week of February 20

*Spiralized Sweet Potato, Kale and Bacon Quiche - I made my first-ever quiche crust!  It worked!  Some changes I made to this recipe: used half whole wheat flour, used pastry cutter instead of food processor, used 8 eggs, and mozzarella cheese.

Acorn Squash with Wild Rice Pilaf - I love this meal.  Half the enjoyment for me is making up the pilaf recipe as I go.  This time I included some rotisserie shredded chicken, celery, onion, garlic, toasted almonds and craisins with the wild rice cooked in chicken broth.

Dinner at neighbors' home

Brats, sweet potato fries, salad (Dad's dinner of choice when Mom's not home)

BBQ out with friends

Pizza Sandwich Melts, from One-Pan Recipes by Better Homes and Gardens:

Use ciabatta rolls.  Cut rolls in half.

Cover large roasting pan with tin foil.  Preheat oven to 350.

Line pan with bottoms of the bread rolls.  Use the following ingredients to layer on the roll bottoms:
one 12-oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 cup thin strips green sweet pepper
3 to 4 oz. sliced pepperoni
one 2.25 oz. sliced pitted ripe olives, drained
Top with 6 oz. shredded smoked mozzarella cheese

Spread cut sides of roll tops with one 8-oz. can pizza sauce (or make your own) and place on top to make sandwiches.

Combine the following and then pour evenly over sandwiches:
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp melted butter
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper

Bake, covered with foil, for 25 minutes at 350.  Remove foil and bake 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted and roll tops are light brown.
