Bison & Mushroom Country Casserole

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Casseroles”. The theme for this week is way too large because there are so many things that can be classified as casseroles. My favourite being lasagna but I have made that way too many times so I decided to go more of classic that did not use cream of anything soup. This was definitely a good option due to how delicious it was. Also, with the colder weather coming in, I was craving comfort food.

I do have to say though, this is more filling than it looks and my eyes were much bigger than my stomach. But left overs for days!

Baked Mostaccioli

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Vacation Food”.┬áThere is this Italian restaurant near my parent’s house that I visit at least once or twice a year and someone at the table almost always orders this. Does it taste better? Probably but the flavours are very different. Given that, this is really damn good and I plan on making this many many times.

Kangaroo, Italian Sausage, and Beef Pasta Bolognese

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “ground meat”. When I first saw the theme, I felt it was fairly boring but then I remembered I have always wanted to try and make bolognese. I am glad I did because this was amazing. It almost made me forget that I was cooking for 5 hours… almost. I will definitely be making this again but probably for a special occasion.

Pastelon de Platano Maduro

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “bananas”. I knew I wanted to make an entree rather than a breakfast or dessert because that has been done before and I have never cooked with plantains before. This was actually pretty good even though my finger is still sore from peeling all of the plantains. It did come out a bit dry though so I suggest making a gravy with it or adding some water while cooking the filling which I did not do. Instead I covered it with sriacha and salsa (not picture) and it was still delicious. Next time, I definitely will add a bit more veggies to the filling as well.
