I was looking for something to make to use up some of the food I had in the refrigerator. I go grocery shopping either over the weekend or early in the week. Then I proceed to stock up my fridge with a variety of meals the whole family can eat throughout the week. Tonight was no exception, I made a ham and hard boiled egg casserole that was so creamy and comforting. The great thing was all the boys ate this meal!!
When I can’t think of what to make, I go to my trusty hand me down recipe books. I kind of collect them from my mom and my grandmother. I have at least 10 of these Better Homes and Gardens cookbooks and I love them. This ham and hard boiled egg casserole was inspired by this book. I never would have thought to pop slices of hard boiled egg into a casserole.
I Stock my Fridge
Luckily I had ham and hard boiled eggs in my fridge. Who am I kidding my fridge is currently super stocked, of course I have the ingredients needed! My out-of-the-house job occurs Wednesday through Friday, where meal times are a little more hectic. Monday and Tuesday I am in stay at home mommy mode, which includes stockpiling meals. The meals are for lunches, left over dinner night, possibly a freezer meal, and things you can grab easily if you are running late. You can read about my weekly food prep and how a little extra time in the kitchen on grocery day, totally saves my sanity later in the week.
Like I said all of my boys ate the casserole. My husband, Mr. P, and I had it over a bed of rice. D-Man, my elder son with food allergies and the picky one about textures, had it separate from the rice. He ended up eating the rice also just not with the casserole over it. “That would be gross, Mom.” Then there’s Big-C, usually a great eater, when it’s something he recognizes. He is four and when items come on the table that look a little different he takes a little convincing. Luckily he loves peas, so I knew if I could get him to eat a pea he would gobble the rest of it up. I was right….all except for the rice.
We eat Hard boiled eggs
I mentioned my older son has food allergies. The foods we avoid in our home are peanuts, tree nuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, fin fish, shell fish and cucumbers. These are also the ingredients I avoid in all of my recipes here at Fun Happiness and Life. Occasionally I will include a recipe that may be dairy, egg or gluten free (I will mention it if that’s the case). But hey we are already avoiding other things and I love me some pasta and cheese.
