    This happens when I invite my son and DIL that live across the landing. They bring the kids 1 and 2 yrs old who have already eaten and cause havoc at the table. I take them in the LR and play for 20 min and then my husband relieves me. If I make something too good, it's gone, but not to worry. I had leftover grilled salmon, basmatic rice, white pizza (pizza bianca) , homemade fruit salad, and 72% dark chocolate---not bad. It's Good Friday, and I should be fasting, but don't have the energy with Lockdown. I cleaned windows and shutters this morning.

    I will be video chatting with my parents as we share out traditional Sunday breakfast. Its the first time in 42 years that I am alive that our family will not be at the same table.

    tough time to be in separate places.

    Lockdown Good Friday Dinner - Tuna Noodle Casserole

    It's Good Friday, wanting to be meatless tonight, but tired of rice and beans and constrained by on-hand pantry stores.

    Well, this old-time classic dish came to mind, and we had the ingredients. Came out really well; this is probably the first time in 30+ years I've had this dish. It's pretty hearty/filling and MFP macros are about 718cals, 52g protein, 30g fat, 63g carb per serving.

    First off - "no canned soups were harmed making this dish." LOL. Made it from "scratch." Fresh ingredients - onion, celery, butter, garlic, block cheddar cheese (shredded). Everything else came from dry or canned pantry stores: tuna, noodles, flour (to thicken sauce), canned peas, panko, storebought grated parmesan, and -- gasp -- powdered milk. Fundamentally, the recipe I followed was: https://thestayathomechef.com/tuna-casserole/

    Minor adlibs from the recipe: this being Good Friday, I avoided chicken broth, using a bottle of clam juice I was saving for another day - this gave the dish a bit of a chowdery vibe. In addition, I used the canned tuna liquid as part of the broth to add more tuna taste, as I'm rationing my cans of tuna, which are also smaller at 4oz net (5 oz gross) than the recipe specified. On-hand Bermuda onion rather than white. Also sauteed some fresh celery for more greens. To complete the retro meal, I retro-garnished with sprinkled paprika and parsley prior to baking.

    Pics: (1) completed casserole (noodles and "stuff"), awaiting crumb topping. (2) completed and baked.

    We had chili. I wanted cornbread. We had no corn!

    This got me thinking; is there a similar dish for other sweet veggies? Hence the search for savory carrot bread recipes. OH MY GOSH.

    This is Martha Stewart’s Savory Carrot-Asiago bread! It’s got cayenne pepper and garlic powder, and since I had to use only what I had in the house due to sheltering in, I used a mixture of sharp cheddar and fresh grated Parmesan. The topping is a mixture of toasted flakes almonds and more grated cheese.

    It is SO DELICIOUS. the crust is crumbly and cheesy/buttery, and the inside is super moist, flavorful, sharp, cheesy, with a hint of cayenne.

    It was also an incredibly easy process, in case you’re looking for something simple to do with kids.

    I made this for Easter. I made it yesterday and it turned out exactly like your photo and is delicious! I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe! I lined my loaf pan with oven paper.

    PS: It's 300 cal for a 100g slice.

    A massive egg white omelette that was hiding goat cheese, garlic and sundried tomatoes in its folds of high protein goodness. Oh, and a quarter of an avocado on the side.
