Try bite-sized lasagna as an appetizer in honor of National Lasagna Day

I had never considered lasagna as an appetizer or even capable of being served as an appetizer but Lasagna Fritta is a new menu item at Olive Garden.  This appetizer is parmesan-breaded lasagna pieces, fried and served over alfredo sauce, topped with parmesan cheese and marinara sauce.  In honor of National Lasagna Day, if you don't feel like making lasagna at home or just want a little bit of lasagna, try this delicious dish!

(500) Days of Summer is an enchanting and original romantic comedy

Wondering what the title of the movie means since obviously there aren't 500 days in summer? In this offbeat romantic comedy, Summer refers not to the season but to Summer (Zooey Deschanel), the smart, independent woman who is the product of divorce and doesn't believe in love. Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is the exact opposite of Summer. He truly believes that he is going to meet his soulmate and that they will live happily ever after. But this story is an anti-fairytale and the narrator tells us up front that this is not a love story. The movie jumps back and forth in the 500 days of the relationship between Summer and Tom and showcases a clever structure which tells the story by events rather than in a linear, chronological way.

Wacky, wild and weird Wednesday fashion: condom clothes

Beginning today, every Wednesday there will be a feature of wacky, wild and weird fashions including clothes, shoes, handbags and fashion accessories. The first collection of bizarre clothes is made from condoms. Creating clothes from condoms shows creativity but would you really wear an outfit made from them? I applaud the idea of thinking outside the box but these dresses and clothes are definitely not something I can see most people actually wearing in public.
