{Mac 'n' Cheese}

Some days are just tough. No matter how positive, proactive, and determined you might be. For example, after a night of panic attacks and bad dreams (me) and a morning of tummy troubles and tantrums (the boys)'s just not a day that anyone would plan. So I thought I would keep it simple and just share the recipe for my favorite comfort food. It's a huge treat, but some days are just huge treat days. We make it gf with this pasta and it works great. Recipe at the bottom, let me know if you try it! Back to my lemon balm tea... 

{Oven Mac 'N' Cheese}

1lb uncooked elbow noodles 
1lb cheese, grated (I used half cheddar half jack here) 
1qt whole milk
salt and pepper to taste

In a 13"x9" baking pan, combine your uncooked pasta and shredded cheese. Just mix it around with your hands so it's fairly well balanced. Salt and pepper over the top. Pour milk over, sometimes a little bit more is needed, you want to cover nearly all of the pasta. I smush it down a little bit and don't mind if some of it is about half out of the milk, you just don't want any whole noodles above the milk level. Add a dash of paprika on the top if you want to impress your five year old. Bake at 350* for and hour.

  1. I can't eat regular pasta so am very interested to try pasta made from brown rice. I've seen quinoa pasta too that looks promising. My husband loves mac and cheese so I will have to prepare this for him.

  2. <3 Oh boy, your day/night sounds like ours today. Phew!! I hope it's going better now. XOXO
