On the way home we stopped for pizza and a beer. We dropped off Ryan and his dog, Dragon, was very happy to see him. But not quite as happy as my goofy dogs were to see us!!! Holy cow, you would have thought that we had been gone a year. There is nothing better for one's self esteem than a pet. Their love is truly unconditional and unending. Especially when you are standing at the "cookie" jar. LOL

My sister bought me a surprise and gave it to me when we were dropping Ryan off. I thought it was very apropros for today. It reminds me to Thrive at Home, I will be linking up to share it on Thursday.
Today is Meatless Monday so we are having Macaroni and Cheese for dinner tonight. Frank loves my Mac and Cheese so we have it quite often.
Macaroni and Cheese
1 14 oz. box of macaroni, cooked per directions on box
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1/2 c. half and half
2 T. butter cut into 8 pieces
salt and pepper
Mix cooked Macaroni with Cheese, half and half and
salt and pepper to taste in a buttered casserole.
Place butter pieces on top and sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 350* for 30 min.
This creates a dry Mac and Cheese which is what my family prefers.
You can add more cream for a creamier version. Print Recipe
