These lasagna bites are definitely a step up from your regular nachos and popcorn. Use your favorite lasagna recipe, all-purpose flour, eggs, Italian seasoning, breadcrumbs, salt, black pepper, and canola oil to make it. Serve it with your parmesan cheese and marinara sauce.

Make your Barrington, NJ apartment look like a theater! String up twinkle lights, use a projector, make your own “Now Playing” sign, and hang up your favorite movie posters to make your living room feel like a theater room. Put out your own concession stand and stock it with snacks and drinks to make the place feel even more authentic.


Movie Recommendation


Spirited Away (2012)

From Roger Ebert: “Viewing Hiyao Miyazaki's ‘Spirited Away’ for the third time, I was struck by a quality between generosity and love. On earlier viewings I was caught up by the boundless imagination of the story. This time I began to focus on the elements in the picture that didn't need to be there. Animation is a painstaking process, and there is a tendency to simplify its visual elements. Miyazaki, in contrast, offers complexity. His backgrounds are rich in detail, his canvas embraces space liberally, and it is all drawn with meticulous attention. We may not pay much conscious attention to the corners of the frame, but we know they are there, and they reinforce the remarkable precision of his fantasy worlds.”
