remember i told you i might be writing about food soon---well here goes
robyn and i collaborated on a couple of dinners this week---you know what i just might go ahead and tell you our week's dinner menu and please don't judge haha-
monday night--- we made my "famous" corned beef hash casserole---
four cans of hash
layer two in casserole dish--flattening a bit
spread with your favorite tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce
sprinkle with salt pepper and garlic salt
top with eight slices of swiss cheese
repeat next layer--topping with extra sauce
cook at 350 for about an hour--letting it set up some before serving
this time making it, it didn't set up well and was runny---i know sounds disgusting but really it was just as tasty---we changed it up by serving it over toast
we had frozen yellow squash with it--i tell ya squash does not go far in our house--we had four bags of squash with no left-overs---but i did take out a serving to share with my dad the next day along with the cbh casserole---and again i say the frozen squash is just as good to me as the fresh---just add a little oil of choice---fry onions--adding squash with no liquid and cook away---adding lots of pepper and some salt and garlic salt--butter towards the end
tuesday night--robyn wanted to try something different--"creamy tomato chicken penne"
combine your favorite tomato sauce with cream cheese 2oz (we would use a whole small package next time)
add parmesan cheese about 1/4 cup--wouldn't hurt to add more
of course make your penne like usual pasta
we used already cooked chicken pieces and heated them before adding to dish
add frozen thawed spinach--squeezing out liquid
add all together in skillet and cook for about 15 min-
with this dish we served garlic bread and fried corn---note fry longer and use white shoe-peg
we were really busy so it was easy night
canned chunky beef vegetable soup over rice with biscuits---remember no judging!
but because i was judging myself--i added a simple but delicious new creation fruit salad
just any kind of your favorite fruit--i used canned tropical fruit
add finely shredded cheddar cheese to taste and your favorite coleslaw dressing---big big hit and only change i would make is to present it in a prettier dish! oh and btw--the guys(esp. dillon)love the soup and rice thing!
okay yeah that's not a whole week but can't make this blog but so long--happy weekend and happy cooking!
