meals day 5

Well, today was funny. Had so much to do. I made dinner, got the house clean, we did one (yes, just one) class today. And guess what. We didn't have time to eat the dinner I so painstakingly prepared because we had to get out the door so that mom could go to her homeschooling thingy. So I made it, but we have not eaten it yet:

Potatoes, Carrots, and Turnips Au Gratin (a Molly Katzen recipe, modified)

2 large carrots
3 med-large potatoes
3 turnips

Slice these up in thin slices. add

1 diced onion or 1 cup diced scallions (onions are cheaper, but scallions are more delicious, we usually do onion)

Mix in one jar of garlic alfredo sauce (can be found with other pasta sauces)

Sprinkle bread crumbs and parm. cheese over the top

cover tightly with tinfoil

bake at 350 for one hour.

Last time we had it, I liked it. But I would only give it two and a half stars. This is a recipe Skywalker likes more than I do (translated-- less non-vegetarian friendly. His taste buds are more accepting of vegetables than mine are.)

The kids seemed Ok with parts of it. For them, it's probably a one and a half out of four stars.

If you love veggies, you'll like this. If you don't, you might not as much.
