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).

Zucchini Tots

Last summer, I had a lot of zucchini in my garden.  Like, A LOT!  I made zucchini bread, zucchini noodles, grilled zucchini, etc.  I still had more and absolutely hated the thought of it going to waste.  So I shredded what was left, and put it in ziploc baggies in the freezer.  I wasn’t sure what I would do with it, but at least I didn’t have to throw it out!  Fast forward to my little babe, who loves to eat anything she can feed herself.  So when my sister suggested zucchini tots I was sold!  I got to use up all of the frozen shredded zucchini and make a healthy lunch for my little girl.

Minestrone Soup

I don’t like Minestrone soup.  Or at least I used to think I didn’t like it.  Reality is I had only ever had it out of a can.  First time I tried it homemade, I was hooked.  It was full of veggies and flavor and didn’t even compare to the canned version.  I’ve come to this conclusion- any kind of homemade soup is good!  Stop buying cans – start making soup!  Now – just do it ok?
