Thank you so much for your suggestions on freezable, kid-friendly meals for my neighbor and her family! They need a helping hand so Iâ€™m going to try to make a dish each week for them.
I ended up making this wonderful Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower, suggested by Jessica. I doubled the recipe and made two large casseroles and one smaller one. Weâ€™ll keep one of the larger ones, and I sent the other two over to my neighbor.
I let you know it tastes tomorrow, but Iâ€™m thinking its going to be good â€“ ooey and gooey and cheesy perfection.
My afternoon was consumed by cooking and gardening. A pretty nice Sunday (especially a long weekend Sunday!) if you ask me.
I grabbed a strawberry/banana protein smoothie from a local place called Carolina Smoothie.
I also tried out Angelaâ€™s 5 Ingredient No Bake Vegan Date Squares. If you love dates, you will love these squares. They were SO easy to make and tasted delicious straight from the freezer. Iâ€™ll be picking at these all night long, I suspect.
Dinner was delicious, too (yes, I ate dessert first). Spinach, quinoa, white kidney beans, tomatoes, and got cheese with a drizzle of creamy balsamic. So good. A perfect summer dinner, if you ask me!
The Husband and I broke our TV Diet (1 hour a day) to watch The Kingâ€™s Speech while we ate dinner. It was a FANTASTIC movie. Itâ€™s about George VI of England, who reigned during WWII, and his struggles with stammering. We especially love to watch British-themed movies in this household because the Husband is English.
And, in other news, I just spent 10 minutes watching Mishka the talking dog videos on YouTube. Save me from myself.
