Foodie Friday #2: Oldies but Goodies

Well, sorry this is so late in the day -it could almost be considered foodie saturday.  Anyway, this week I made two "oldies", but two meals that I love (probably because they are easy).

First...

Cheesy Tuna Noodle Casserole

Love this because it is easy and quick -and I have the recipe memorized.

4 cups cooked noodles (macaroni, penne, egg noodles, whatever you like)
2 cans cream of mushroom (or cream of chicken) soup
2 cans tuna (drained)
2/3 cup milk
1 tbsp butter or margarine
onion and garlic powder to taste (optional)
shredded cheese for top

mix everything (except cheese) together and put in a baking dish.  Sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake at 350 F for 20-30 mins.  I usually serve with corn (or other veggies)


And second...


Chocolate Chip Pancakes
...because, frankly, who doesn't love pancakes?  Oh, wait, that would be my husband!  But he was generous enough to eat leftovers that day so the rest of us could enjoy them!  Thanks, Paul!!

Even my Baby liked the pancakes (hers didn't have chocolate chips though).

1 cup flour
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp oil

mix dry ingredients in bowl.  mix wet ingredients in seperate bowl and add to dry mixture.  Stir til combined.  Then cook on a lightly greased griddle or frying pan.  I put some chocolate chips on after I pour them, then use a clean finger to gently push them into the batter and cover them.  Then the chocolate chips stay nice and gooey and don't burn.  Make them even more fun by making them shapes (use a spoon to put the batter on griddle instead of measuring cup). 

Happy cooking, everyone!!
