Pizza Pasta Bake
I hate cooking on Friday’s. Only Friday’s.
Pizza and Pasta makes for Pizza Pasta Bake.
I don’t know if it’s by Friday my mind is tired and knows that it is going to get two days off, but when Friday comes it is really tough for me to cook ANYTHING. There are a few reasons for this:
- I’m tired.
- I don’t have any ideas.
- I’m tired.
Sometimes, this…mentality can carry over into Saturday’s. I can cook breakfast on Saturday’s but dinner is not something I feel like messing with. If I do cook on Friday or Saturday’s you better believe it is something really basic and general such as hamburgers, tacos, or an easy crockpot meal. I’m talking basic. Nothing fancy or experimental. In fact, my husband does not look forward to eating dinner on these two days in particular, unless we go out to et. Why? He knows that whatever gets cooked is not going to be anything with love, just something to eat.
I once heard that you can train your brain to not only think differently, but to also instill new habits and eliminate bad ones. I have really been trying to do this more lately with certain characteristic traits that have been created by pure laziness. Let me tell you, it isn’t eat to try to get your mind of the habit of doing something that it is accustomed to doing. Where am I going with this? Well this past Friday my mind went into a place that it never goes on a Friday night. I actually felt like cooking! I mean like I actually felt like cooking. I didn’t cook a 5 course meal but I did cook something easy and still with love.
I found it to be stroke of genius to come up with the Pizza Pasta Bake dish. It only took me about 30 minutes or so to make this dish as most of the ingredients I already had in my home. All I had to add was the magical ingredient to bring everything together, which is love…and cheese. This dish was incredible and it made for great leftovers. In fact, the leftovers were better than the dish on the first day. I am telling you, if you are like me and you don’t really feel like cooking anything by the end of the week, this will be your saving grace. You will, at least, have a meal on Friday and Saturday because it makes great leftovers!Print
