not really sure what to call it…

Is it mac and cheese???

Is it chicken noodle casserole???

Is it a bird, a plane a delicious meal????

yes it is one hell of a delicious meal 🙂

chicken noodle mac and cheese to the rescue!!!

As we all know the boy will eat anything that involve loads of cheese and noodles… his one comment about this meal was… “it would have been great without the chicken or peas”… seriously steve!? you cannot survive on cheese and noodles…

and then after he had 2 bowls of the awesomeness that was the mac and cheese he proceeded to eat three cups of yogurt… the boy has a problem…

I had no idea what to eat the other night… I had eatten cake for lunch (happy birthday again maya) and was starving by 6pm when the boy rolled in… of course no help from him on what to make so I just started pulling things out of the cabinets and fridge and that is what I added up with…

gruyere, gouda and cheedahhhh

It was simple and easy and massively comforting…

And I ate the leftovers for lunch and dinner yesterday lol…

One day I’ll make something other than a casserole… but as long as they are as delish as this it just ain’t gonna happen…

There is no real recipe for this…

pick you pasta, pick you cheeses… make a roux and mix in your cheese… then add shredded chicken breast (I cheated and got mine out of a can, told ya, grab and go) and anything else you want to mix in – for me it was peas…

mix the sauce with the noodles and pop into a casserole dish… on top I put a mixture of melted butter and my homemade breadcrumbs…

bake at 350 for 30 min and voila all done…

Q of the Day: Do you ever get in a rut making the same types of meal? Do you see it as a good or a bad thing?

blue cheese tilapia

I hate to do this but I have to give my ex credit for this super quick and simple dish…

Well it turns out this is his sister’s meal which he passed on to me and now I enjoy it when I’m hankering for some fish this is what I throw together…

The ingredients….

  • tilapia fillets
  • blue cheese
  • any extra cheese you choose

star of the show

fishy fishy

These were some fillets I’ve had stashed in my freezer for who knows how long but they weren’t freezer burnt and defrosted fine…

Spray your dish down with non-stick cooking spray, pop in the fish and then coat with the dressing…

make sure to cover the fillets well, the dressing with cook down a bit in the oven…

Put into a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes…

and enjoy a glass of this…

I don’t own a wine glass so I old school it and just put it in a regular glass…

left half has gorgonzola cheese on it.

And then eat as is or do like I do and pop it on some buns for a nommy fish sandwich!

lighting sucks, hate my little camera sometimes

the blue cheese dressing keeps the fish so moist and it just flavors everything in a way that can’t be beat…

i’m telling you, you’ll love it…

i don’t even like blue cheese and this is one of my fav fall back dishes when I’m feeling lazy….
