March has been a relatively standard month around here! The weather is still brutally cold (WHY??) but we got a few days that gave us a hint of Spring. Landon discovered T-ball on those warm days and now is yearning to get out and play. Sadly last week an elementary school in my district burned down, leaving 450+ kids displaced. It's been a sad and chaotic time at school. I started a fundraiser through Amazon for the teachers and kids who lost everything and collected over 3,000 books in a week so that has been the highlight of my month for sure. Bring on April... I'm ready for warmer weather and more hours of daylight in the evening!
I was browsing Pinterest when I saw the picture above pop up. I knew it was my recipe and instantly wanted it. I ended up making it that night! I love this french onion pasta. Landon took one look at it and said, "EW! GROSS!" so needless to say it was just John and I enjoying this one!
Sticking with the pasta theme I took a tray of creamy veggie noodles out of the freezer for John and my mom to enjoy this month when I had conferences. I haven't been freezing meals as much as I used to and I really need to. It makes life so easy!
I feel like Landon is in such a food rut. He eats the same things over and over. Recently, after he refused dinner, I made him yogurt dip and he luckily ate it all. I like that it adds the sunbutter in so there's more protein and calories (which is very important for my little peanut!)
Last month when I remade the sweet onion pot roast I froze half. I pulled it out of the freezer recently and I have to say, I never get sick of this! I made it with mashed potatoes this time and it was delicious. I love the sauce so anything that sucks up the sauce is a favorite for me.
This recipe is almost a joke at how simple it is, but it's so good. I remade double cheese pasta primavera. I added some chicken to it and just used a bag of steamed veggies to mix instead of fresh ones and it made the recipe even easier! The thing is I love Velveeta, so any excuse to eat it is a good one.
Chicken parmesan pasta continues to be a favorite around here. I add it to the remake so often that I'm not even sure it's worth mentioning, but I can't emphasize how easy this is on nights you just don't feel like cooking.
Honey Thai chicken stir fry is a great option for stir fry meals. Can I be honest here for a moment though? The reason I make so many stir fries is because I love my little mini baked egg rolls that I buy and sometimes I just crave them. So the frozen egg rolls are my main motivation to make some type of stir fry... I guess it should be the other way around, with the meal being the main attraction, but I looooove me some egg rolls!
I love Costco... way more than I should. Last time I went I ended up buying a huge jar of bruschetta. Why? I have no idea. But I did. So I've been trying to use it up before it goes bad. One meal was this bruschetta pizza which I added chicken to. Even Landon loved it... I guess he didn't notice the tomatoes and green sauce under the cheese because if he did he'd never have touched it!
See you in April with the next recap!
