Hump day!

Since I do not have a job until later today, I decided to cook. My one job today is one of my favorite people. A 95 year old man with Parkinson's that goes out 2-3 times a week for dinner.

Today's menu:
Mac and cheese lasagna

Healthy brownies:
1 can pumpkin
1 box devils cake mix
Mix both together until smooth, put in 9×9 Pyrex, then cook at 350 for 30 minutes. When a toothpick comes out clean, they are done!

Mac and cheese lasagna:
2 boxes mac and cheese
1 pound ground beef
1 bottle spaghetti sauce
2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
Parmesan cheese (light covering over top)
Cook mac and cheese per box instructions
Brown beef
Make a layer of mac and cheese, a layer of beef mixed with spaghetti sauce, layer of cheese, then repeat. Make 2 layers and cook at 350 for 40 minutes. Don't put Parmesan on until 5 minutes before it's done.

I like Underwood canned chicken so I decided to make my own. Their can ingredients are only chicken, water, and salt. I am putting the chicken in the slow cooker for 5 hours. I will then take the bones out and ground up the chicken and then I have the exact same thing I was spending $2 a can on!!! And I will do it with minimal sat since I try to keep my salt intake low. I can't wait to have some!

When I told my son what I was making, he said, "I look forward to everything other than the chicken (he is NOT a chicken fan). So I'm glad he will eat too!

Speaking of food! It's been a week since I bought bananas and tried the trick to wrap the top of each in Saran Wrap. I'm impressed because it actually works!!! This is the last banana left a week after buying them. I checked and the originals were bought on August 2nd so it really has been a week!

I took the photos from google (other than my banana) just to give credit where it's due.

So that's my day. I hope everyone else has a good day as well.
