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".

Oh, yummy! I think I'll have to try this.

You wanted to know how I watermark my photos. I use Photoshop Elements and the standard frames there that you can apply. I then use the text tool to apply my initials and one of the standard little pictures, in my case the leaf. Then I turn it all in to one layer and that's it. Takes only seconds.

I hate it when that happens. But the upside of dinner ready for the next day is pretty terrific!

Looks delicious - my mouth is watering - and I'm a vegetarian!

This really made me smile! It looks delicious and I'm sure it tastes just as fabulous!

Justine, Erika, Vicki, Bonnie & Rosie, It could be made vegetarian quite easily - and it was good. And dinner was so orderly and easy (just whipped up a salad) as it was home cooked and ready on time. This might be the start of making a few dishes ahead of time!
