Creamy goodness

So, yesterday was a yucky day. Snow, cold, brrrr. I desperately wanted a casserole. Okay, what I wanted was Mac and cheese. All the cheddar, all the time. Not a current option.

So, I surfed, and fiddled, and came up with:

1 pkg. fake crab.
5 0z. neufchatel
1 can Campbell's Healthy Request Cream of celery soup
1 small onion, 1 celery rib, 1 garlic clove sweated in 1 Tablespoon butter
1 16 oz. can artichoke hearts chopped
12 oz chopped spinach
1/4 c bread crumbs, 2 Tablespoons grated parmesan (for topping)
Cajun spices, salt and pepper

Worked out to less than 250 calories per serving (I baked it, served over rice [rice not part of the calorie count]), made four generous servings.

Tasted very fattening, but wasn't. Next time I'm putting in tabasco sauce and maybe more garlic. Boy loved it (but then, he loves spinach). I thought it was a little bland--but it was filling and satisfied my craving. Houston, we has casserole.

Instead of going to Rapier Academy, which we couldn't afford, Morguhn spent the day putting up storm windows and shrink wrapping the ones we don't have storms up for yet. I've been doing housework, shopping, and fretting 'cause I haven't heard back from the Massachusettes squirewife and I don't want to put up the lasagna unless I know for sure we are going out. Oh well. Guess I'll make it Monday. Wanted to get it out of the way, though.

Baking--maybe I'll bake. We'll see.

Have a consult Monday--routine, no worries--so I had to cancel my Monday classes, therefore next week I teach on Tuesday, and that's it. With luck I can get caught up and not have much to take with me to MA (assuming I or we go). And I'm taking some knitting. Maybe if I take a couple of my U.F.O.s I can finish one of them. That'd be lovely! So much wool, so little time.

Time to start dinner. Ta!
