I enjoy Sunday mornings. Really, I do. It’s Sunday nights that I hate. The thought of going to work after a relaxing weekend, the weekly routines, the coming home exhausted and then making dinner…bleh! But, a Sunday morning is wonderful.
This morning the husband and I slept in! It was so nice. We went to our friend James’ birthday party last night. Just a small get together. It was funny. A lot of his friends are so hilarious. My cheeks hurt from laughing by the end of the night!
Here are the Thursday and Friday night meals I needed to catch up on!
Thursday night was Creamy Mac n Cheese with a Seven Layer Salad.
It looked so good and we were so hungry. Wrong! It was AWFUL! By far the worst meal I’ve made from this cookbook. OMIT THE DIJON MUSTARD!
I would recommend this meal, if it did not include dijon mustard! I was skeptical myself, but I put the two teaspoons in like it asked. It was terrible. I was so sad about it. The husband tried to appease my feelings by eating more than one bite, but was pretty relieved when I threw in the towel on this meal. We just ended up eating the Seven Layer Salad instead.
Here is the recipe for if some reason you like a lot of dijon mustard taste:
If I ever want to make this again (still having bad thoughts) I will definitely nix the crazy ingredients and just make the mac n cheese. But hey, you may like it!
Friday night the in laws came over and I made:
along with fancy french cut green beans with a mixture of mayo, mustard, lemon juice, celery salt… you’ll have to look it up in the cookbook beside the recipe!
It was a little spicy, but so good. I love love love Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. If your recipe calls for hot sauce, you must use this!
Frank’s Red Hot I used the original.
And then we made homemade icecream. A simple recipe that our friends James and Shelby gave us:
one can sweetened condensed milk
one half gallon chocolate milk (I used reduced fat)
one tub of Cool Whip
It tastes just like a frosty from Wendy’s! Soooo good.
Then last night we ate some pizza and went to our friends party. Overall, it’s been a good weekend. The husband and I are just lounging around and then going somewhere to eat.
I ate this just a few minutes ago for a snack:
These tasted like Honey Grahams. Oh. My. Word. I see myself using these for dips in the near future! And of course, a little glass of chocolate milk! I’m going to read some more. I am finally on the forth book of the Twilight Series (man, those chapters are long) and then get ready for dinner! 🙂
