Usually the same thing..except the vegetables I make different ones a couple of days a week..or if I have a pizza or hotdogs and mac & cheese those last just a day or 2..then I cook something else..for the rest of the week..or if I get tired of what I had cooked for the week I mix it up with a pizza or tv dinner..

Everything is from a can or box now a days..everything used to be from scratch but not anymore..


Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful

ah so you do have variation :)
I was just wondering how you did it, because I made rice with chicken and stuff once and it was enough to feed a whole army lol. So I was eating that for 3 days in a row, but at day 3 I was like if I have to eat this one more day...I will scream lol

Here you are Suzanne

Jamie Oliver’s 30 Minute Cauliflower Macaroni Cheese

Ingredients
8 rashers of bacon or pancetta
1 large head of cauliflower
500g dried macaroni
Olive oil as required
250g mature Cheddar cheese
4 thick slices of bread
large sprig of fresh rosemary
2 large clove of garlic
250g crème fraîche
Salt & pepper
Parmesan cheese, to serve
Method
Fill the kettle with water and bring to the boil. Preheat the oven on to 220ºC/425ºF/Gas 7.
Lay the bacon/pancetta in the dish you will eventually be using for the pasta mixture and put on the top shelf of the oven to pre-cook.
Trim off any very coarse or spoiled outer leaves from the cauliflower and remove the tough end of the stalk. Quarter the head or break it up into large pieces. Place in a large saucepan, stalks downwards and add the pasta.
Pour over the boiling water to cover the ingredients, season, add a little olive oil and place on a high heat. Stir well until it reboils, and cook with the lid just askew.
Grate the cheddar cheese in the food processor and tip into a bowl.
Remove the bacon from the oven. Using a food processer, process well with the bread and rosemary leaves. Add a good drizzle of olive oil to bind the ingredients into a coarse breadcrumb consistency.
When the cauliflower and the pasta is just cooked (a knife inserted into the cauliflower stalk should slip in easily), reserving the cooking water, drain it all through a colander into a large bowl.
Tip the pasta mixture into the dish the bacon was cooked in.
Add about 400ml (just under a pint) of the reserved cooking water.
Stir in the crème fraîche and cheese, breaking the cauliflower up with a fork or potato masher until you have bite-sized pieces.
Season. The sauce should be loose and if necessary, add another splash of the reserved cooking water.
Spread the mixture out evenly in the dish and scatter over the breadcrumb topping.
Cook on the top shelf of the oven for around 8-10 minutes, or until the topping is golden and the mixture bubbling.
To serve grate over some Parmesan.

Csiconolfi22 - I like chicken and broccoli!

Thank you so much for that, Nikki! That sounds really yummy <3

Sam & Rhisa - when I was living alone with just Lilly in Ohau (Hawaii), I often ate the same things all week; however, I generally made two things one night after the other so that I could alternate...

...Marshall Tacos? I really could eat that every day and not get tired of it! LOL (I just can't do the slice and dice by myself anymore, heheheheh)

What type of recipes are in the Chrissy Teegan Cook Book, Sav_J?



Thank you, Crissi, for my beautiful signature <3

My husband's favorite thing is crock pot sloppy joes. I'm actually making a large portion of it for him and his friends tonight - easy peasy, don't have to think twice about it.

Crock Pot Sloppy Joes
2 pounds ground beef, pork, or turkey
1 chopped small onion
½ cup chopped green bell pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 8oz can tomato sauce
½ cup water
2 tbsp yellow mustard
½ cup ketchup
1⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
1⁄4 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper

Cook the meat in a pan until brown, toss every ingredient + meat into the crock pot. Simmer on low for 5 hours. Put on buns, done.

Arellamarie - same here for me (like Anita) except I would skip the green peppers...

This is an awesome way to do Sloppy Joe's!

I usually end up with a sauce packet, so this is way better! Thank you for posting this :D

Okra huh? I've only ever eaten it breaded and fried. I like it that way. Ohhh wait, I think maybe I"ve had it in chicken gumbo soup too maybe. But, I've never fixed it before tho. How do you fix it?

Seriously, people...

...if you're going to tease us with these delicious foods, you simply must include the recipes!

I like veggies and greens are veggies... and while I mostly do not eat pork, I bet I could substitute another protein (even soy) in the peach mango salsa and sweet potato recipe! <3

I agree Suzanne!
Bodaccia..... that sounds define! I don't mind that much to be fat. I was thin my whole life until I hit the late forties...... The good thing about being 55 is that I don't care THAT much anymore. giggle

Garlic & olive oil pasta!
My go-to dish when we don't feel like spending a lot of time cooking.

- 1lb. of thin spaghetti, cooked with a little sea salt in the water, then drained.
- 7-10 cloves of garlic diced finely, or sliced thin (depends on how garlicky you want it, I go for about 9)
- 1/4 - 1/3 cup of EVOO
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup of fresh chopped parsley


After cooking the pasta, I put it aside, but reserve two cups of the pasta water for making the sauce.
In a big skillet, I heat up the olive oil until it starts sizzling when I toss in a piece of garlic. Put all of the garlic in and saute it until it's a nice golden color. (At this point, I add a heaping tbsp. of crushed red pepper because I like a little spice, but it's totally optional). Slowly add in half of the pasta water and stir until it's boiling and has reduced a bit. Add the pasta and stir it gently to get all of the noodles coated in the mixture. If you feel it's a little dry for your taste, add a few tbsp. at a time of the leftover pasta water until it's to your liking.

Then we fold in the parsley and shave about 1 cup of parmesan or romano (I usually pick up a fresh parmesan/romano/asiago blend at Trader Joe's) into it, toss lightly & serve.

It's one of my favorite light meals.

I usually purchase my okra from the frozen food section. When I get home I place it in my pot and add my preferred seasoning once the okra thaws out. I then add a can of tomato sauce to cut down on the slime, and cook down until the slime is all gone!

Attempting to make cauliflower soup today in the slowcooker. Never made it so hopefully it turns out well.


4 slices bacon, diced
1 head cauliflower, roughly chopped
2 leeks (whites only), thoroughly washed and sliced
1 onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup half and half*
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; set aside.
Place cauliflower, leeks, onion, celery and garlic into a 6-qt slow cooker. Stir in chicken broth, thyme, bay leaf and 2 cups water; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Cover and cook on low heat for 3-4 hours, or until vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaf’; puree with an immersion blender.
Stir in cheese and half and half.
Serve immediately, garnished with additional cheese, bacon and chives, if desired.
