Monday: Chinese Take Out
My flight from DC got in late, and the last thing I was going to do was cook. And true story, I have a weakness for anything and everything Asian.
Tuesday: Warm Asparagus, Tomato, and Steak Salad with Corn Pie
Yum!!!! This was the home run this week. I saw the asparagus, tomato, and steak salad on Elefantitas Alegres and knew that I had to recreate it asap. It was so easy and so delicious. My only modifications- I used goat cheese instead of gorgonzola and left out the walnuts. I will make this again, like next week.
The corn pie is my grandmother's old, old recipe. Typically, I just bake it in a pyrex dish (without the pie crust), but I have one in my freezer than I needed to use, so I thought what the heck. The corn pie is:
1 can of creamed corn
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels or one ear fresh corn (optional)
Combine all ingredients. Bake 350' 30-40 minutes until golden brown and set.
Though I know corn doesn't offer much nutritional value, I love it. We had this recipe all the time growing up, and it is a great comfort for me.
Wednesday: Million Dollar Spaghetti
This layered spaghetti casserole is great twist to a classic spaghetti dinner. I find myself making it often, as we'll freeze half and eat half. The original recipe calls for ground beef, but I often use ground turkey or ground chicken to lighten it up. Its a great crowd pleaser. I use the recipe from my mom's cookbook, but this one is very similar.
I spent the evening packing for my college rommate's wedding this weekend and trying to organize our messy house, so LO's it was. Million dollar spaghetti reheats like a champ :)
