Happy Columbus Day! We hope you had a great weekend! My sister and her family were up visiting so we had lots of fun spending time with family this weekend. We are all off today and are enjoying a relaxing day together. Here is a look at what was on our menu last week.
Saturday: We had our monthly supper club. This month’s theme was cheese grab bag. At our last dinner we all wrote down the names of two different cheeses. We each randomly picked a cheese from the bowl and had to make a dish featuring that particular cheese. The Weekend Chef picked halloumi and he made a Butternut Squash, Halloumi & Chili Omelette from Good Food. I first picked smoked gouda and traded it in for a new pick, which ended up being AGED Gouda. There were a lot of goudas in that bowl! I made Savory Bread Pudding with Aged Gouda & Cheddar Cheese from Adventures in Cooking. Both of these dishes were really good!
Monday: I made Broccoli Rabe Turkey Burgers from Skinnytaste. I added slices of mozzarella to our burgers and I served these with fries. These burgers were okay. They were lacking a little in flavor and weren’t my fave.
Tuesday: I made Pizza Casserole from The Grant Life. Honestly, I’m not sure if you can call this a recipe. It’s basically a baked ziti with pepperoni, using jarred marinara sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese. The kids really enjoyed this though and it was super easy to make.
Wednesday: I made BBQ Chicken, Apple, Bacon and Cheddar Quesadillas from Closet Cooking. The kids enjoyed these a lot. I served these with rice and sautéed zucchini.
Thursday: I made Apple Pie Pancake Rolls from Crazy for Crust. I served these with breakfast sausage and yogurt. The kids love anything breakfast for dinner and these were no exception.
Friday: My sister and her family are visiting and we ordered pizza.
