As you read this blog, I will likely be at Kelly’s house or in Publix, freaking out, as we’ve moved the Great Publix Adventure to her house for this week since she’s read so many times the adventures we’ve had and the delicious food we’ve cooked.
On the menu: Beaux’s Harvest Bake alongside Pasta Salad!
What would’ve been only a few people has expanded to a wider circle, which is of course okay, but now I have a kind of performance anxiety welling up inside of me. Doesn’t that sound awful? Yeah, my immediate family can eat any old thing I cook, but for other people, I want to make the food taste good.
Every time I’ve tried to cook something for Kelly’s house, I’ve run into a failure. Nothing keeps well from my house to Kelly’s house and the 30 minute long drive down Highway 52 because some set of idiots, for some god-unknown reason, decided to reduce the speed limit from 55 mph to 45 mph, thereby taking me even longer to get to Dothan by 52 than it would have before.
Anyway, the Harvest Bake is simple:
- Morningstar Crumbles
- Peas and Carrots
- Potato Soup
- Bread Crumbs and Cheese for the topping
Cooking the crumbles a good way through, then put them in a baking dish. Cover with peas and carrots and potato soup mix. Then add the bread crumbs and cheese. Bake until golden and bubbly.
- Your choice of pasta. I plan to use Wacky Mac’s rainbow pasta.
- Spinach, chopped
- Parmesan OR Feta cheese
Boil the noodles. Drain. Drizzle them with EVOO, add a little mayonnaise, add cheese and chopped spinach. Salt and pepper to taste.
Carpe Diem! I already feel so busy!
