In the book "The Mystery of the Lost Recipe," the two main characters help a locate restaurant locate the restaurant's missing lasagna recipe (see my book review here). So to get into the spirit of the book, I put together this felt lasagna set, including a lasagna recipe book. Before we could assemble the lasagna, I hid the recipe and together, J and I searched for it. Once we found the recipe, it was time to build, cook, and eat a lasagna!

|Adding the sauce.|
|Now for some cheese.|
Once the lasagna was assembled, J's imagination took off. Of course, we needed to cook the lasagna so J used our storage ottoman as an oven.
|In it goes!|
|"Look, mom. It's cooked."|
Then it was time to eat the lasagna, but first J had to blow on it to cool it off.
Shortly after, J started making letters and numbers with the shredded cheese. He also assembled them into a dinosaur shape and talked about making dinosaur bones. Such a great imagination he has!
