Since this dessert has to be made a day ahead, we decided to let me bake it for cook night. I really enjoyed baking it. However, it is a little time consuming.
After beating the batter, I placed it in a 9x13 dish. It says in the recipe that when u poor it in that it may not look like a lot of batter. It wasnt. After baking it, it still remained smaller. However it was amazing how much of the glaze the cake soaked up. It's VERY IMPORTANT to let our soak overnight!!! It was good. Probably not my favorite but it was good.

First Menu 40. The chicken Parmesan was good although mine ended up being a little dry. I probably cooked it for too long. I would probably just mix it up in the sauce more next time before serving. Still good! The garlic monkey bread was easy to make although I definitely cooked it too long as well! I made the blondies a few months back and my family really enjoyed them!
Onto Menu 27. I did have to make some changes to the macaroni and cheese because I didn't have a gluten free condensed cheddar cheese soup. I ended up just leaving it out and it still turned out great, maybe just not as soupy. I was the only one that liked it though, my kids prefer Kraft I guess:) We also really liked the chicken nuggets. I used rice krispies instead of cornflakes and these were gobbled up.
Menu 21. We ate this last night and it wasn't too tricky to put together. My meatloaf did have to cook for a while longer but I used 2 lbs so maybe that is why. I messed up a little on the potatoes. When I was cooking them I also was making the dessert and actually poured sugar into the boiling potatoes..oops. I don't think it mattered too much. I didn't end up putting them in the crock pot. We aren't the biggest fans of meatloaf over here but we all thought it was decent. My kids loved the dessert and between today and yesterday the half recipe I made is gone. I wasn't a fan of the frosting with the crisco. I used snickers instead of butterfingers because we had several lying around.

This week we decided to split up the recipes. We are behind so we are doing the roast, pretzel jello, and cheesecake. My job was the cheesecake. I really enjoyed making it. It was a little involved and made a lot of filling. I have to agree with jackie. Buy 2 graham cracker crust and make 2. Or make your own graham cracker crust, put it in a 9x13 pan and make cheesecake squares. Lots of extra filling! I had a few lil graham cracker crusts I used but still had to throw out some filling. We are eating it tonight at Audrey's so when she posts then we will see how it tastes. I think its gonna be great!
