scalloped tomatoes

May 23rd, 2010 at 12:32 pm

Last night I fixed a big pan of Stouffer's individual meatloaves, 6 of them. I ate one and refroze 3 and kept 2 for other meals this week. For sides I fixed scalloped tomatoes and mashed butternut squash. The mashed butternut squash is fixed the same way you fix mashed potatoes - boil in salted water, drain, mash with butter, milk, salt and pepper. They were pretty good - not as good as mashed potatoes, but good, and it was a vegetable :P

I love the scalloped tomatoes. This is a takeoff on one of Ina Garten's recipes only I changed it to just make 2 servings and use stuff from my pantry and freezer.

I planted basil, parsley, radishes and green onions this weekend. It's finally time here - I hope. Now if I can just get thru the hail season.

I finished reading the library book The Endless Forest by Sara Donati. Historical - excellent. I love this series. I gave it to my niece a while back and she fell in love too and has been forcing all her friends to read it.

I also read my book Lyon's Pride by Anne McCaffrey. Sci/Fi - ok
