Sunday I made Carbonara - it always reminds me of Rome.

Last night we had meatloaf and mac & cheese.

Tonight we'll have Jambalaya to celebrate Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday). I always start with Zatarain's, then add shrimp and sausage. YUM!

For Ash Wednesday we'll have Cheesy Tuna Hotdish. I cannot find a recipe like mine on the internet. It uses 2 cups of white rice, cooked; 2 cans of tuna, drained; 1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup; 1/4 lb of Velveeta, melted; 1 T dried onion flakes and a splash of milk for consistency... OMG! I love it!

Thursday, we'll have Cheeseburgers and tater tots.

Friday I'm going to make Cioppino with a good crusty bread.

Saturday we'll have Steak, Baked Potatoes and Asparagus.

Click on the underlined words for links to recipes.

Do you just mix all of this together and bake until heated through? Sounds like something my family would like as far a meatless meals go!

I used to bake it, but now just make it on the stovetop. I make the rice in the microwave rice cooker. While the rice is cooking, I melt the cheese in the pan with the soup, onion flakes, milk and tuna. Then I just mix in the cooked rice and viola... dinner.

If you wanted, you could throw it in the oven and top it with fried onions or potato chips for some crunch... yum!

Yay to the new thread!!!
I was sporadically active on the last one, but I will be very active on this one. Dh just got a new job that will have him staying near his work on weeknights. He will stay with my grandma who thankfully lives near his new work. She can't cook for herself, and dh will be at work all day, so my plan is to make meals on the weekends and send him up with enough for the two of them for weeknights. That should be interesting because she doesn't eat much or like much anymore. The whole family had been pitching in to make her meals, but since my husband will be with her 4nights a week, I should do most of it now. So I will be looking for suggestions. That doesn't start for a few more weeks though.

As for this week.. I will update when I make menus tonight. Dh and I were going to do a huge grocery shop today but he came down with the stomach flu.
So I am making..

Tuesday.. baked chicken thighs, potatoes and corn.
