With so much sugar stuff being baked and made the last few days, I really needed something cheesy and healthy. So I started of this morning making my shopping list for the medical team for tomorrow, Thursday and Friday. I have 4 people on the eye team Wednesday and 5 people for Thursday and Friday and I have to make food for all of them today, to take with us to the south. It is too much work to cook over a wood fire and it is too hot to do it there. The restaurants are all grease and too expensive, so my menu is planned at home and most of it is cooked and prepared here for each eye team and then taken with us. This saves lots of money and is also more healthy.
Cheese and Spinach Squares
6 tbsp. flour
1 pkg. spinach
2 cups cottage cheese
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. curry powder
Beat in large bowl, 3 eggs and 6 tbsp. flour.Add torn up spinach, cottage cheese, grated cheese and salt. Mix well. Spread in greased 8 x 10 pan.Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min.Let stand 5 minutes, cut into squares.
Potato, Cheese, and Onion Pie
3 cups onions 2 tbsp. butter 1 can (10 1/2 oz.) cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup water salt and pepper to taste
pinch of sage
6 medium potatoes, cooked and sliced
1/4 pound cheddar cheese sliced (I use shredded cheese)
Brown lightly onions in butter; and cook slowly until tender. Add soup and water; season with salt, pepper and sage. Arrange potatoes and half of cheese in 2-quart casserole. Pour onion mixture over ingredients in casserole and top with remaining cheese. Bake in preheated hot oven (400 degree) for 15 minutes (I leave it in for 30 minutes to get it heated through) or mixture is heated and cheese is lightly browned. Top with pastry wedges. Roll pastry 1/2 inch thick to form a round that fits top of casserole. Cut into 4 wedges and brush with beaten egg yolk or cream. Bake on cookie sheet in oven with potatoes for 15 minutes. (I prefer it without the pie pastry).
