Dinner is late - or is it early? 64/365
Tonight I got started on dinner late, and it was something I have never attempted before. Stuffed shells with Martha (Nov. issue of "Living", pg. 92) holding my hand. Scanned the page and ran to the store for the ingredients. "Fancier" than usual stuff; prosciutto, headradicchio, ricotta to name a few. If I chop it all up small enough, the kids (and hubby) won't have a clue it isn't anything but cheese and "ground beef". I think all turned out quite well (gotta love my new food processor!) noodles cooked, everything mixed and simmering. That is until I read "Bake covered for 40 minutes, then 15 minutes uncovered". Hmm. That was a problem.
So at 8:00 pm everyone had take-out food. The bright side is, dinner will be on time tomorrow night! The photo below is also my selection for the "Sunday Creative Challenge". The word of the week is "indulge".
