What I Ate This Week | Casseroles and Wasa

Wasa and Cheese

This week started off with two delicious casserole recipes. And it kind of went downhill from there because I spent the last half of the week in this vicious migraine-and-lack-of-sleep cycle. The caffeinated Excedrin is the only thing that works for my migraines, but I’m sensitive to caffeine so if I have Excedrin anytime after 3pm, I don’t sleep. So I just didn’t sleep at all Wednesday night. Not an hour, not ten minutes, not at all! And since then, the migraines keep coming back as soon as the Excedrin wears off. Basically, I’m both hopped up on caffeine and exhausted. So the week that started with so much promise is ending with cheese on a Wasa.

Here’s what I ate this week:

Cauliflower and Tofu Lasagna with Butternut Squash SauceCauliflower and Tofu Lasagna with Butternut Squash Sauce // This was from one of my early recipe posts. It makes a small lasagna, but with the tofu, cauliflower, and whole wheat pasta, each portion is really filling. We’ve still been doing a lot of planning for leftovers (then we have half as many meals to prepare each week!), so we had this two nights in a row.

Sweet Onion CasseroleSweet Onion Casserole // This casserole is so good and it’s only 5 PointsPlus per serving. I love the way smoked cheese smells when it’s baking in the oven.

Banana Strawberry Oatmeal MuffinsBanana Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins // Here’s a little sneak peak of a recipe I’ll be posting next week. These muffins are full of fruit and whole grains, but they still taste good.

Barbecue Tempeh SandwichesBarbecue Tempeh Sandwiches // I make these fairly often because they’re super easy! I thinly slice a slab of tempeh, marinate it in barbecue sauce, and then toss it in a skillet and heat until the sauce has thickened. My husband made them this time because I wasn’t feeling so hot (which is my explanation for the lousy picture too–the last thing I felt like doing was photographing food).

Wasa and CheeseWasa + Cheese // I swear, this is good. It really is! Heat your broiler, put 3/4 of an ounce of cheese on a Wasa, and then stick it in the oven until the cheese gets all melty and bubbly. I’ve been having these with my Middle Eastern Lentil and Rice Soup for lunch.

Awww!! I’m sorry you are feeling bad…. hopefully it will go away soon.

What in the world is wasa? I’ve never heard of it. (I swear I don’t live in a bubble…..) 🙂

Thank you–I think if I could just catch up on sleep, that would help!

Wasa is a brand of Scandinavian crackers. I think they’re called crispbread on the package (or something like that), but they’re usually sold near the crackers at the supermarket. They’re not so great by themselves, but they’re really good with hummus, cheese, and other toppings.

I hate migraines, and I hope you feel better next week. I had to take excedrin migraine this morning, but unlike you the caffiene doesn’t keep me up.

How is it that you make even crackers and cheese look amazing?! I keep meaning to try that sweet onion casserole too. Do you know if it freezes well? That might be a good post-partum dish to have prepared. What do you think is causing your migraines? You’ve been plagued with these things pretty regularly here lately and I so feel for you.

I think it would freeze well–it seems like it would. And I think it’s also something that you could make a day in advance and cook later.

I have a physical this week with my regular doctor (the hospital said my bloodwork was okay, but my doctor thinks it’s off–ugh!), so I’m going to ask about getting something else for my migraines. The only prescription thing I’ve tried was a preventative that I took everyday & it made me feel so out of it. I know this sounds weird, but I always get more migraines in the winter. I have a theory that it has something to do with my sinuses & the air being so dry.

I have a crush on the fabric in the Wasa photo. I’ve come by to view it at least 4 times… Of course, the food looks yummy, as always! This blog has quickly become my favorite. I spend more time here than on my own 😀 I hope you feel better.

I was wondering if anyone would say anything about that! I like you even more now! 😉 It’s from Fabricworm. I have a big hoard of cute/bizarre fabric from them. I bought it to make catnip kickers for my cats.

And thank you for the kind words about my blog. It means so much to me to hear that!
