Chili relleno casserole (recipe in the comments from January 10, 2008)
Corn tortillas, red salsa

Hot tea
Reaspberry lemon ice
This was the perfect meal for tonight. It was pretty chilly today and by evening very rainy. The warm casserole was great, but the lighter even summer-y flavors were perfect for early fall. Also, this may very well be our last local melon for the year and it was AMAZING! This is also a great meal because it's so easy. There were no classes today (Yom Kippur), so I came home early to work and quickly made the casserole before I went to get T from daycare. M pulled the casserole out just as we got home. How easy is that?

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Super easy
Chopping: Scallions, grate cheese, melon
Time: 10 minutes to prep, 35-40 minutes to bake
Make ahead: I often will put the solid layers in the pan and whip the eggs and milk ahead, pouring the custard on just before baking.

"It's like a mix of summer and fall - just like our weather!"

The kid report:
T loved this and even was unusually excited about salsa tonight. We were so excited about watching him eat little burritos :)
