Oat, Mushroom, and Swiss Chard Kugel
(Try it, you'll like it!)

Preparation Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 6

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for oiling the pan
3 shallots, peeled and coarsely chopped
5 Swiss chard leaves (red or rainbow work well)
8 ounces cremini (baby bella) mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned)
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or more to taste, separated
5 large eggs, slightly beaten
Salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Oil an 8-inch square baking pan. Set aside.

2. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large sauté pan. Add in chopped shallots and cook for about 5 minutes, until soft, but not brown. In the meanwhile, stem Swiss chard, chop stems coarsely and add them to the pan with the shallots. Season with salt and pepper. Add in mushrooms and cook for 5 more minutes. Chop Swiss chard leaves coarsely and add them into the pan. Season again. Cook just until the greens wilt and remove from heat.

3. Place boiling water in a small sauce pan. Add in oats and a pinch of salt. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

4. Add rosemary to vegetable mixture and pour in cooked oatmeal as well. Mix gently with a spatula.

5. Add eggs and 2 tablespoons cheese into the vegetable-oat mixture and mix until evenly distributed. Pour into prepared baking pan and sprinkle top with remaining cheese.

6. Bake for about 15 minutes, until set. Serve warm.

Pronto Salad: A family favourite

I head lettuce- washed and broken into bite sized pieces
1 sweet onion- diced
2 tomatoes- diced
Small block old cheddar shredded
large bag cheesy tostitos crushed
1 pound lean ground beef browned
1 can kidney beans
1 bottle 1000 islands salad dressing

After browning beef drain and pat to remove grease. Return to pan and add kidney beans and heat again. Add hot beef and beans to other ingredients. Serve pronto, as the warm mixture wilts the lettuce. Good with crusty bread or rolls.

Wow! I am so thrilled.

Debbie those look amazing, I can't wait to make the oatmeal chard.

Pronto salad looks like it would be a favourite of the DH too. I should make that next Saturday for him and his friends for their game night.

I had hand surgery, and a friend brought over cranberry chicken for my family.

chicken pieces with bones
a bottle of french dressing
a package of lipton onion soup mix
a can of whole berry cranberry sauce

bake for an hour at 350 f.

This seriously tastes like a big fat time-wasting kind of meal, and I saved the rest of the sauce in the freezer, have thrown it in the crock pot today with some chicken breasts from the freezer, blueberry syrup, a bit of ikea lingonberry, some curry powder, and a couple of small orange things that were beyond just peeling and eating. Planning to serve this fruity curried chicken over basmati rice with some broccoli...

We are generally the 'cook it from scratch' people, so it's pretty astounding for me to find anything that starts with "a bottle of, or a can of" and have my family be willing to eat it!, but we do have a couple of those - chicken breast smothered with a can of cream of something soup and 1/2 can of milk, then covered with a package of dry stuffing mix and baked, and meat (whatever flat meat) spread with mayo and Parmesan cheese, coated with breadcrumbs and baked. served with salad or frozen veg, dinner can be on the table in about an hour, even if the meat is frozen and has to be thawed in the microwave.... or you have to leave in the middle of dinner prep...
