Every day favorites

Carson while preparing the macaroni and cheese...Andrew called him my "girly-man" and I like to think of him as my helpful man who on this particular day was still in his jammies at lunch...I think I was too!

When Andrew was little he has great memories of going to grandmas. She is a great cook and at the time his favorite thing was her homemade macaroni and cheese. I have been searching for a good recipe because I have tried many and we have been disappointed. This recipe is compliments of Alyssa. Andrew enjoyed it and I liked it because I had all the ingredients one hand, it was easy and it tasted good too. It's a triple threat!

Macaroni & Cheese
2 c. uncooked elbow macaroni
1/4 c. butter + 1/2 tbs.

Recipe #2
I thought these two recipes kind of went together because they are both something kids enjoy. This one is for play dough. Whenever I buy some it dries out super quick so I make fresh play dough every so often. It is super easy and I think it is softer than the store bought kind. Your kids will think you are sooo cool-j/k
