Pasta Pizza Casserole

This dish is delicious. It also only requires ingredients that I almost always have anyway.

1/2 box spaghetti
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 jar regular marinara sauce
Lots of shredded cheese
Your favorite pizza toppings

Cook the spaghetti.
Beat the eggs with the milk in a separate bowl.
Drain the pasta then return to original pot.
Stir in the eggs and milk and mix thoroughly.
Put the mixture into an oven dish (it makes a lot, so I used two dishes).
Then cover the pasta with the marinara sauce.
Cover the marinara sauce liberally with shredded cheese.
Put your pizza fixings on the top (I suggest pepperoni or olives).
Then bake in the oven for 12-15 min at 350 degrees.

Green Tomatoes

I recently bought some green tomatoes at the farmer's market. I wasn't really sure what to do with them, and all of the recipes I found on the internet required ingredients that were too rarely used to be found in my kitchen (i.e. flour), so I improvised.

Slice one green tomato about 1/2-1/4.
Pour some oil onto a frying pan and cook the slices of tomatoes on med hi. Salt and pepper to taste. Flip them occaisionally. They should turn brown on both sides.
When they're done cooking you should be able to cut them into smaller chunks with a spatula.
Then eat them.

They're also very good when added to pasta.

WARNING: If you don't like green tomatoes, you won't like this recipe. I like green tomatoes, but you might not.

My mom would never let me eat anything that had a lot of dye in it, so if I had known that tye-dyed bread existed, I never would have been able to try it.

My sister and I made beef stroganoff. I didn't think it tasted great. The recipe used Worcestershire sauce, Sherry, sour cream, and some other stuff. It was just a little weird, and the color of the sauce didn't look like any Stroganoff sauce I've ever seen. It was pink because of the tomato paste.

In other news, I <3 Vivaldi.

Blogger Grammar

When you "publish" a post, Blogger puts up a message which reads:

This may take a minute, if you have a large blog.

This drives me crazy! The independent clause is first, so that comma is NOT NECESSARY!

Monster Pasta

Sarah, I am planning to make your monster pasta this week. I bought the ingredients today. However, your recipe was a little vague ... First of all, it calls for one CAN of shredded chicken. I have a problem with meat in cans. I find it odd. So I am boiling and shredding my own chicken. I believe it will enlongate my life to do so. Also, there are a lot of different sizes of cans, so I don't know how much chicken this really translates to. Same with the cottage cheese. I think I bought a 10 oz container, which was the smallest I could find. My plan is to mix the cheese and chicken in equal ratios and call it good. Is this going to end poorly?

I bought quite a lot of food today. I am planning on making Sarah's dessert recipe again, the Haystacks. They were just so tasty last time! I needed to buy a loaf of bread, and they had a loaf of that white bread that is tye-dyed really brightly in all different colors. I used to eat it when I was pretty young, and I haven't seen it since. I wanted to buy it primarly because it seemed like it would be really funny to offer to make Ren some toast and then hand him toast made of bright green/blue/red/yellow swirls. However, they only had one loaf, and it was slightly stale. Alas.

Peaches

I went to the grocery store on Friday, and they had a TON of peaches! Is it peach season?
