"Monday Monday"

"Monday Monday, so good to me,Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guaranteeThat Monday evening you would still be here with me. Da, Da.... Da, Da,Da.... Da

Hello Blog Buddies, Well I had a great start last week, but then it kind of went downhill towards the end and I did not get a chance to update, so here I am Monday and starting a new week. I am so grateful to God, that he always gives me new days and weeks to start over. Lets hope I can do better this time.
So for today, I wanted to share with you my newest Recipe page for the recipe swap I am part of. This time it is Casseroles. I found this cute little recipe page idea on SplitCoast. I did not have the same little Chef guy, which I believe is from SU, so I went online and searched for another little Chef guy. I think he is just adorable and seemed to work out great on the recipe page.

The recipe that I chose for my page is called Tuna Alfredo Casserole. YUM!!! YUM!!! This is a excellent recipe and even better the next day. Here is the recipe below

Tuna Alfredo Casserole
2 (7 oz ) pouches of Albacore White Chunk Tuna
1 12 oz. Package of Ronzoni Healthy Harvest extra wide noodles (Fiber)
Bread crumbs
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup carrots, chopped finely or grated
1 stick butter
¼ cup diced onion
Grated Parmesan
½ pint of heavy cream
1 8oz. Cream Cheese
6 oz. of Romano cheese
½ cup of Sour Cream
½ cup of milk mixed well with 2 T. flour
Cook egg noodles till tender. Set aside. Saute celery, carrots, and onion until slightly tender.
In a sauce pan melt ½ stick butter, Cream Cheese, Sour Cream, and Romano Cheese in ½ pint of heavy cream.
Let cheeses melt some and then slowly add in ½ regular milk/flour to mixture.
Heat until sauce thickens and is creamy texture.
In large bowl, stir in tuna, sauted veggie mix, cooked noodles and ½ of cheese mixture.
Mix all ingredients well. Add in more cheese sauce if desired, or store the rest for different recipe.
Place mixture in a large casserole dish. Sprinkle with desired amount of Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Serves 6-8. Serve with salad and garlic bread

My Fiber highlight this week is Avocado.This little fruit of goodness is loaded with 7 to 10 grams of fiber depending on the size. I add it to my salads, fajitas, make guacamole, and sometimes I just spoon it right out of the skin and gobble it down. Its just soooo good and so good for you!!! However you eat it is not the matter. Just that you eat it!!!

Ok, that's it for now. Hopefully I will have more later in the week.
