Only picture I got! Sorry!

Hello all! I know it’s been over a year since I posted. I wrapped up my first year of teaching and that kept me pretty busy. But wanted to give a quick update to get back on track and confirm that I am alive.

So, if you are looking for a one-pot, quick, healthy, and CHEAP dinner (isn’t that the dinner combination we all strive to achieve?), then this is the dinner idea for you. I didn’t take many pictures because I thought to do this blog AFTER the cooking and cleanup!

Welcome back readers!

Today, I wanted to share with you something that is not based on chicken. It’s true we do eat a LOT of chicken in our house. But today, I present to you something vegetarian friendly and, if you skipped topping it with cheese, would also be vegan friendly. It’s a simple dish and took me probably 20 minutes to whip up. My husband LOVED this and even asked if there was more!

Welcome back readers! Thanks for stopping by.

I know it has been a while since my last post. Student teaching has been keeping me quite busy! But student teaching has ended, so I hope to be back in the kitchen and whipping up all kinds of great creations to share on a regular basis.

In the meantime, here’s something I created the other night. This was part I was craving Applebee’s, part I felt like trying something new, part I had some stuff to get rid of, and part I wanted really great presentation. Unfortunately, in my tired creative stupor, I did not write anything down (that’s pretty on par, eh?). But I don’t want that to stop me from sharing what I thought was one of the best things I have made in a long time.

This meal all started because yesterday, I had a great day. I was being observed in the classroom for the first time by my supervising professor and the lesson went well. My supervisor seemed to really enjoy my teaching. My students were engaging in great thinking and one student even said I looked very nice. Then I went to campus and got to talk to my favorite professor (who I have not had in the past year). We chatted for nearly 45 minutes and she told me she was proud of me (WOW!). She also said she liked seeing my recipes on my facebook. Well, naturally, I went home after that comment and whipped up something new to share with everyone. So, Dr. Calabria, this one is for you.

First time

Welcome back readers! I think we have been on vacation long enough. After coming back from the OBX, I had to roll up my sleeves and get cooking. We had spent all of our money on a wonderful week! Luckily, I love to cook (and we lack many decent places to eat here), so this was not a problem for me.
