My stay-cation starts today. I took the rest of this week off of work to just hang out, go to the beach, and enjoy the (hopefully) nice weather.
If I'm not too busy soaking up the sun rays this week, I'm hoping to have a lot of quality time to blog. :)
What does it take for a meal to be complete?
Obviously opinions vary, but for me, I need meat(or meat substitute), a carbohydrate, a veggie, and cheese certainly doesn't hurt.
If this sounds like your recipe for a perfect meal, then boy, do I have a treat for you!
Let me introduce you to the best meal my brain has ever cooked up:
Mac & Cheese & Sausage (!!!) & Peas! (please excuse the not so great photo quality, my fancy camera was dead)
a depressed feeling may occur when your bowl (or plate) is empty
A few weeks ago my Mom's coworker made a request for a Mac&Cheese&Peas recipe because I didn't have one anywhere on the blog! I was like "oh yea, I should probably make one since it's the NAME OF THE BLOG." So, here it is!
1 box Annie's Shells and Real Aged Cheddar
3 Hot Italian Sausages
1 Cup Green Peas
1/4 cup milk
Boil water for the shells.
While waiting for the water to boil, prepare the sausage.
Cut a slit down the sausage to remove the casing. Break the sausage up in a skillet and cook until heated all the way through, and no longer brown.
Transfer cooked sausage to a paper towel to drain off some of the fat.
When the water is boiling, dump in the shells, after about 5 minutes, dump in the peas.
Bring to a boil again and cook for about 5-7 more minutes, then drain.
Follow directions on package to make cheese sauce
Add shells and peas back into pan, and mix with the cheese sauce.
When it's completely mixed together, add in the cooked sausage.
I'm obsessed with the way the peas nestle in the shells. <3
Today is my very dear friend Meaghan's Birthday, so I wanted to say:
Happy Birthday, Meaghan! I love you!
