Monday nights are the best! Monday means cookin' for clients. Monday also means those I love gather round my stove and engage in fun banter and wit whist I cook.
Last nights guests were Austin and Tiff with Brian joining a bit later.
We drank whisky. We did crossword puzzles. Mostly THEY did crossword puzzles. I only got two answers: moonshine and fry. God, I'm just a Tennessee hillbilly at heart ain't I? Then we watched a bit of the DNC and finished up the night drunkenly watching our favorite YouTube videos while I waited for the squash to finish roasting.
This week was a small order because B&S are going out of town.
Fruit Salad. Which is actually quite tedious with all the mangoes and pineapple to cut up.
Meat Loaf and Mashed Potatoes. Comfort food. Mmm.
Curried Quinoa Stuffed Butternut Squash. Dani food, fo sho.
Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Shells. So easy.
All are a breeze. But the last is, I think, the easiest and most tasty. Let's whack this one out shall we?
1. Boil large pasta shells and drain.
2. Combine in a bowl:
1 Small tub of Ricotta Cheese
1 Cup Parmesan
1 Cup Mozzarella
1 Small box of Frozen Spinach(thaw and squeeze out the water before you add)
1 Can of Artichokes roughly chopped
3.In a large baking dish pour a layer of pasta sauce. Jarred is totally fine. No judgment, yo.
4.Using a tablespoon fill each shell with the cheesy goodness.
5.Top with more sauce and sprinkle a bit more cheese.
6.Stick in a 350 oven for about 20 minutes.
Done and done.
Look a cat in a bag!
