Mac & Cheese is a grownup food

Hello! Today, I would like to share a recipe I got in my wedding cookbook. This is Mac & Cheese from Nancy Wolfrum…

I cooked it in my crockpot, but she says to bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
4 cups cooked macaroni
3 lg eggs-beaten
1.5 sticks soft butter (I used 1 stick)
2 (12 oz) cans evaporated milk
1.5 lb sharp shredded cheese (I used 1 lb)
2 tsp salt (I didn’t because the butter and cheese are salty) πŸ™‚

Add butter to your drained macaroni. Mix eggs, evap milk, cheese, and salt. Mix everything together & pour in your 13 x 9 casserole dish or crockpot. Sprinkle with more cheese. I added a can of shredded, dried corned beef to the mix (another reason I didn’t salt this). Mmm. For a girl who usually only likes Kraft, this sure was GREAT. We had a TON of leftovers which we’ve been eating like crazy. SO…here’s another “recipe.” We don’t really like eating leftovers, but it’s cheap, we don’t want to waste food, and it’s easier to make a large batch than a two-person batch. πŸ™‚ This was a great fix because it made it seem like we were eating a different meal. Using a spatula, cut out a little patty-size chunk of the cold mac & cheese (after you’ve refrigerated–is that a word?– it from yesterday’s meal) and place it in a frying pan with no butter or oil or anything. Fry it up and sprinkle a little cheese on top. Flip after a few minutes and it should be lightly browned. Add a little more cheese to that side. Flip after a little while. We bought some everything french bread from Walmart off the marked down rack. I warmed some slices of that while I was frying up the mac & cheese patties. Then, Β just put the patties on the bread and eat like pizza! SO good!

On another note, D is growing like a weed! I have never seen a baby this long! She’s skinny and 30 inches at 5 months. πŸ™‚ She never ceases to amaze us. We’ve been learning sign language for the past few weeks and she has been soaking it up. Her first sign was “Daddy” and of course, daddy melts when she says it. Now, she can sign “Daddy”, “Mommy”, “Dog”, “Eat”, and “Fish.” She just learned fish yesterday and she learned it in one day! Lately, I have been showing her how to “walk” around and how to “crawl-walk” on her knees. She loves it and stares at her feet as we walk. She has always hated tummy-time, so we don’t do that a whole lot, but we’ve discovered rolly-time instead! I just help her roll over and over and over and she loves that! She’s incredibly strong and smart and happy. She is a great little person and we love her to death. πŸ™‚
