I used Parmesan cheese on top and I think next time I will use cheddar. Might add a little cheddar in the filling too.
Tonight I made Tuna Casserole. I have to confess, my tuna casserole is usually a box of Kraft Mac N Cheese, a can of tuna drained and a can of mushrooms drained. Mix up the Mac N Cheese according to directions and add the tuna and mushrooms. This recipe was worth the extra effort.
I found the original recipe here. That recipe only called for 8 ounces of noodles - half a bag - but I went ahead and cooked the whole bag thinking I would save half to use for buttered noodles some day this week. But when I got the sauce mixed up it just looked like way too much for half the noodles so wound up using them all.
Another dish was one I made up as I went along, Mushroom Skillet Dinner. It is similar to a beef stroganoff and is like making hamburger helper - but from scratch. Tom really liked it - he ate it for supper the next 2 nights. I love making large casseroles so we have leftovers for a few nights - just add a salad or some veggies and maybe some fresh fruit. He likes it too since there is less clean-up in the kitchen.
Tomorrow night we are going to a local barbecue place. They are having a fundraiser and it's a good excuse not to cook - right?
I have also been busy crafting - finished up this guy -
he will be going to Love Quilts Brazil by way of Quilts for Older Children and Adults.
And I have doing some knitting - a new project is a temperature afghan. I knit a row for each day of the year and the color I use is based on the high temperature for that day. I got the idea here. I used some different colors and assigned them for every 10 degree interval from 'below 0' to '101 and above'. Probably won't need the below 0 since we rarely have a high in that range but just in case, I planned for it.
The brighter blue is for 0-10 degrees and the golden row is for 51-60 degrees. You can see we had a day of 51-60 and then 2 days later we had 0-10 - only in the Midwest :-) And the bright orange row is 61-70 degrees. Quite a variety already. Some have a row done that marks the end of each month. I am debating about using the navy for that so between Jan 31 and Feb 1, I would do a navy row. I think that might give it more meaning for him.
