You have four unexpected guests showing up for dinner in less than an hour, you haven't been to the store in days, and you want to impress them with a delicious meal. What do you serve them?
Well I'd serve them a slab of mexican bean lasagne, with some corn and avacado salad and their choice of garlic or cheese and herb bread. Then they could have a slice of frozen praline meringue torte. (Sorry I finished the lemon meringue pie off yesterday).
On Tuesday, when I cooked daz his birthday dinner, I made enough lasagne for roughly 200 people. Jem supplied enough garlic bread to match. ( I keep finding little foil parcels of leftover bread in my fridge and freezer.)
So we had leftover lasagne for dinner on Wednesday and Thursday, but this morning I said to Daz, I don't think I can eat it another night. (Although I just did have a spoonful while standing at the fridge).
So come on over. The torte is especially delicious.
By the way – what is Monterey Jack cheese? My lasagne recipe has it in it as well as parmeson and tasty cheddar. But I've always just used mozzarella instead of the jack. What would I replace it with?
