What's Cooking

I'm setting this to post Tuesday. Hopefully it will post okay, and by time it posts, we will be on our way to Orlando. Kayla's teacher asked me why I was bothering to send the twins to school Tuesday when they'd just be babysitting them half a day and sending them home. Nothing is planned. So we will pick up the report cards around 7:30 a.m. (central) Tuesday and be leaving hopefully by 8:30.

Here's what the kids cooked in May.
Jasmine made alfredo and linguine, which is her favorite meal.

Tyler made Pita pockets.

Tyler's Cheesy Pita Pockets
1 tbs veg oil
1 large onion sliced
1-2 pkg frozen beef sandwich steaks
1 can cheddar cheese soup
8 pita pockets

Heat oil in skillet. Heat onions until tender. Drain and set aside. Break steaks into small pieces and cook until browned. Pour off fat. Add cheese and onions and heat through. Spoon into pita pockets.

Jessica made Sausage tortilla lasagna

1 ½ lb sausage                                      ½ tsp garlic
2 c small curd cottage cheese              3 c spaghetti sauce
2 T all purpose flour                             10 lg tortillas
1 tsp oregano                                       1 ½ c shredded mozzerella cheese
1 tsp basil


Brown sausage in a skillet. Drain grease. Mix cottage cheese and flour in a large bowl. Add the sausage, seasonings and 1 ½ c of the spaghetti sauce. Mix. Spoon ½ c of the mixture on to each tortilla. Roll like a jelly roll. Place seam side down in a large baking pan sprayed with cooking spray. Pour remaining sauce over the top. Bake covered at 375F for 30 to 35 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese. Put back in oven until the cheese melts. Serves 6.

Adam made a chicken bake. I need to find what recipe he used. And we had strawberry shortcake that night but he ate his too fast for me to get a picture.

Kayla made hot turkey sandwiches using Banquet turkey dinner and boxed mashed potatoes.
And she made cookies.

Kaleb made "Mexican" pancakes.

16 four-inch sausage links
1 ½ cup salsa
1 ½ cup Bisquick mix
½ cup yellow cornmeal
1 ¼ cup milk
1 tsp chili powder
8 oz can whole kernel corn drained

Heat up sausages and keep warm.

Heat up salsa and keep warm.

Heat griddle or skillet. Spray or grease. Mix all ingredients except salsa and sausages. Stir until blended. Pour batter by 1/4c onto hot griddle.

Hope to post from Orlando, but if not, "see you" when we get back. Pray for a drama free fun time, good health (Jasmine has been running a  high temp off and on) and no mechanical/tire problems.
