Chocolate & Banana "ice cream"

I have NOT made this...yet. But my friend just posted it to her pinterest. Have you checked out that site? Pinterest? It's pretty cool. Anyway, here's a low cal, super quick treat! I will be trying this soon.

*Freeze a banana, then combine with 2 tbsp cocoa powder and blend in a blender until smooth and creamy! Yum.

Broccoli Potato Bake

We just finished eating this tonight and I thought, Hooray! I finally have another recipe to post! This was pretty tasty and my kids ate it pretty well.

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, diced
  • 1/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 (12 ounce) package frozen hash brown potatoes
  • 1 (12 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in flour and salt. Add milk and stir until bubbly. Add cheese, and stir until all of the cheese is melted. Stir in potatoes and heat thoroughly.
  3. Pour half of the mixture into a 10x6 inch baking dish.
  4. Cook broccoli according to package instructions; drain well. Layer broccoli over the potatoes in the baking dish. Pour the remaining potato mixture over the broccoli. Sprinkle the bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon melted butter over the top of the casserole.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 to 35 minutes; or until bubbly and browned lightly

I threw together these sandwiches tonight and they really hit the spot!

Roasted chicken (delli sliced)
tomato (garden grown)
miracle whip (light, love these stuff)
toasted bread

It was a great cool meal to companion this blaze'n hot day.
