one week, Joseph, and a recipe
My head is definitely spinning. Welcome to the 1 week anniversary of my blog creation. If you have been visiting, you've noticed that I've re-designed my blog 3 times now. It has become kind of an addiction. However, now that I've found http://www.shabbyblogs.com/ ,I don't think I will be changing it anytime soon.
We had a busy weekend, as you can see on my "picture of the day", my daughter, Katie, was in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (9 performances~whew!). And now, the track season starts tomorrow...no rest for the weary. It was also Pinewood Derby (a picture of Luke and his car will be on the site later this week).
I'm getting ready for my sister in-law's baby shower and will have lots of new crafty projects to show you as that draws closer.
Also, head over to the Paper Fashions website...if you take a survey, you can be entered to win a special treat (see this pic above?...lots of scrapping goodies). So, go visit Lisa at http://lisafalduto.blogspot.com/ and take her survey.
Now for the recipe...I used to work with a great gal, Janine, that gave me this recipe eons ago. I haven't made if for awhile, and the broccoli was calling my name in the grocery store this week. Enjoy!
Mostaciolli Broccoli Bake
1# box of mostaciolli, cooked
1/4 c margarine
1/4 C salt
2 C milk
1/2 C Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1/8 tsp nutmeg
2 C broccoli, cooked
1/2 to 1 C Swiss cheese, diced
*Optional~sometimes, I like to throw in some grilled chicken pieces (about 2 breasts worth)
Melt margarine. Stir in flour until blended. Add milk. Cook on medium until thick, stirring constantly. Stir in Parmesan and spices. Remove from heat. In large bowl, combine pasta, sauce, and broccoli. Place in a 9x13 dish. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
