Cooking Lasagna

I've selected yet another time-consuming recipe to cook. A couple of weeks ago it was red beans and rice. Today it's lasagna. This is reinforcing the idea that cooking for just one person from scratch isn't feasible, as the prep and cook time for one person isn't far from the prep time for several people, or it's not feasible to scale it down to serving size of just one person.

I tried to get started about 9:30 or 10am. Getting all the ingredients laid out, doing a fine chop to the onions, celery, carrots, and garlic, and prepping the meat took a lot longer than expected. The meat sauce has been cooking since about 11:15am and takes two hours. Even once that is done I still have to prep for the Lasagna itself, and then it still has another 45 to 60 minutes to go in the oven. I was trying to have this done by 1pm-ish. Once again lunch won't be for an hour or two after planned.

I would make a bad parent cooking for their kid(s). >_>
