Baked Cheesy Pasta

This is less of a recipe and more along the lines of food assembly, but it’s super easy, versatile, and it feeds a crowd, no problem.  It is a great potluck dish, it can be kept in the freezer then popped in the oven, and if you have leftovers, they’re yummy too.  Kids love it, and it’s easily adaptable for both vegetarians and meat eaters alike.  I have a friend who is a new mom, so I’m publishing this now because it’s especially suitable for when you have a bad case of baby brain.

Meal Plan for the Week of September 22, 2018

This week is a mixed bag of food.  On Sunday I’m supplying a meal for a friend who recently had back surgery, so Saturday night’s dinner is supplying that–big batch baked pasta.  I’m going old school on Sunday, Mexican on Monday, and experimenting on Wednesday.  How could I not when a local International grocery store is advertising goat ribs?  Goat Ribs!  I have to try that!  Wish me luck, though…

Meal Plan for the Week of July 28, 2018

My younger son is off to camp this week, so I don’t have to take his dislikes into consideration!  Actually, he’s pretty good–there’s not much he won’t eat.  I am going to a potluck networking dinner on Monday night, while the other two men/boys are home, so there are two dinner options: one I’m bringing with me, one the boys are eating at home. Which are you going to choose?  On Wednesday night I am hosting an information session for friends at our home, so some-kind-of-take-out is in the plan.  Preferably something with quick and easy clean up.  There are more links than ever in this week’s plan.  It’s time to revisit old favourites that are usually baked in the oven but will be done on the grill instead.

Meal Plan for the Week of March 17, 2018

This week is pretty chicken-intensive because boneless, skinless chicken breast is on sale for $3/lb at Loblaws.  My tip for easy weeknight meal prep is to cook extra chicken for dinner on Sunday night and use the extra cooked chicken later on in the week.  The featured recipe this week will be Sunday night’s Moroccan Chicken, and will be posted Sunday morning.  If you follow along and make extra chicken, you are all set for Tuesday night’s Cobb Salad.  It is my youngest son’s birthday on Thursday, so dinner out has been worked into the Plan this week.  Maybe you can substitute something from one of the previous plans into your week, or fill in the blank with one of your own family favourites and share below.
