It was taco salad here. I got some really nice fresh ground lean beef from the butcher yesterday and didn't want to make burgers as TB had them for lunch at work yesterday (they "tailgated" at the bus yard for the drivers who were working and couldn't be home for the Superbowl).

Our salad had beef and onion seasoned with my own mix, avacado, fresh salsa, green onion, cheese (TB had his special cheese, I had goat cheese) on a bed of spring mix.

It was YUM!

i just made my first ever mac-n-cheese from scratch (barilla pipettes, milk, velveeta, and gruyere) to go with my leftover bbq ribs and chicken to have at work.

i have to say that it came out fantastic! shamefully, i've only made mac-n-cheese from a box. but this stuff was great. the little, slightly curled pipettes lend themselves to holding a good amount of cheese.

Yay, Bucky T: next you'll be making baked mac and cheese like a pro (no velveeta though! )

Congrats Bucky!!

Try using small shells next time. They hold lots of cheesy goodness. LOL

Stirling seems to be coming down with something, so I made onion soup using chicken broth (Jewish penicillin, almost). It came out really good. The V-slicer worked great for uniform, thin slices of onion. I think I put too much toasted bread. It soaked up a lot of the soup.

We had Pizza Hut pizza. Meat-lovers with extra cheese for James; pepperoni, mushroom, black olive, tomatoes, and extra cheese for me. I also had some hot wings with blue cheese dressing.

I have a pot roast in the crock pot. Cooked with a bottle of chili sauce, a envelope of lipton onion and some red wine. The smell reminds of a meatloaf with the tomato sauce. I'll make a french potato salad which uses a vinegrette dressing and has some blanched green beans added to it. It gives the potato salad a nice crunch.
