Wednesday is over – that means we’re one day closer to the weekend :)
Since I only ended up eating half of my soup, I went looking for a snack in the vending machine this afternoon.
I actually found a pretty good snack!
Nestled in among the Hot Fries and Snickers were these 100 calorie packs of chocolate covered cranberries!
I was very surprised to see this in there – I didn’t even know Nestle made raisinets with cranberries. It was a good little snack to hold me over until we got home.
I didn’t really plan on running today, but the weather was really nice so we went on a quick 3 mile run. We figured we better enjoy this weather while we have it!
I’ve been looking through some new magazines I got this week for meal ideas, including the new Cooking Light to look through/review. Thanks again Miranda!
I already have a lot of recipes tagged to make soon ;) Especially that one on the cover! It looks like the perfect fall meal.
Funny enough, my dinner tonight actually came out of last month’s Cooking Light!
I had tagged this Bacon Mac recipe when I first got this magazine last month from Miranda and have been waiting to make it since.
I love the new layout of the magazine – you still get the great recipes, but it’s so clean now and a bit easier to read.
I also love Cooking Light because every recipe I’ve tried has rocked.
This mac’n’cheese recipe was so creamy and cheesy, you would never know it didn’t have any butter or heavy cream.
The only changes I made were out of necessity:
- I used 3 different shapes of whole wheat pasta to make up the 12 oz it called for.
- I used 1 cup of fat free evaporated milk + 1/2 cup water (instead of 1.5 cups skim) since I was out of regular skim. It worked perfect!
Nick went back for seconds, so I’d call that a success! I’m also happy we have leftovers ;)
I’ve got some fun stuff, like fold laundry…better get to it!
What’s your favorite mac’n’cheese? Velveeta? Kraft? Homemade?
No judgment here ;) I’ve made plenty of boxed macaroni. In fact, a few summers when we were home, I remember making velveeta shells and cheese for me and my little sister almost everyday for lunch!
