Recent meals have been cheater freezer meals, not worth mentioning
But tonight we are having a casserole inspired by the caciqueinc.com shrimp chilaquiles recipe ... with less shrimp but also a package of soy chorizo, some steamed cauliflower and asparagus, a velveeta cheese sauce with ortega chiles, and the tortillas are the amazing La Tortilla Factory corn/flour blend tortillas which are freakin' fantastic.
last night i ended up at a new thai tapas bar and had a yummy sampling of chef selection appetizers. it included seaweed salad, mini spring rolls, bites of char grilled steak, and little bites of stuff i didn't know what it was...but was super yummy
tonight will be salmon with cheesy rice and broccoli.
I am trying a pintrest recipe of twice baked cauliflower and grilled pork steaks And some homemade bread.
This twice baked cauliflower was awesome! My husband, two toddlers and myself all had two helpings. Search the title of the recipe on Pinterest and it has the drool-worthy pictures and step by step instructions.
Twice Baked Cauliflower
(Makes 6-8 servings
1 large head cauliflower
4 oz. low fat cream cheese (do not use fat free)
1/2 cup low fat sour cream (do not use fat free)
1/4 cup minced green onions
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (If you only have finely grated Parmesan, use a bit less)
6 slices bacon, cooked until very crisp, fat blotted with paper towel and then crumbled
1 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese
(I used Kraft 2% milk sharp cheddar)
Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Cut out stem and core from cauliflower, and cut into small pieces. Cook in a microwave-safe bowl with a little water and cooked til until cauliflower is tender, but not overly soft. Drain well and mash with potato masher. Mix in cream cheese, sour cream, green onion, Parmesan, and 3/4 of the crumbled bacon.
Spread evenly in a medium-sized glass casserole dish. Sprinkle with low-fat cheddar cheese and reserved bacon. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
As usual, I did not do a ton of measuring and it turned out fine.
Your Twice Baked Cauliflower sounds awesome Trina, Thank You! Saved that in my recipe file and added cauliflower to my list! I don't do Pinterest...do you have to join to find a recipe?
We are having hamburger soup and grilled cheese sandwiches...pretty much some hamburger cooked with a big can/bottle of V-8 juice and some vegies and barley tossed in. Add whatever vegies you have or want and water if you think you need some to stretch the recipe for your family. You can add noodles instead of barley but we like barley better! I make this in a big stock pot and freeze some for another time. This is one of those add whatever you want recipes and I love it because the weather is cold and I am a soup freak!!
