Thread Starter 
Ive just made 2 salads one for me and bf and pasta.
Now its sitting there warm waiting for bf to come home. (the pasta that is)
I did a very easy meal

ITs barilla maccheroni with the Barilla Jar of Basilico. Its actually really good quality for jar food IMO!

it's yumm...you fill a casserole dish with stuffing (the little cubed bread) or torn up peices of bread and then you add whatever fillers you want i either do chicken, broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini, or zucchini, sun dried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts, after you add your fillers you mix up 3 cups of half and half, 3 eggs, and half a package of hidden valley ranch powder, and pour that over everything...then bake for about an hour

hm sounds interesting but what is hidden valley ranch powder?
post #9 of 45
Hidden valley ranch powder is the dry packet that you can use to make your own ranch dressing.
post #10 of 45
omg...hidden valley ranch is a brand of ranch dressing, and they make it in little powder packets that you can mix with sour cream to make your own...very good especially if you like ranch...if you ever need good recipes, my husband is a chef and my parents owna catering business, so i have tons!

wow, that's too bad, when they make it at work they use the powder, but i'll try and find a recipe on how to make it from scratch...in the meantime i'll try and post some recipes of other yummy stuff

You all are an ambitious bunch, that's for sure! Half of the things people mention on here I either have no idea what they are, or I gulp back anxiety at the thought of prep time involved, what my place would look like after, and if I would burn the hell out of whatever I'm making!

Though I think I am going to cook a pasta casserole tonight... Cooked pasta (hard to burn!), pasta sauce, tomatoes, with melted cheese throughout. No Lean Cuisine for me tonight! Though I tried the new LC pizza and it's awesome.

Jambalaya is very easy to make and there is little prep time. As a matter of fact, once the meats and veggies are cooked (maybe 20 min) you just throw everything else in the pot and leave it alone for about an hour.

It's a French-Cajun (Creole) dish. If you're interested, I'll send you the recipe.

Later on tonight I'll be having leftovers from my dad's birthday last night! It'll be roast beef, mashed potatos, yorkshire, and my mom's delicious gravy! It's always nice to be able to bring homemade leftovers from home back to your place. Comforting in a way.
post #17 of 45
I made sweet and sour chicken last night and wanted to have the leftovers for dinner, but I just found out I have to stay at work late and then rush to my class so it will have to be the lunch cart at school Although it's actually not too bad, it has healthy food alternatives too.
post #18 of 45
I dunno. I'm gonna try to sweet talk the hubby into cooking. He NEVER cooks for me anymore. They think once they've snagged you, they don't have to try as hard anymore I've worked hard today mowing and weedeating so I'm really not cooking. Hopefully he'll fire up the grill and grill some steak, corn, and potatoes!!!

I'm home from work today with dd who has bronchitis! So I had a roast, marinaded in teriaki sauce, and it is slow cooking with baby carrots. And although mashed potatoes sound good, I'll just add some frozen variety veggies to round out the meal.

I haven't cooked too much lately, because like Vespa said, by the time you cook it, & clean up, it is just a lot of bother! If I just microwave something or pick up a pizza the clean up is QUICK! But I'm overweight, and dh's cholesterol is rather high, so I need to get better at it.
post #20 of 45
Sure, sounds great! I don't know if I'd cook it, but if it's easy enough I may give it a shot. Never had creole food either, so why not!

Oh, I hear ya... too much work, and I tend to burn everything! If you have high cholesterol, perhaps the Lean Cuisine pizza would be in order...

Hopefully, hub decided on something while he was at the grocery store today, if not, I have my suspicions that it will be another bowl of Frosted Flakes! I have discovered that there is one good thing about him cooking at the bakery for lunch and not wanting to cook for dinner.....I've lost 8 lbs in the past two weeks!

He can always add salt. You can't take it out.

Not sure what it's going to be for us, but I'm thinking I haven't done pork chops for a while....we'll see.
