Love Bhunny

Bunnies, bunnies everywhere, but not a drop to drink

It snowed a bit earlier, just enough to wipe out any existing tracks outside.  I went outside tonight, and noticed there are rabbit tracks everywhere!  I was collecting vegetable scraps to leave out for the rabbits, but I never felt like trudging out to the woods.  Now I can see from the tracks that the rabbits come right up to the house, so I'll start collecting leftovers for them again and just leave them near the house.

Speaking of rabbits, I found a box of this stuff at Wal*Mart the other day.   Annie's Homegrown brand Chocolate Bunny Grahams.  Aieee!  Too cute!

Now we're cooking with gas.

Argh!  Stupid oven is broken.  The main element can't even heat the oven to 200ºF.  I was trying to cook dinner, but even after being in the oven set at 350º for 40 minutes, it's still ice cold and I can almost handle the dish with my bare hands.  I cranked up the oven to 500º for another 30 minutes, but it's still cold.  Now I'm trying to finish dinner using the broiler element, which still works.  The problem is the element doesn't really have any temperature control, it's either on full blast or totally off.

Gotta buy a new range this weekend.  :-P

Swiss Vegetable Casserole

This stuff is like green bean casserole on steroids.  It's also lacto-vegetarian and makes a great meal served over rice.

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a casserole dish, mix together a 10 oz can of cream of mushroom, 1/3 cup of sour cream, 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper, 2/3 cup French fried onions, 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese, and 1 pound (total) of broccoli, cauliflower, brocciflower, carrots and/or other vegetables (you can use frozen, just thaw them in the microwave first).  Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes, or until the veggies are done.

Uncover and top with 2/3 cup of French fried onions and 1/2 cup grated Swiss, then place back in the over for another 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted and started to brown.
