I meanwhile am trying to keep up with feeding Liam and his friends. This week I’ve devoted Recipes for Health to do-ahead casseroles – a couple of lasagnas, a couple of Provençal style gratins (three green, winter squash), and a wonderful Macaroni and Cheese made with terrific whole wheat noodles from MagNoodles, with an olive oil-based béchamel and some broccoli thrown into the mix. I tested the recipes a few weeks ago and froze them. They are coming in very handy this week as I am so busy getting ahead on Christmas, going to parties, and testing recipes for upcoming Recipes for Health. Of course, they go more quickly when the eaters are 16 year old boys just home from the basketball court; luckily I’m also working on hearty soups, coming soon….
