Where is this coming from?

This sudden Domestic-ness about me? (Yes, it's a word. Because I said so dammit.)
All morning I've been thinking about Stuffed Shells. Eating them is mostly the thought, but realizing I would have to make them in order to eat them, because where the hell am I going to go right now and get Stuffed Shells? (Besides Olive Garden, but hell no I'm not rich so nix that.)
So I'm hoping that I can get to the supermarket and back home again before my house is flooded with Daddy's friends who have no home (or so it seems) and I can cook for just my family.
Here's the thing- I want to hear your Stuffed Shells ideas. I know everyone makes them a little different, so I want you to share how you make them with me. Or at least what you stuff the shells with, because mine will most likely probably consist of meat and sauce and maybe some Ricotta cheese.
The floor is open. Grab the mike and speak to me.

My God woman! Have you gone mad? Now I'm hungry and no prospect of food anywere me. Rats! 'tis feed the belly time! I have no recipes. I don't do stuffed shells, mostly because The Hubby hates anything that is made of pasta. But maybe instead of ground meat you could put turkey on it. With bacon bits. Everything tastes better with bacon.

Ohhhh, and use that adobo seasoning in the yellow box. The one for salads and vegetables. It gives everything that extra oomp! And a nice avocado to compliment. Even though I can't help you with the shells, I can give you a super easy coconut ice cream recipe (limberg, as PR people call it:)

Hi Diana!!! I've been reading your blog for a while and since I was reading your blog I started reading all the other mom's blogs and now I have a folder with mom's blogs... which I love!!! Some things I read make me laugh coz I'm not a mom yet -though I'm like one to the twins- but it's a good way to see what to do in certain situations and to laugh about some 'accidents' and stuff.
I don't update my blog too often but you're free to check it whenever you want.
Hope you have a great weekend!!!

I wish I cooked, but I don't really enjoy it. Let us know how the shells turned out!

Stuffed shells? Huh...

Why eat those when KFC exists!

dennis said...

well, to take tony's question one step further, why not combine two delicious foods and stuff the shells with KFC??

Interesting concept, Dennis. But, why not forgo the shells and just stuff the KFC with some more KFC? You can never have too much fried chicken...

dennis said...

Sourpatch: Yes, but Diana wanted Ideas on how to stuff shells. So that would indicate she wanted noodles wrapped around something...even though, and Tony can confirm this, KFC is a food that could be eaten by itself... :>

Diana said...

Funny you guys bring up KFC- my sister was actually telling me to stuff the shells with chicken, though I'm sure she didn't mean fried chicken.
Cripes, now I want KFC. Curse you Tony!!!!

Diana: C'mon! You know that she meant KFC.

Dennis: Noodles, smoodles. Diana will do as we say. If we say no to pasta, yes to KFC she'll do it. Because we said so. Plus, if she didn't want the internet controlling her every thought she shouldn't have asked.

Tony: nice going on getting control of her mind. Now let's see you put your power to good use and make her get me a sandwich. Preferably one with KFC in it.
