The mac and cheese recipe, I added pepper, a dash of nutmeg, two eggs and chopped salami (if I don't add salami, I add ham) In my usual recipe, it would have these plus things I don't need, like white flour and butter for the white sauce. So this recipe is healthier than mine. I am generally leery of short-cut recipes because they are often less healthy, I don't use ones that contain soup mixes or ketchup or mayo or any sugar. And like you, I like the second-day pan-fried and crisped mac and cheese (also love second day lasagna, polenta and risotto this way as well)
Thanks for a short-cut recipe that is healthier than the one I usually use!!
Oh how nice to see your face on my page! Funny because my comment below was last spring working in my garden and I just came in from doing fall clean up. How is your cholesterol doing? My doctor has me on meds too. I think I do my share of keeping my healthy and he is doing his. It's a team effort. 412 days ago
Thank you for the flowers! I just came in from raking my back yard, collecting twigs.. and noticing a few things beginning to come up like the rhubarb and daffodils. There is still a lot of ice and snow here but it is glorious out today. And that is my cue... I always have better luck with healthy eating when I am outdoors every day. Oh... just remembering where I was last June I am getting excited. My knee injury July 1st set me back 15 pounds and a lot of bad habits. Last night... well, I won't go there. Suffice it to say I am on track this afternoon and feeling optomistic. You have a good year too. Let me know if there is anything you need for support. We are such a quiet team now but I was approached to lead a start up team and they said the committment was only 3 months. I guess when you think about it the start up team is just a welcome stop and then members are off to find like minded people. But I have enjoyed our coffee shop posts. Cheers! Justyna 601 days ago
