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!!)
Tuesday: Baked Teriyaki Chicken Thighs, White Rice, Veggies
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Roast, Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake, Creamed Corn
Thursday: Taco 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
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!!!
