On Sunday, we had our favorite most versatile meal, Italian Bread Pizza…I swear I could eat this every night and it would be so different based on the toppings.
On Monday night, we had Pasta shells with sauteed peas and tomatoes. Tomato sauce makes me sick, but fresh tomatoes seasoned and sauteed I can handle. Even better when mixed with frozen peas and a bit of diced onion…the taste is amazing. After the veggies were done and the pasta was cooked, I tossed the veggies over the pasta and mixed it all up. Then I sprinkled a bit of Parmesan and mozzarella cheese on top. I didn’t over do it on the cheese, just a bit..enough for some stickiness and flavor.
Dino ate every last bite of his dinner…it was easy and a BIG hit.
On Tuesday we had homemade Chinese Food and it rocked. We recently bought Chinese food and it was too expensive and the amount in each container shrunk. Janine suggested making our own, so I did. Thanks for the idea babe. I used white rice, frozen Asian stir fry veggies, and chicken breasts which I marinated. I baked the chicken and veggies in our cast iron skillet. The meal was PERFECT and a new family favorite. We are going to make it again next week.
On Thursday we had leftover pizza…mmmmm…still so good.
On Friday, I made another favorite, rice and beans.
I cooked the ground pork, broccoli, and cauliflower in the cast iron skillet. Then added it to the tray. Then I sprinkled the onion, mushroom seasoning on top of the pork mixture. Next I scooped the half cooked gnochi on top. After fully cooked in oven, sprinkle with cheese and let melt.
In retrospect, I could have mixed it all together in the cast iron skillet…oh well.
What meals did you plan? How did they work out? Did you change plans?
Who else has had it with the snow?
