Cooking/Baking day recap Dec. 1, 2009

Beans cooking:

Here's what I planned to do yesterday on my cooking baking day:
~pumpkin chocolate chip muffins
~pumpkin puree for soup/muffins for freezer
~knox blox (fruit juice jigglers)
~oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (if time)
~french bread in bread machine (for dinner)
~Paste Fagioli (for dinner plus leftovers for lunches)
~meat mixture-
#Taco/Bean mixture for tacos, taco salad, beans & rice, etc.
#Turkey tetrazinni

And well- our phone/internet went out for the day (just came back on!) and I got all that done plus an additional meal(baked spagetti). Here is a photo of all the goodies minus most of the Pasta Fagioli which we ate for dinner last night with salad, homemade french bread and cookies. Yum!

My only major hurdles were lack of recipes (I rely on the internet way too much for recipes!) and cranky kiddos. Potty training goes great most days-but this was not one of them;)

Did you participate and if so, how'd t go?

You did wonderful! I really want to try this soon!

Wow! Good for you! Looks like you overcame the obstacles too! :) I can see myself participating sometime soon in this...I hope. I always have grand ideas but they don't always work out that way. With the back and forth to school and lots of appointments 40 minutes from home I've been doing a little bit here and there when I can, mainly making up cooked sweet potatoes and freezer mashed potatoes to use up what I have.

What are your favorite tetrazzini recipes? I used to get a yummy turkey one at a place where I worked and have not tried to duplicate it. Tips? Also, I love saying Pasta Fagiole, so it is high time I tried to cook it, Andrew and I made salmon-cream cheese-refried bean burritos on the fly yesterday and they turned out surprisingly well. Using up stuff in pantry and frig of course! Hope to see you in the next couple weeks, love to all.
