The Nadalet Family

Welcome to our family, welcome to our blog. We are going to try and keep this current for those of you reading from afar (hey mom claire!) But we make no promises. And really, people don't want constant blog updates until there are kids. So in about 5 years this blog will really start going.

Please enjoy our sporadic posts on life as a married couple

Here's my menu for this week. Please enjoy!  And also, I am trying to figure out how to reheat casseroles, like what is the best way?  I'm prepping for our 10 day housesitting trip and I do not want to cook there, so pre-made casseroles was the plan. But I want to know the best way to reheat.

Monday - Leftover Enchiladas, reheated
Tuesday - Leftovers
Wednesday - Orange Chicken and Rice
Thursday - Mac N Cheese Casserole (reheated) and Broccoli
Friday - Tater Tot Casserole
Saturday - Grandma DeGhetto's Baked Ziti (mmmm delish!)
Sunday - Leftovers

Back when Mama and Papa first got married, Mama made casseroles all the time. Grandpa Duffy told her they would have to name the first kid "Cassie" because of all the casseroles.

I think the best way to reheat a casserole is in the oven, about 325 degrees, for 30-45 minutes depending on how dense it is. The top will get a little hard, so cover it with foil. You can also reheat in the microwave but I'm not good at estimating the time. Another option - sometimes you can make the casserole up to the point that it gets baked, then refrigerate, then just bake it when you're ready. You need to put it in a cold oven and allow some extra time if it's been refrigerated. (A hot oven will crack your Pyrex if it's been refrigerated.) Mom's lesson for the day.
