Happy Tuesday!! I’ve been wanting to share these photos for a long time and I’m finally getting around to it! I have to be honest, seeing these photos taken in my old kitchen literally brings tears to my eyes. We miss it so much!!! But our new home is well under-way and we are excited about it!
One question I get asked a lot is what my kids like to eat and what meals I like to fix them. Honestly, both Isla and Jackson are great eaters!! They both love eggs, spaghetti, and especially this homemade Mac & Cheese recipe that I make them at least once a week (I made them boxed Mac & Cheese once and they hated it because they were so used to this recipe!). I love it because it’s super easy, it’s a healthier option compared to boxed Max & Cheese and it’s a hit with adults too!
Mini Bowtie Noodles (these are Isla’s favorite!!!)
A little less than half a cube of Land of Lakes Salted Butter
Cache Valley Colby Jack Cheese (this is my favorite brand – the more the better!!!)
A dash of salt
1/3 – 1/2 cup of Skim Milk (depending on how runny you like your Mac & Cheese)
Boil the noodles then strain and put back in pot. Add butter and 3 handfuls of cheese (or however much you want!). Add milk. Stir together and add a dash of salt. Serve and enjoy! We sometimes like to add grilled chicken, too!
What are some of your kids’ favorite meals? I love to try out new recipes so leave your favorites in the comments below! And don’t forget I’ll be doing my weekly Q&A in tomorrow’s Inspiration Wednesday post. So any questions you have, ask me in the comments and I’ll choose a few to answer!
