Pinterest Meal Ideas

I'm sure a lot of you have discovered the amazingness of Pinterest. If you're not familiar, it's a website that acts as a giant bulletin board. You can pin any image from any website to Pinterest to keep it for later. Like for instance, I have a crafts board with different crafts I'd like to try and a baby board where I keep stuff I think Harry would like. My favorite board is my food and drink board where I've pinned different recipes.

I hadn't made any of my pinned recipes yet so last night I made Chicken and Cheese Lasagna Roll-ups and Zucchini Parmesan.

Holy cow, the roll-ups were awesome! I divided the recipe in half since one third of our household is on an all-liquid diet and making eight roll-ups seemed a little excessive. I used all reduced fat cheeses and I sprinkled a little garlic in the chicken mixture.

I usually sauté zucchini, so broiling them was something different for me. Along with the Parmesan cheese I added a bit of garlic because you can never have enough garlic.  Ant said he liked the broiled zucchini better, so I guess I'll be doing that from now on; it's actually a lot quicker than sautéing, so that's fine by me!

I would highly recommend both of these recipes. The entire meal took about an hour to make, which wasn't too bad considering the roll-ups cook in the oven for about a half hour.

And just for fun, here are a bunch of pix I took of Harry on Thursday. He is getting so big and is so much more alert than he was even a couple weeks ago. It's just amazing to watch this little boy grow and learn new things every day!

He looks so goofy in the middle one :).

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
