Swell Supper: Tres Yummy French Fall Comfort Food

“Oooo La La, this stew is French,” says my five and a half year-old daughter the other day. Channeling Fancy Nancy. Then she offers up this random refrain: “Mom, spinach makes Popeye strong so let’s get strong.” Popeye?  Get strong? Where does my kid pick this stuff up? Is Popeye even on TV anymore?  Well, if it gets her eating spinach then fine by me. So for our supper we’re doing Vegetarian CassouletBaked Spinach and Rice, and for dessert we’re listening to Lisa Loeb’s Hello Lisa on the iPod (RIP Steve Jobs) while we cook Lisa Loeb’s Banana Layer Cake! She’s just the cutest and her Banana Layer cake is the yummiest!

Start your meal by making dessert. Put on a little Hello Lisa and bake her banana layer cake. When the cake is finished and frosting licked clean from the bowl, move on to dinner. Prep the veggies for the vegetarian cassoulet and continue the recipe until it is simmering. Begin making the rice according to the package directions and get the rest of the baked spinach and rice ingredients ready.


When the rice is cooked combine the ingredients and place in the oven. Back to the cassoulet, put the beans in and let it continue to simmer until everything is ready. While you are waiting have a dance party and set the table. Serve up dinner and finish it off with some irresistible banana layer cake. Now doesn’t that sound swell?
