Welcome to this weeks………

 

Making a Home – Homemaking Link Up!

 

This weeks featured post is…… Spanokopita aka Greek Spinach Pie from Marilyn’s Treats.

 

Four sheets of Phyllo dough, spinach, cheeses and some herbs and cloves create one of the most flavorful and light Greek dishes you can make at home.

 

 

Don’t be intimated by the name. Said the person that has never made Spanokopita because it sounds intimating. lol Marilyn’s recipe makes it look pretty easy! I had Spanokopita at an event at my daughter’s college. So good! Now I’m excited to try it myself!

I deviated from last weeks menu just a little bit. I ended up making several of my daughters favorite meals. She left yesterday to move out of state for grad school. She’s been home since March, when her college moved to online because of the virus. That’s the longest she’s been home since her sophomore year of college. Man, I’m going to miss her!

One of the dishes she requested was cheeseburger macaroni. Made with homemade mac and cheese. Some like to put ketchup on it. I’m in the ketchup club. lol

It’s always a good morning when you get a double yoke egg!

Since we had such a busy schedule, with getting her packed, getting her car in the shop to be checked out, and trying to watch as many episodes of Bones together as we could, I needed easy meals.

The day her car was in the shop and I had to drive to town multiple times, I made the Chicken Alfredo that she requested.

I started the night before by grilling the chicken when make burgers that night for supper.  I squeezed making pasta and alfredo sauce in between trips to town. I then put the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker. Topped it with the hot spaghetti and hot Alfredo sauce. And turned it on warm so it’d be ready for dinner.

Doesn’t look particularly appetizing sitting in the slow cooker, does it? When I served it, it was perfect, though!

I dished out the spaghetti and sauce first, then I was down to the chicken and placed it on top.

While I didn’t cook the whole thing in the slow cooker, I used the slow cooker to help me get dinner on the table in a timely manner.

And that’s what having kitchen helpers, like the slow cooker, is all about!

 

What’s your favorite kitchen helper?

Last week, our youngest had his 20th birthday.  Hard to believe, but true!

I ended up going out of town that day. I hurried and made the cake before I left, and made the frosting when I returned at about 8 pm. I got the frosting made, and the cake frosted by 8:30 when he got off work.

Then I went to get the candles. And discovered that I had only 2 PINK candles in the house. lol

Oh well, he didn’t seem too upset about the candles. lol

I worked on getting the freezer stocked with snacks. The family love snacks. And I don’t like the expense of store bought snacks. Not to mention all the garbage in most of them. While the snacks I made this week have sugar, they don’t have a lot of the other bad stuff.  So while not perfect, they are better and cheaper than store bought versions.

I made brownies using my Brownies for a Crowd recipe. I gave half away, and individually wrapped the rest, then froze in a bag.

I also made chocolate chip cookie bars. I can’t believe I haven’t shared my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe yet! I’ll have to do that soon!

I cut the bars into squares, wrapped individually, and froze in a bag.

 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars for the Freezer

 

Individually wrapped, they defrost quickly when you remove them from the freezer. You can take them out one at a time, as needed, or how ever many you need. So convenient. And they taste like they were just made. I think the brownies come out fudgier then they went in.

If you like your cookies or brownies warm, simply remove the plastic wrap, and heat in the microwave for a few seconds. It takes very little time to warm, so don’t over cook them!
