Well, I was not impressed. I've gotten wonderful recipes from this chef before, so this one was interesting.

2 # Macaroni
1 # Velveeta
5 oz Phili Cream Cheese
4 oz Heavy Cream
2 oz Asiago Cheese
1 oz sweet butter
Fresh ground pepper

Boil the pasta and take all the other ingredients put in a double boiler and stir occasionally until smooth. Pour over macaroni. Serve immediately.

There wasn't enough sauce for the amount of pasta. And the sauce tasted metallic and chemically, rather like the frozen stuff from Stouffers. I much prefer my own version - a baked Macaroni and Cheese, made with an old fashioned cheese sauce, with a real creamy cheddary taste. Mine is basically the Betty Crocker recipe.

Ended up cutting chicken into medallions and sauteing the meat along with all the leftover vegies to complete the meal. Now I need to go produce shopping tomorrow!

I made breakfast. Homemade pancakes for the border and I, and ones from a gluten-free mix for DH. I did sausages and hashbrowns too. I had a pancake and a sausage which for me lately is very good!
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

I'd spent all day making a type of chili. Then hubby got sick. So I told him an old favorite is called for .... Lipton's chicken noodle soup that I dump extra noodles in. YES. I hope like hell the doctor can help him because last night was miserable.

Kim's going to grill some chicken, and I think I'll fix potatoes boulangier from some Klondike gold potatoes and heat up a can of Roma green beans.
We get by with a little help from our friends
