Philly Cheeseburger Gnocchi Bake

Philly Cheeseburger Gnocchi Bake | A fantastic hearty gnocchi-filled Philly cheesesteak meal cooked in a cast iron skillet to perfection #recipe #castiron

It is no surprise that I am digging this gnocchi bake. It's got all the elements of a great meal: PHILLY CHEESESTEAK. I mean, 3 1/2 years ago if you told me Philly cheesesteak anything was for a meal, I would probably have fake gagged and made a distasteful face to go along with it. I made my own Phillies during one of Nick's deployments because it's one of his favorite foods and that was it. I suddenly found myself liking Philly cheesesteak anything. I've been all sorts of cheesesteak goodies and I know Nick absolutely loves that I am just as obsessed with cheesesteaks now :)

I am also completely obsessed with my cast iron skillet! Nick and I just celebrated 10 years of being together and he got me another cast iron skillet from the Lodge Cast Iron Factory. I hope we can get into a house soon, so I can use them! :) So basically this recipe is just everything that is right in the world and super delicious!

Muddy Buddies or Puppy Chow - what do you call it? I typically call it puppy chow, but I like to keep the name that the original poster used. Plus I guess not everyone knows that the alternate name is puppy chow and they are like "WHY ARE YOU FEEDING YOUR KIDS DOG FOOD???". I promise this is NOT dog food - it's far from it! This recipe of muddy buddies reminded me a ton of the Cinnamon Roll Chex Mix I posted last December - just in muddy buddy form. They are a little messier, but still addictive as all get out! :)

Fantastical Friday: Life Lately

I'm kind of unprepared for today. I wanted to share a roundup of crockpot dessert recipes, but forgot to ask around to see who had some good ones to share. I didn't want to do a pregnancy update because I just did one last week and not much has changed...21 weeks today. Woo! So I decided to share a few pictures and babble a bit.

I just finished my sixty hour in-class observation time and have been furiously writing 4 papers this week. I still need to finish my last one. But I'm procrastinating. I probably would have been done, but I decided to work on my laptop and then I got distracted by fixing it. I think I finally have all the mess of problems wrong with it fixed and it's running faster and better now, so that's good.
