Mar. 26 - Leftovers

We spent the day at the library and ACAC in West Chester (MOMS Club activity - they have a moonbounce, giant inflatable slides, and an inflatable obstacle course set up for an hour of running around and playing, and then we swim in their indoor kiddie pool for an hour - SO FUN!). Afterwards, we had our new friends, Christy and Logan, over to hang out and kill the rest of the afternoon so we wouldn't sit at home bored, staring at the clock. Needless to say, by the time dinner rolled around, the last thing I felt like doing was cooking!

I reheated the black bean pie for dinner and I must say - it is even better the next day. There are certain foods that just taste better reheated, and this is definitely one of them. The boy and Miss L had ziti leftovers, which they both scarfed down. I forgot to repost the ziti recipe yesterday, so I'll repost it now:

Baked Ziti
1 lb ziti noodles
1 lb ground sausage
1/2 lb ground beef
3 cups mozzarella cheese
3 cups marinara/spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Cook ziti in boiling water; drain.
  3. Brown meats; drain off fat.
  4. In a large baking dish, layer ziti, meat, cheese and sauce; repeat until everything has been used.
  5. Top with Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake about 30 - 40 minutes until bubbly.
