Dressing Up Boxed Mac And Cheese

My wife got a seasonal job over the summer months and, as a result, she was gone as much as I was during the day. Because of this, we found ourselves trying to be more creative about dinner; both because we didn't have as much time to prepare the meals and because neither of us really wants to do a whole lot of cooking after working an 8 hour day.

Our entrees arrived as we were finishing the last bites of brie. David's macaroni had a sharp flavor from the Guinness and Irish cheddar cheese. Unfortunately, perhaps because of the Guinness, the sauce was runny and almost seemed soupy instead of the more traditional gooey best slow cooker mac and cheese recipes. He still enjoyed it, but it left something to be desired.

Downsizing. We gave up the mansion -- well the 2,300 square feet was bigger than we needed anyway -- and moved into a charming, cozy 625-square-foot home. While our house is obviously on the extrememe side of things, I do think one of the biggest environmental problems we see is that people are living in homes two or three times the size of what they need. One kid doesn't warrant a four bedroom home, the same way that two kids doesn't macaroni cheese grill you need and SUV.

Insoluble fiber is the technical term for what my Mom always referred to as "roughage". You know.. the stuff that makes food move through your body more easily. Insoluble fiber has received a lot of publicity in recent years because of the link to a high fiber diet and macaroni cheese lowered risk of several types of cancer.

I use to believe the only way we could experience our true character was to either to believe we were going to die or to metaphorically die by separating ourselves from everything but the very basic necessities. I now know true character does not reveal it's self until you're facing off with a two year old. What is everyone's business and responsibility is the safety slow cooker mac and cheese wellbeing of all children. That goes double for family members.

Considering that our food stamps will drop by about $100 next month, it occurs to me that I will be unable to stick to my current meal plan. The following is my advice to anyone living on food stamps who is interested in getting the most of them each month.

Despite the sacrifices, I was able to successfully stretch our food stamp budget to allow for 3 daily meals, and even had a little bit left over at the end of the month.

Halls cough drops -- bonus 40-count bags on sale for 98 cents each. Buy three and use the $2 off 3 Trident or Halls coupon from the August 8 Sunday paper to get all three for 94 cents. You can also use this coupon to score 3 free bags at Walgreens beginning Sunday.

Well, the answer would have to be cyanide! I say that because the main thing I love about being in the food world is the staggering variety of delicious food there is out there to try. I want to eat everything! I don't know if I could live without that variety! But.... If I could have a nice ripe tomato from my garden, along with some fresh mozzarella and olive oil, that would have to be my choice.
