Busy in the Kitchen

This weekend has been a busy cooking weekend, which I like.
Last night was Crissy's, and tomorrow is a bake sale and we are going to friends for lunch.
These are some of the various items I have made for the occasions.
Lana has been helping me today and is quite the little chef. She peeled zuchinni and didn't knick herself at all....unlike her mother who has lost part of a nail...and uh, thankfully not in the zuchinni.

Taco Filled Jumbo Shells -I made these last night. I don't make mine exactly like they do, I don't let the meat set, I just do it

Zuchinni Chocolate Chip Bread

Milky Way Poke Cake - I had never made this before and it was GOOOOOD! I'm making more today for the bake sale

Pineapple Casserole - This has always been one of my faves. You can serve it hot out of the oven, or fridge for later

2 cans PA tidbits or chunks -drained and reserve juice
3TBLS PA juice
3 TBLS flour
1/2 cup Sugar
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 pkg butter cookies- Crushed
1 stick butter-melted

Combine first 5 ingredients in a greased small casserole dish
Combine cookies and butter
Place on top
Bake @ 350 for 20 minutes

1 2 3 dip

8oz cream cheese
1 can corn-drained
1 can rotel -drained

Put cream cheese in a microwavable bowl
pour corn and rotel on top
Microwave for 3 mintues
Serve with Fritos scoops
Amazingly easy and soooo good!

Missy's Secret Recipe Chocolate Chip cookies
2 1/4 cup Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

You don't really think I'm going to give you my secret recipe do you????

And tonight for dinner, Homemade Pizza that Logan is going to help with.

My kitchen is over 100 degrees right now, but all of the fresh cooking and baking is worth it.

Is it ever really worth it to have a kitchen over 100? We went to Katie's Kitchen again tonight before coming home after a VERY long tiring day of moving. What a load of boxes I've got!

O, the food you made last night was heaven! Thank you thank you thank you for loving to cook and letting this preggo partake in the goodies!

I know your secret recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Be nice to me.

I'm recalling a fake nail in a salad. And a lawsuit. And a very unhappy manager.

I love the 123 dip people go crazy for this one I love when you tell them to how to make it and they are amazed.

I bought the Milky Way Poke cake and it was Awesome!!!! I think I gained 5 lbs yesterday just eating it!!! Terry loved it and I'm hoping that there is still some when I get home from work today (he gets home at 3:00, I get home around 6:00)
