Cooking Craze

Posted on

Something amazing happened this week.  I made dinner TWO nights in a row!  AND the dinners were new recipes!  Yep.  It’s Ok.  I’ll wait while you catch your breath.

Are you breathing again?  Good.  My family is still in shock. 😉

Maybe you do this too? – Pin a ton of yummy recipes to your Pinterest boards and never make anything.  That’s me.  You’d think I like to cook if you saw my food boards.  The truth is I hate to cook.  Hate it.  It’s not really the effort to cook, it’s thinking about what to cook.

So what did I cook you ask?  Sunday night I made this…

TWO TIMIN’ PASTA BAKE

1 box penne pasta

1 (15 oz.) jar Alfredo sauce

1 (24 oz.) jar Marinara sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

You can get the directions here.  It’s super easy and very yummy.

Monday night I made this…

Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup in a Slow Cooker

You can get the recipe and directions here.  (Please forgive me if this is not the original source.  I’ve seen this recipe in so many places.)

The soup was a definite hit because my son said “This is pretty good”.  A true miracle, believe me!

I know my friends and family are thinking right now “WHO ARE YOU?”  Well, I like to shake things up a bit.  I can be wild and crazy.  But I do think cooking for the third night in a row might be going a little too bonkers.  I will have to see if I think the family can handle it. 😉

Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

Posted on

Happy Friday Y’all!

Here’s something that doesn’t happen every day…  I’m sharing a recipe that contains MEAT!  Pick your jaws up off the ground and keep reading.  😉  This is a recipe for Turkey Meatloaf.  My lovely friend and neighbor took pity on me when my Hubby was out of town and offered to feed me and the kids.  When she told me she was cooking turkey meatloaf, I have to say I was a little nervous.  She’s a great cook, but meat??  (I’m not a vegetarian, I just don’t like meat.)

It was AMAZING, FABULOUS, YUMMY!  I even asked for seconds!  This recipe came from a cookbook (I will find out which one), but she tweeked it a bit, using lean turkey instead of ground beef.

RECIPE

1 1/2 lbs. lean ground turkey
1 cup fresh bread crumbs (two heals)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 8-oz. can Hunt’s Tomato Sauce
1 egg
1 1/2 tsps. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup water
2 Tbs. brown sugar, packed
2 Tbs. prepared mustard
1 Tbs. vinegar

DIRECTIONS

In a medium bowl, lightly mix turkey, bread crumbs, onion, 1/2 can Hunt’s Tomato Sauce, egg, salt and pepper.  Shape into loaf in a shallow baking pan.  Combine remaining Hunt’s Tomato Sauce with rest of ingredients; pour over loaf.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/4 hours.  Baste loaf several times.  Makes 5-6 servings.

ENJOY!
