Five-cheese Ravioli

C and I recently had dinner at Rocky Mountain Flatbread – we ordered the Chef’s pasta special and a flatbread pizza. Both were amazing dishes that had great flavours. Though the flatbread was my favourite of the two, I really enjoyed the texture of the pasta itself.

Definitely didn’t taste like the commercial dried packaged pasta that we usually make at home. Anyhow, this sparked my curiosity to try making my own pasta. I don’t have a pasta rolling machine, so I had to use my rolling pin instead. All good, was more of a workout anyway =P

Pizza

Weather has been pretty warm lately, with the transition from a rainy spring to blazing sun… not complaining! Warm weather + breeze  = perfect weather. I made pizza for dinner today, but it probably wasn’t the best idea because it only added heat to the already warm kitchen. Why pizza in this hot weather? Well, we have another giant bag of mozzarella cheese in the fridge (Costco, obvs) and figured it should be eaten before it goes bad… the last bag went bad from sitting in the fridge too long.

Cheeseeee!

A few weeks ago, Chris and I had a hot-pot dinner with a few of his friends and Amy K. was grilling me for the longest time about the stuff I usually bake! haha j/k! Anyways, cheese scones somehow came up so after that dinner, I was planning to make them sometime in the near future since I still had a giant 5lb bag of shredded Cheddar/ Monterey Jack cheese in my refrigerator. Yah.. I know that’s a lot of cheese, but you can’t expect any less from Costco… they only sell the supersized variety of everything.

Rainy Day Casserole

This whole day has been a constant down pour of rain… and not just sprinkle rain, like heavy shower rain… such a downer… no wonder why they call it April showers. So glad I won’t have to truck out to school everyday soon.. last day of school for us is this Thursday, but exams officially start on Monday… boo. I also find it weird how my brothers just went back to school today, after their 2 weeks of spring break, and then 4 days after, my school ends… o well… SO glad they are back to school though… sick of seeing Mike come down the stairs at 3:30 in the afternoon and head to the kitchen to eat his breakfast… very unmotivating to know he pretty much slept over 12 hrs every night and did NOTHING during the day.

Anyhow, figured I’d squeeze in a post today, as I begin to study for upcoming exams. I decided to make a veggie casserole as a side for our dinner because we have a variety of vegetables lying around the house/ fridge, plus it’s very quick, easy and flexible.. as in you could add whatever you want into it! I believe this recipe is originally a Campbell’s recipe, however, I got lazy today and didn’t want to search it up, so I ended up just throwing in whatever vegetables I found in the fridge…. lol I love convenience..

Looks a lot like a spinach Quiche here…
