Bocce Ball Potluck

For this month's Heights Time Bank potluck, Matt and I hosted an evening of Bocce ball in our driveway. I gave Matt a few ideas of things we could make for a main course. Once he picked macaroni and cheese, I decided we should run with the theme: "Bland in color but not in flavor."

For the mac & cheese, we followed my best friend's recipe:

  • Mix 2 cups cheddar cheese, 2 cups cooked pasta, 1 beaten egg, 2 cups cottage cheese, and 1 cup of sour cream in a bowl. Transfer to a baking dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
We also made a spinach and artichoke dip:
  • Mix one can of chopped artichoke hearts, 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, a thing of softened cream cheese, some thawed frozen spinach, a clove of garlic diced, and 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese. Transfer to a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
Finally, we made an apple crumble. Deliciousness!

I love having some sort of gathering at least once a month. Even when I'm no longer the time bank coordinator, I'm going to try and maintain the tradition of planning a monthly get together.

Next month will be a picnic at Discovery Green followed by a silent movie. So fun!
