Four Cheese Lasagna

This recipe has a few ingredients that you don’t typically see in in lasagna, but its seriously good.  There are probably, like, a million lasagna recipes out there.  They all claim to be the best.  And if you were a tall guy with curly hair prancing around NYC in tights, you might say that the first lasagna recipe you try is officially the best and wholeheartedly congratulate them (Elf anyone??).  I’m not going to claim this is the best.  Because some people might think it is the best, and some people might not.  But it’s really darn good.  And there’s a few ingredients that make it stand out just a bit from most of the traditional lasagna recipes you see out there in the world wide web.  Also there’s four types of cheese.  You just can’t go wrong here people.

Ground beef chili with beans

Chili…because it’s feeling like fall…most places anyway right?  I’m going to just pretend it feels like fall here in South Texas.  Because it’s November, and I want to be in sweatpants and chili mode all weekend.  Like literally all weekend.  Don’t try and get me to get dressed and leave the house or do basically anything else.  There’s no reason we can’t make that happen  (excuse the 80 degree temps outside).

Green Chile with Roasted Pork

It’s green chile time!

This past weekend it finally felt like fall.  Like, FINALLY.  There are times that I just love living in South Texas (like January when it’s 75 degrees out and everyone else is buried under some named snowstorm…Jonas anyone??).  But when September hits, and it’s still annoyingly hot, I’m all take me back to the northeast!  They are boasting perfect fall temps almost every day and I am still dripping in sweat if I try and take a walk in the afternoon.  So in October, when fall finally does make its appearance here, I fully embrace it.  This past weekend was it.  The temp had finally dropped overnight so when you wake up in the  morning it’s in the 60’s, and it warms up throughout the day.  Heaven, I tell you.  So, Saturday morning we put on pants and long sleeves and headed outside.  It was glorious.

BBQ chicken flatbread pizza is football watching food perfection, in a nutshell.  It’s football season!  I’m sooo excited…and I just can’t hide it…But really, I’m excited for the food 🙂  I truly believe most people fall into three categories when it comes to football:  1 – die hard gotta watch every Sunday if my team loses I’m in a bad mood the rest of the week kind of fans.  2 – Watching football is ok but only if I have some tasty football watching food to munch on.  And 3 – Football?  Sundays?  What are you talking about?  I’m busy shopping, watching netflix all day or having all day long brunches with my favorite gal pals.  I fall somewhere between a 1 and a 2 (closer to 2 for sure).  My hubby is a 1.  So, on Sundays we watch football.  I half watch while I clean, cook and prep for the week.  So, for the first weekend of football I was all about making some yummy munchies.  And what’s better to eat while watching football than wings and pizza?  Nothing, the answer is there is nothing better to eat while watching football!  So this weekend, we started football season out right with a bbq chicken flatbread pizza and some yummy wings.

The only meatloaf recipe you need

Here’s another recipe that I’ve tried time and time again.  I’ve played around with it a lot and now twice in a row, I’ve gotten the “This meatloaf is really good” response from my husband.  That kind of response?  That’s an A+!  Trust me.  If there was something he didn’t like about it, he would let me know in…only in the most loving I want you to be the best cook you can be way of course 🙂   I promise he will deny saying that my meatloaf was really good (twice in a row, mind you), but you’re all my proof that he said it.

So, first things first.  Here are (most) of the ingredients you’ll need (I get distracted and forget to get all of the ingredients in the picture – forgive me!).  You want to mince the onion and garlic, like I did in the picture.  DSC_0655
