After work today, I dipped into the grocery quickly to pick up some frozen ravioli and some mozzarella cheese, and then I headed home. I got home about 7:00. I made myself a salad because I was starving; I fed the dogs because they were too. They went outside for a while. I finished loading the dishwasher with the coffee cups we’d left behind this morning and the tupperware I brought home from my work lunch; I ran the dishwasher. I emptied the dishwasher. I re-loaded the dishwasher. I took out the trash and the recycling, took them to the road. I cleaned out leftovers in the fridge. I did 2.5 loads of laundry (there’s still some in the dryer). I moved around some furniture. I played fetch with Penny. I vacuumed. I answered 5-6 e-mails from students. I put in grades online in Blackboard. I read, reviewed, and submitted revisions for a report to Executive Staff.
And I made this Baked Ravioloi Casserole recipe I found on Pinterest. As I mentioned, now that Trent and I are both working such long and odd hours, I’m trying to make at least one meal a week that can actually serve as multiple lunches/dinners. Casseroles are great for that (so are Crock Pot meals). We have several go-tos, but I was looking for something new, so of course, I went to Pinterest, browsed, and pinned a bunch of things to try. This one was appealing because it sounded easy and good.
And it lived up to my expectations. It took about ten minutes to put it all together, and then it cooked for a total of 45 minutes. I’d highly recommend it.
Here’s how I did it and how it came out:
