Mac and cheese out of the box has never been one of my favorites. In leaner days, it was a fast (before microwaves) and cheap meal. But, the cheese flavor was just lacking.
The best macaroni and cheese I have ever had was the other day at Dinosaur BBQ in Rochester. Wow, was that good.
Today, I decided to make some from scratch. Note to self: Next time, more sauce and cracked pepper.
Mine turned out okay, but it wasn’t like what I had at Dinosaur BBQ. I’ll have to keep trying until I get that right texture and taste.
What else did I feed the missionaries today?
Well, I took all the leftover spinach, mixed it together, added a bit of frozen peas that were in a bag in the freezer, added 1/2 a chopped onion, and about 1/3 cup of sour cream. I mixed that all together and baked it in the oven at 390F for about 40 minutes. Elizabethe really liked it and suggested next time I add the whole onion.
The main entre was some BBQ meatballs. That was easy. Just add some precooked meatballs, some BBQ sauce, some chopped onion and bell peppers, and then simmer until the sauce is thick and coats the meatballs.
Amber has been texting me all evening. She’s excited about their trip here. They will be here next Saturday.
