Yeah, still no BYBC recap for you yet. Yes, I know the whole world is sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for it! I’m working on it!!
How about an update on that meal plan?
Cheeseburger Casserole Pasta Bake Pasta
I made the Cheeseburger Casserole on Sunday but I have renamed it Cheeseburger Pasta. Mr. Won’t Run is “allergic” to casseroles, and a “pasta bake” is just a fancy casserole so we’re calling it plain ol’ pasta.
His stomach was feeling a little off on Sunday so he skipped dinner but I had some and actually really liked it. It wasn’t like “oh my gosh, best thing I’ve ever eaten”, I mean it was a casserole after all, but it was tasty and I’d make it again.
I took the leftovers to work with me, shared some with the two pregnant co-workers who each gave it four thumbs up, and I finished the last of it today. Funny thing though, the Mr. was scrounging through the fridge last night and asked where the pasta was!
Oops, guess I’ll have to make it again soon.
I’m not posting the recipe here because I didn’t change a single thing – but you can check it out on SkinnyTaste.com!
I kicked Koko “OUT OF THE KITCHEN!” and she got all pouty and forlorn.
I still have the Indian Butter Chicken and the Spaghetti Aglio e Olio on the plan for this week but Monday night the Mr.’s stomach still wasn’t right – I can’t remember what I ate for dinner, Tuesday night he had crab at a late lunch so he wasn’t hungry – I ate a leftover baked chimichanga (with ranch), and tonight he’s working late – I ate a leftover baked chimichanga (with ranch).
I did come up with an interesting dessert though! We had some leftover brown rice that I had been thinking about using as a hot cereal this morning but didn’t (because I slept as late as possible and then didn’t have time to fix it #livewithoutpretending), so I doctored some of it up tonight and wound up with this… brown rice with Artisana Coconut Butter and a few milk chocolate chips:
Okay fine, it was a little more than a few, more like 45, or a “heavy sprinkle”.
Microwaved it for 33 seconds because it’s quicker to hit 3-3 than moving you finger all the way down the keypad to hit 3-0 (am I right?), stirred it up, and you get something that resembles Cocoa Krispies but without the snap/crackle/pop:
Hmmm, you could probably serve this as a Halloween maggot dessert! You’re welcome.
It was actually pretty tasty and satisfied my chocolate craving and I will totally do this again even though the Mr. will think it’s crazy. He thinks I have an obsession with mashing/mixing things together in bowls.
I kind of do.
And then I put ranch on top.
But never when there’s chocolate involved. Or maggots.
Do you have any bowl obsessions or weird desserts combos?
