Last Nights Dinners

Ok, so this is not going to be the most healthy recipe ever, but in the spirit of the Bruins here we go… Nacho Casserole
I am not a sports fan at all. Actually, I hate watching sports but Hockey on the other hand… There is nothing better! Since the Bruins are in the Stanley Cup, our nights have been scheduled around games lately. Kev gets so into it. He screams and jumps and yells “did you see that?” all night long. haha. The other night I made a special game night dinner with lots of different appetizers. One of which was this Nacho Casserole. It was delicious. Mmm beans, cheese, salsa and chips. Is there anything better?

1 can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
1/2 cup low fat milk
1 jar of salsa (or you could use homemade)
1 bag of tortilla chips (have you tried the Hint of Pepper Jack yet? ahh so good)
1.5 cups of refried beans (homemade or from can)
1 jalapeno sliced
1 cup shredded cheese
Fresh Cilantro

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a ceramic or glass baking dish stir soup and milk together until well blended. Spread evenly.
2. Top with Chips and half of salsa.
3. Carefully spread beans across chips, sprinkle with some cheese.
4. Top with chips and remaining salsa.
5. Sprinkle with cheese, cilantro and jalapenos.
6. Bake in over for about 20 mins.

Rowans Dinner:
Butternut Squash with some fresh OJ

Butternut Squash
Butter (just a tiny little dab)
This is a really simple dinner. Perfect for younger babies too. If I have the time, I will buy a whole butternut squash, slice it up and cook it, but in a pinch you know what is super helpful? The frozen veggies at the grocery store. I’ve read that frozen vegetables seal in vitamins because they are frozen right away. Anyway, steam your butternut squash then add to a blender. Squeeze in some juice from an orange to add some mixing liquid. Add just a touch of butter. Blend together and you are good to go!

  1. I’m such a sucker for loaded nachos – YUM! Also, thanks for the tidbits on Rowan’s meals, I’m definitely compiling them to a list for my Naja!

    Hi! What kind of infant bowl and spoon are pictured? They are cute.

  3. Those nachos look delicious, Jen! I recently started dating a serious hockey lover and I think this might be just what he needs for the finals. And hopefully my kitchen skills will get him thinking a little more, um, long term… ; )

    Thanks for posting!



  4. I love looking at Rowan’s Dinners! So cute 🙂

  5. Mmmm…I’m on a diet but this is going on my ‘cheat meals’ list! Rowans dinner sounds yummy too and could easily be adapted (minus the blender) into a healthy sidedish. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Yum yum! As a fellow Canadian engaged to a die-hard Bruins fan – we are enjoying all the playoff mayhem as well. 🙂 Go Bruins!


  7. Her dinner’s are adorable…actually, I’m a sucker for whipped butternut squash myself…

  8. mmm that looks amazing! & I am a huge Bruins fan as well!

  9. Go Bruins, I think I know what I’ll be eating during Game 4 tomorrow night! Thanks for the recipe!

  10. That looks so delicious!

  11. I just want you to know that I love, I mean LOVE that you have added Rowan’s dinners too. I have a baby that is a week younger than yours and I have done many things similar (cloth diapers, etc). but when making my baby food it has been a bit of a challenge because he is sensitive and gets diaper rashes a lot from the solids. However, it gets me that much more determined to make my baby food tasty and different with these recipes! Love it!

  12. it doesn’t matter what is on the television… i would eat that delicousness watching the opera! it looks amazing!


  13. Hey! You’re canadian! You’re suppose to be cheering for the Canucks!!

    I am loving that you leave a recipe for Rowan as well. Do you use that beaba cook book a lot? If you really use it I’ll take your word on it and pick one up. I’m looking for some ideas to spice up Matteo’s food eventually.

  17. Oh man, I’m obsessed with any variation of that dish. All it takes to make me happy is beans and cheese 🙂

  18. Oh goodness. Nacho casserole looks amazingly amazing right now. Nom!

  19. I’m so jealous of your Stanley Cup experience, I miss all of last year’s excitement around here when the Blackhawks won! Best wishes for a SC victory though since the Hawks are out already! 🙂

  20. oh my goodness, yum. these sound so good!!!

  21. oh man that nacho casserole sounds amazing!! i might have to make it for my husband and i this week.
