consisted of soup and slow cooker meals.  When I was planning our meals on Sunday, I resorted to my Pinterest boards for some inspiration and decided to try out slow cooker lasagna.  It looked amazing and there wasn’t much prep work involved. WIN!

Slow Cooker Lasagna

The whole preparation took a total of about 15 minutes and it made plenty so that we were able to eat some for leftovers.  Overall, I thought the recipe was very good.  I will definitely be making it again, but I think the next time around I would add more sauce.  I like saucy lasagna and I didn’t feel like this had a lot BUT I do have a bigger slow cooker than what I think the normal recipe is for.


It looks like a ton of cheese on top only because I forgot to save some meat sauce for the top layer..Oops!  Hence why I needed more sauce 🙂  Definitely not dairy free, so if anyone has a good dairy free lasagna recipe they’d like to share with me, I would greatly appreciate it!

So, I read some very exciting news tonight via Facebook!  If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know by now that barre-style workouts are my favorite toning and strengthening workout.  Well…Milwaukee is FINALLY getting a barre studio!!!!!! I feel like a little kid at Christmas 🙂 Barre Bee Fit will be opening some time soon in the Third Ward and I cannot wait.  While, I’ve never tried this particular studio (they did have one in Chicago, but I had a membership at the Bar Method), I urge everyone in the Milwaukee area to try it out! I’ve tried a few other barre classes and it really is an awesome workout.

I’m off to catch up with some other blogs, have a great weekend!
