I have had several people talk to me about ways that their family connect and I want to take the time to say that my suggestions are just that, suggestions. Please do not feel judged by me or unable to reach the bar etc. The important thing is that you bring dinner back or breakfast into your lives and by this I mean take time around your meals to set aside the business of life and re-connect, get to know each other and share life. However you do this I am rooting for you! Relationships are an important part of life and making safe places is invaluable. I’d love to hear from some of you about how you create such a place in your home. Share through the comments section, on facebook or twitter and use #bringingbackdinner
This week we had several dishes with leftovers that were less exciting, but I think you will enjoy the two meals below.
Asparagus-Mushroom Mini Lasagnas – Eating well Magazine
I’ve made this dish before, but had a friend who was interested in it, so here you go!
Time: 1 Hour 25 Minutes
Ease: Moderate to Simple
Review: this is really a great dish. It is a nice dish for your family and would make a great dish for company. You could try using different ingredients and use the same method to have a little fun with this!
Time: About 30 Minutes
Review: Pampered Chef recipes are simple, tasty and always look like you worked harder than you did. They are not the healthiest, but good. My family like this, over all. My husband loved it and the kids thought it needed a little less cream cheese. I have to agree. I think the amount of cream cheese depends on what you like, so just adjust for your family. When I make this again I will probably put half the amount of cream cheese on half of the pizza and the normal amount on the rest. Keep everybody happy!
This week we also turned leftover steak into fajitas. I know, it sounds like a crime. Otherwise there was not enough to share. I also freeze any leftover spaghetti sauce and pulled some out for dinner this week. Try making your leftovers into something else, but shhhhh don’t tell them, they will never know it.
Have a great week and I’ll see you in 2 weeks when I return from vacation.
