Delectable Dinners!

Standard

Hello again, my lovelies.

This afternoon I thought I would share some of the delicious dinners that the BF and I made last week in our sweet, little city apartment.  🙂

First up:  The Pioneer Woman’s Mac and Cheese

Okay, so as food blog freaks and Food Network addicts might know, the Pioneer Woman recently got her own show!  I have been a massive fan of her site for the past…4 or so years, and I, for one, truly believe that her positive attitude and passion for butter were in need of another media platform.

To move along with this story, Tom and I were watching her show and had the image of her making some amazingly delicious looking Mac and Cheese burned into our heads.  Friday night we were invited to a dinner party with some fresh new law school people and decided that this was the time to make the full, behemoth recipe!

Fair warning: a group of 3 women and 5 young men barely put a dent in this massive amount of dinner delight.  I would HIGHLY advise halving the recipe if you are only trying to feed a small (or normal size) family or are not a fan of having a few days worth of leftovers.  As previously discussed, I love leftovers, so we are all good here!

My one and only change/suggestion would be to skip putting it in the oven.   You should have seen the ooey-gooeyness of this mac and cheese before the oven!!! While it was still tasty, I am pretty sure skipping the baking is the way to go.

Anyways, check this stuff out:

Now go make it!

NEXT: Thai Peanut Chicken with Rice Noodles

This is a favorite of Tom and mine.  Usually Tom makes the dish with coconut rice (OMG SO GOOD) rather than rice noodles, but alas we have neither rice cooker nor pot with lid, so we had to change it up.   We were really happy with how this turned out, and again, wound up with a BUNCH of leftovers.  I highly recommend trying out this recipe.  It is pretty cheap to make (although you do have to invest in a few more exotic ingredients), has VEGGIES, and could easily be made cheaper/vegetarian with some tofu instead of chicken.

Mmmmmmmmmm (and yes, that is a strawberry-kiwi mojito in the background….recipe to come if we ever get it just right…).

Well that is all for now!  xoxo ❤
