It'll be mac and cheese tonight for dinner 3/23

Asked hubby what he felt like tonight for dinner and he gave the standard answer. "Whatever you want to make honey." Like that helps ?

"What about mac and cheese with a special super salad", I asked.
His reply was, "You mean the kind of macaroni and cheese that has that crispy topping baked on top of it?" I said, "Yes honey." He said, "Oh boy, that'd be wonderful, sounds great babe." So, mac and cheese, baked from scratch with lots of cheese and a super salad of all things available, garlic bread and w/w. Oh wait, I'm not on the plane, I meant to say white wine.

Sounds like a very nice dinner.

David's coming over so I'm making him beef stroganoff. It's one of his favorites.

I remember not long ago I asked for recipes for beef stroganoff. Gad, we love the stuff. May just be my favorite thing to cook. So warm and fuzzy on a cold night.

Don't know what we'll be having. Beef stroganoff sounds good, we like it but I've never made it from scratch before. I remember PA posted a recipe for a slow cooker strog. That sounds good. Maybe we'll have that tomorrow.

I have a pot roast cooking in the slow cooker. I'd put the meat, onions and seasoning in about 10am and put it on low. I like my meat tender and don't like it when the veggies are mushy so I usually always cook the meat 4 hours on low then add the veggies for another 4 on high. Well then I cleaned and cut up my carrots, celery and potatoes and put those in and went to crank up the heat on high and realized at somepoint the plug on the cooker wiggled its way out of the plug in. Anyway, I have no clue how long the meat had cooked for already as the broth was faintly warm. Oh well hopefully cranked up on high it'll get the meat tender enough by the time the veggies are tender. If not then I guess I'll be removing the veggies and letting the meat cook longer. Dinner that should of been at 6pm may turn into 8ish.
