You know what I am learning over and over again? Fourteen and thirteen year old boys eat. A lot. And growing eleven year old girls can give them a run for their money.
A soft taco for lunch just isn't going to cut it like it used to.
So, I have been thinking of ways to fill these tummies without going broke.
Enter The Cobbler.
I call it The Cobbler because you can make it with any fruit you have. Well, almost any fruit. I dont' think Banana Cobbler would be very good.
I take frozen fruit from this summer-peaches, blueberries, and blackberries and I just thaw and throw into a baking dish. Add the juice and all because that is what makes it super yummy when it cooks. You can sprinkle a little sugar on top of the fruit if you want.
Then mix up these three ingredients in a separate bowl:
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup milk (I make up instant milk and use it for this-can't tell the difference)
Mix well and then pour over the fruit. Bake until done-I think it takes about 30 minutes. I just watch it until it looks brown on top, but remember-you don't want it to get too dry or all the yummy juice will evaporate.
When I make it for my bunch I double everything and put it in a 9 x 13 dish.
Not much freezer cooking has happened this week. I did make Mac and Cheese Casserole for lunch yesterday and made two for the freezer while I was at it. I think that was it.
I have been saving our veggie leftovers this week and tomorrow I am making veggie-roast beef soup. I have half a shredded cooked roast I froze awhile back and I'll pull it all out tonight along with the tomatoes and tomorrow we will have soup and cornbread for supper. :)
