Monday night, we had dinner at my mom's house (Mimi to my boys). Two things you should know about Mimi....Mimi is the most awesome cook, and Mimi doesn't know how to cook for less than 50 people. I obviously benefit from both of these, as my kids eat her cooking as if they've been starving for 2 weeks, and I get to bring home copious amounts of leftovers. YAY for leftovers!! Well, Mimi makes this great cornbread dish that my brother, sister and I have been eating since we were all kids. We have always called it "cornbread stuff". That's it...just cornbread stuff. "What is cornbread stuff?" you ask. Cornbread stuff is cornbread with a layer of ground beef and sausage, creamed corn, onions, mushrooms, and a ton of cheese all cooked into the middle until it is ooey gooey melted goodness. Holy haberdashery Batman!!! My mouth is watering just thinking about this dish. It really is super scrumptiously delicious. Yes, my kids ate it Monday night as if I hadn't fed them all day. She made 2 huge cast iron skillets, and to my delight, cornbread stuff came home with us. Over the weekend, I made the Pasta Fagioli, and it turned out very good. So, Tuesday's lunch was cornbread stuff and Pasta Fagioli. They were some happy boys!

*homemade Pasta Fagioli with Colby-Jack cheese on top- I cut the cheese with the CuteZCute Cuddle Palz bear cutter and placed it on top of the Pasta Fagioli after it was heated so that it would get all ooey, gooey, and melty. This soup is delicious. My kids love it. You can find the recipe for it HERE.

*Nonni's almond pistachio crisps- These crisps are a cross between a biscotti and a chip. My kids love them for a snack. They have no added color, no preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, and are loaded with pistachios and almonds. I bought these at Super Target, and they have quickly become one of our favorite snacks.
