Yesterday, the kids made some 4th of July artwork. ;) The above is Kassidy's..
This is Kali Rose's. The brown thing is where they have the paint.. as you can see, she painted herself red & blue in honor of our country's birthday ;)
Kade's is all about the fireworks. :)
My artwork... they are much better than me ;)
I hope everyone has a great 4th!! We are not doing anything special.. Just spending time together, playing with the kids, and eating ;). My mother is coming over in the evening and we all can't wait to see her!!
The girls and I decided to go ahead and prepare the food yesterday (for today) so we wouldn't be in the kitchen all day today :).
They were completely in charge of the mac and cheese.. I just observed.
Ha! I caught her!! Who can resist that big bag of cheese anyway?? ;)
spraying the Pam ^
All done! They did a great job!
Here is the recipe (believe me, it is goood):
Macaroni N' Cheese:
2 cups (16 ounces) small curd cottage cheese
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 teaspoon salt
Garlic salt and pepper to taste
3 cups (12 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 package (7 ounces) elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
In a large bowl, combine the cottage cheese, sour cream, egg, salt, garlic salt and pepper. Add cheddar cheese; mix well. Add macaroni and stir until coated.
Transfer to a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish. Spread the remaining 1 cup of cheese evenly on top. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with paprika if desired. Yield: 8-10 servings.
Next up, the cheesecake :)
What are you eating today??
