When the hubs works a lot, I cook more.
I have been making a lot of my tried and true dishes that I have posted here in the past,
but I did try a few new recipes that I'll share with you today.
Swedish Meatballs with Noodles
I found this recipe on Facebook and it is also on Pinterest here.
This was good, I thought it was a little bland but the hubs loved it.
Here's another one I found on Facebook...
Pretzel Crusted Chicken Fingers
with honey mustard dipping sauce.
I served them with roasted new and red potatoes and a salad.
A video for making the chicken fingers can be found here.
One last good one was a...
Homemade Mac and Cheese
I printed out the recipe and I can't remember where I found it.
2 cups uncooked macaroni
1 can (10 ounces) cheddar cheese soup
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup sour crean
1/4 cup cubed butter
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded fontina cheese
1 cup shredded provolone cheese
Have you read about this trick...
a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling water and it won't spill over, it works.
Using the same pot to cook the pasta and make the creamy cheese sauce,
made clean up a breeze for this one.
I made this for my great nieces, I was babysitting and I wanted to bring dinner with me.
I also brought caesar salad, they didn't touch that but the Mac and Cheese was a big hit!
My niece Dean-na and hubby Anthony had a date night.
I try to gift this to them every so often, but I don't do it often enough!!
