So Beautiful

Welcome to another Monday, everyone!!  We had such a beautiful weekend.  There was really nothing planned, nothing to do, nothing to attend.....we just had a beautiful time together, as a family.  The weather was beautiful, the laughter and fun was beautiful------it was just so.  beautiful.  Great, great family weekend.  These are the beautiful weekends I live for.

Now, it's time for another week and another Menu Plan!  Here goes:

Monday:  Homemade Pesto and Chicken Calzones, Green Salad, Fruit (Carry-over from last week.  I ran out of flour!!)

TuesdayBaked Teriyaki Chicken Thighs, White Rice, Veggies

Wednesday:  Slow Cooker Roast, Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake, Creamed Corn

ThursdayTaco Sloppy Joes, Homemade Oven Fries, Smoothies

Friday:  Homemade Mac and Cheese, Smoked Kielbasa, Green Beans

I know you see our Homemade Mac and Cheese A LOT on my Menu Plans, so, I thought I'd give you guys the recipe.  In my opinion, it is absolutely THE BEST and easiest Mac and Cheese around.  I.  LOVE.  IT.  I grew up with my mom making it, and I've carried on the tradition.  DELISH!

Mac and Cheese Recipe:

Cook 2 cups macaroni, per package directions

Mix with:  2 cups cottage cheese

1 cup sour cream

1 egg

3/4 teaspoon salt

dash of pepper

8 ounces of shredded cheese (2 cups)

Pour into a 9x9 pan.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

It's that easy, folks!!  And, it freezes extremely well!!!
