Today is my 2nd recipe entry for the RedPack Tomato contest I wrote about yesterday. This recipe is one of my dad’s favorite meals, and since we are trying to eat healthy, I decided to give it a healthy spin. Here’s the original, followed by my heart healthy adaptation. This might have to be something I pull together for a night at Grandma’s soon!
Sunday had me on an OCD kick. The fridge needed a spring cleaning, and wouldn’t you know, when things are organized, they sometimes take up more space than they did before. So, we found ourselves in need of making some yummy food to make space. (By the way, if you’ve ever seen our fridge, I am sure you are shaking your head wondering how in the world we could ever run out of space, but it’s very easy.)
It is no surprise that I am a huge fan of all things spicy (have you read about my experience with the Ghost Pepper Marshmallow?). So, I am pretty excited to share with you a Mexican dish I made without a recipe the other night–Enchiladas. I will try to tell you step by step what went into making it, but I really just started grabbing things and throwing them together. I really feel that’s the best way to cook (shh….don’t tell my nutrionist!).
In the midst of a snowstorm, I had my husband start dinner. Little did I know it would take 3 hours for me to get halfway home and give in to the drive. Lucky him, he got to make and enjoy this quick and easy casserole from Kraft’s new Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese. Looks yummy, but you’ll have to take his word on that.
A few weeks ago, the always delightful fellow mama blogger, The Mrs. of Trying Our Best, tweeted about making a Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese casserole. You had me at Buffalo, mrs.! 🙂 I asked her if she would share the recipe, and she led me to the Food Network’s version of the recipe. She doctored it up to be lighter and healthier, I doctored it up to be more “me”. 🙂 (I will share her link when she has it ready.) I am sharing tonight because this dish is my contribution to an AFC Championship party (GO STEELERS!) tomorrow night, and if I get people asking how I made it, I can direct them here.
