So cheesy

I’m almost ashamed to admit this, but this is the first time I’ve made macaroni and cheese when it hasn’t come from a box! I used Martha‚Äôs Creamy Macaroni-and-Cheese recipe that Leeetz used here – it was so convenient with all the halved measurements! The only thing I did differently was that I decided to include the bread crumbs that she omitted.

So decadent! The lovely aroma of all that cheese wafting through the kitchen made me determined to find something healthy to put on the side. The only vegetables I had left in the fridge were 1/2 of a cucumber, a red pepper, and red onion. I chopped them all up, and drizzled with some red wine vinaigrette.

Dinner is served!

The best part is that there are plenty of leftovers for my lunch tomorrow, and probably another meal after that. The word on the street is that the creamy cheesiness reheats well – can’t wait to see for myself!

March menu

Sometimes the hardest part about cooking dinner is figuring out what to make. It’s so much easier (especially after a long, annoying day at work) when everything is already laid out for you, which is why I think it’s nice when Roo asks for a specific dish…OR when one of your friends has the idea of posting a monthly menu for others to try!
