Thanksgiving Project – Why Didn’t I think of that?
Today has been a totally relaxing day for me. I stumbled from bed to breakfast, then to my recliner. I read for a bit, then started tackling some of the work I brought home this weekend that I didn’t finish yesterday.
I’m about ready to finally crawl back in my recliner and read some more. At the rate I’m going, I will never finish Charles Yallowitz’ Book 2 in Legends of Windemere series, Prodigy of Rainbow Tower. It is really good and I want to read. I need to find out what is going to happen with Nyx and Luke. Oh, and you should check Charles’ blog out here
But I put something new (to me) in my crock pot today. I found a recipe but it can only cook for 4 hours so that is difficult for me on a work day. But I put Mac ‘n Cheese in – it was pretty tasty. Warren really liked it and he is hard to please. Plus it is a cool fall day so it was perfect comfort food.
But what I’m most thankful for today is whoever invented those crock pot liner bags. Those things are just incredible. I hate spending the money, but I always am glad I do. No clean up. No mess. They are a godsend to those of us who hate scrubbing the inside of a crock pot or just don’t have the time to deal with it. Thank you whoever invented those. They are the best!
Oh, and if you are interested in the recipe – it was super easy (again, remember I don’t like to cook so it has to be easy).
2 cups skim milk
1 can evaporated milk (I used the fat free variety)
salt and pepper
Whisk together and add 2 cups of already shredded cheese and 2 cups of dry macaroni noodles. Cook on low for no more than 4 hours in a well-greased (yes, even in the liner bag) crock pot.
See? Told you it was super easy. I think next time, I will add just a touch more cheese and double the recipe so I can have more leftovers. Although this will make two meals for us. Enjoy
