Zucchini Casserole

Doesn’t that just make you hungry?

This is a recipe from my Grandma on my father’s side of the family. She graciously sent me home with enough veggies to feed my entire apartment complex for a week so I had to do something with them. Sure enough, there were some zucchini in there, and so I decided to try this recipe she gave me. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself!

Zucchini Casserole

Ingredients

  • 4 zucchini, peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 box chicken flavored stuffing
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1 stick butter

Directions

Heat oven to 350 F. Saute zucchini, onions, and garlic in olive oil until zucchini is soft. Season with pepper and seasoning salt. Melt butter and combine with stuffing. Stir in soup and sour cream. Add zucchini to this mixture and stir well. Pour into a greased casserole dish (13 x 9) and bake for 20 min. Serve and enjoy!

 

I added some shredded cheddar cheese when serving, and it made it that much better. Cheese just goes with everything doesn’t it?

Nice ‘n Easy

So I have a confession to make. I don’t always eat healthy. Tonight was one of those nights. I have a P-chem exam to study for and I worked till 6:30. Quick and easy dinner was on the menu. My go-to quick food is none other than macaroni and cheese (my co-workers can attest to this, I ate it almost every day for lunch this summer). I figured I should add some variety to that so I decided to go with some scrambled eggs. They add some protein and they’re also quick and easy.

Apparently I’m feeling yellow tonight. I even bought some pineapple for Allison and I to enjoy. Is this healthy? No. Tasty? Oh yes.

Quick ‘n Easy Breakfast Sandwich (for dinner)

Tonight is one of those nights when I get home from class around 9:30 pm, haven’t eaten a bite since 11:00 am, and am famished. I have no patience for an oven or even a boiling pot of water. This is where my good friend, the grilled cheese, steps it.

The one thing I love about grilled cheese is that you can modify it in so many ways. Tonight I needed a little more substance with my sandwich, so I decided to go with my boyfriend’s popular breakfast sandwich. This baby consists of a cheese omelet, ham or bacon, and 2 slices of American cheese.

The Best Breakfast Sandwich (Ever)

2 eggs

~1 T milk

Seasoned salt

Pepper

Shredded cheese

American cheese

Ham

Some nice thick bread (Italian or French works really well)

Butter

An omelet pan will make your life so much easier. Crack your egg into a small bowl, add your milk and whisk in. Add seasoned salt and pepper to your heart’s desire. Cook thoroughly and add some cheese before folding in half. Meanwhile, butter your bread (don’t be shy) and place 1 slice of cheese and some ham on one of the pieces. Place your omelet on top of the ham, top with the other piece of cheese and slice of bread. Brown on both sides (med-low heat works best).

Knife and fork sandwich?

This is always best enjoyed with a glass of juice (tonight I’m having orange-mango). Lesson learned today: don’t cook while you’re hungry, otherwise things may get a little “out of hand.”
