Recipe challenge, week thirty-four. Kind of.
I can't lie. I haven't cooked in awhile. In fact, grocery shopping isn't even fun anymore. In fact-in fact, I stopped at Chick-fila for dinner the other day when I knew Scott wouldn't be home until late. I really just wanted a giant unsweetened tea, but I figured a chicken wrap would hold me over as I hunkered down to two hours of paperwork on a Thursday night. How boring, right? The dogs weren't happy about it, but someone has to work to buy all those treats....
In fact, I've taken a step back from social media in general because I like to be intentional with things and right now I'm busy being intentional with things other than blogging. Mostly school stuff. But I've been insisting on half an hour of Pilates (at least) every day. It takes an extreme amount of forethought to put a workout into a busy day, and I'm the first one to admit that I've been going to bed too late. However, dinner has barely been getting made because by the time I leave school, drive 30 minutes home, and I feed/walk/play with the dogs, it's almost 6pm and I have stuff to do and I end up putting something together for Scott and I just eat whatever. It's not a practice I recommend. If I'm lucky, I keep up with the laundry and dishes as the week goes on. Which means not often.
However, I made these stuffed shells weeks ago and took them to my friend who'd just had a baby. I made a double batch so we had dinner for two nights too. I do love freezer cooking and this is a great example of something you can make, wrap up tightly, stick in the freezer, and pull out on a busy day.
It's not my recipe; I googled "healthy Mexican stuffed shells" and this is what came up. So I don't know if this counts because I didn't invent it. But it IS new and I DID make it and it's not like I'm writing a cookbook or plagiarizing, right?
I'll just post the link. Just in case.
