T Stands for Thank You to Caring Friends

Happy Tuesday everyone. Another T Day has rolled around. :)  this is a cold and blustery Tuesday in m neck of the woods and the ground is still a bit white from yesterday's snow.
And its my last workday of the week before the long holiday weekend begins.
With Thanksgiving in a couple of days, I thought on this T Day I would share something I am thankful for. Here's a DELICIOUS veggie lasagna that one of my friends and coworkers made for me (and my family)  when my husband came home from the hospital.

It was made with tomatoes, spinach, eggplant, mushrooms, green peppers and fresh herbs.
It was so good I ate it all. You can see my choice of drink with dinner that night was a big glass of cold milk.
It always impresses me to see how people's kindness comes out when you need them. :)
Such a great sentiment with Thanksgiving coming here in the US in just a couple of days.
Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog to link up your T Day drink (and food) and be sure to check out what everyone else is enjoying.
So I'm tired this morning because yesterday was a pretty CRAZY day. A couple of inches of now melted snow made the roads bad for my commute into work. A tragic car roll over closed down the highway and so myself, along with everyone else, had to drive through one of the cities-right through downtown, and so it ended up taking me 2 hours to get to work (and made me 45 minutes late for the start of school). Then last night the National Honor Society group I advise ran a class competition for scholarships in the names of 3 students who died tragically in previous years here at school. The event was successful, and the parents of these students are always appreciative. I am also thankful to my 2 coworkers who advise with me, and all the awesome students on the NHS board who really are the workers and pulled off this event. 
So today I am ready to wrap up my classes and start a relaxing long weekend eating turkey! 
Thanks for stopping by to visit.
And Happy T day and Happy Thanksgiving (if you celebrate)  to those of you who only stop by my blog for T.

What? You didn't save me some of that lasagna? It looks absolutely wonderful and meatless is even better.

Your post shows you have a lot to be thankful for, and melted snow is actually one of them. Hope you have a fun, safe, family oriented Thanksgiving.

Thanks for sharing your lasagna and milk with us for T this Tuesday. I want that recipe! I think I'd add black olives and fresh basil to mine.

My mouth is watering looking at your lasagna. It looks delicious! I wonder if we'll ever have snow again. Right now it's partly cloudy and 65F lol I hope you have a nice break and a Happy Thanksgiving. Happy T Tuesday!

What a wonderful thing to receive. Good food when you are busy caring for your husband and have no time to cook. That lasagna looks really tasty. I would gladly eat that although it is vegetarian.
I'm so glad your hubby is slowly recovering. (I read all your blog posts but don't always comment...sorry)
I wish you and hubs a very relaxing thanksgiving weekend.
Happy T-Day,

Enjoy your Thanksgiving break.
Happy T day

That lasagna looks so good!!!! I love both traditional and "veggie" lasagna ♥♥♥♥ The kindness of friends is always so heart warming. What a frustrating ride to work! I hate driving in bad weather....in fact I have almost reached the point of hating driving period :( Not good when you live in the country. Happy Thanksgiving !!!
