Observations about the universe, life, Lausanne and me

Last weekend I tried to whip up a fish lasagna à la maison. I thought the combination of fish and spinach would be good (and give you the strength of Popeye and the mental acuity of Einstein at the same time!). And it was, only the lasagna-dough was not cooked through completely, because it was a bit too dry.
Too dry? Thing is, I normally use frozen vegetables for my vegetarian lasagna, because I am lazy. Those produce much water while thawing out in the oven, so you have to be careful to have a real thick béchamel-sauce, or else your lasagna will swim. Accordingly, my béchamel-sauce is normally thick enough to stick to the wall (don't ask), which is not good when you have drained your spinach too much.
Also, next time I will buy better fish than that of the brick variety. Still, I am quite happy that it turned out as well as it did.
