Discuss a throwback meal! For Monday evening’s dinner, I truly revisited a brilliant outdated weblog submit (hellooo, 2011) as a result of one thing at the back of my thoughts remembered loving a squash casserole I made greater than a decade in the past. My mind can’t bear in mind principally something after I birthed kids however my pre-2015 food-related reminiscence is outwardly thriving. I shortly Googled “squash casserole pbfingers” and I immediately discovered the submit and made the recipe once more, although this time I swapped out yellow squash for zucchini. It was simply as scrumptious as I remembered and Ryan and I liked this one!

Ryan had a piece dinner on Tuesday evening and I stored issues easy for myself and integrated some leftovers right into a salad. I used leftover roasted cabbage and zucchini as the bottom of my salad and topped it with edamame, corn, leftover salmon and an orange-ginger dressing. It wasn’t something wonderful but it surely was tasty and a pleasant solution to get some greens into my stomach on the finish of the day.

It wasn’t the prettiest meal but it surely was so tacky and so scrumptious!

We arrived in Florida simply earlier than time for supper on Friday which meant we made it in time to dig right into a meal with my mother and father earlier than bedtime. My mother ready Brunswick stew, considered one of my favorites, and I had two bowls of the stew together with some bread and butter.
