Today we were in need of some comfort. John Samuel wasn't feeling good and we missed our CBS class. Mckenzie wasn't happy that we had to miss. She had the cutest new outfit on and she was ready to go. I could tell she was upset that we had to miss class. I tried to talk her into knitting, or sewing or reading. Nothing worked...So she and I made some homemade Mac-n-Cheese to help bring a little bit of comfort. Nothing like gooey Mac-n-Cheese when your day doesn't go the way you thought it would. This is the best I've ever had. My mother-in-law agrees! The greatest thing about it is that it cooks in the crock pot. You've got to try it. You can get the recipe here.

While we're talking recipes look what I got in the mail!:
It's the new cookbook from Gooseberry Patch and one of my recipes is in it! How fun to see your name in print. It is a great cookbook....lots of really good homey foods. Nothing too frou-frou or over-the-top. Most of the ingredients you probably have on your pantry shelf. If you check it out, be sure to try the Scallped Potatoes and Ham!
(John Samuel was fine, by the way, he perked up as the day went on...of course if you ask him, he'll tell you he still doesn't feel well.)

That looks super yummy, I bet you all enjoyed it a treat. Hope John Samuel is much better now too.
And congrats on the printed recipe :)

Yum! have to make that recipe. what a loving and attentive mother you are. to know your children so well; trying to make them feel better; dropping what you may have had planned to do more for them.

You didn't tell me about the recipe! I'm sure we'll be seeing you in a knitting publication soon as well.

Would you like to send some of that macaroni and cheese to SC? YUMMY!

mac and cheese, a smile in every bite. i am convinced it is no coincidence that an elbow macaroni looks like a smile. come to think of it, upside down it looks like the sort of mood that john samuel and kenzie were in. but that is the beauty of perspective. if you walk around to the other side and look at that same elbow, your frown turns upside down. and by the way, it's overdue that your name turns up in cookbook print. you are definitely one of the best cooks i know! when is the book signing?!

we had a sick little one this week and i made comfort food, too. when my hubby gets sick or has a rough day, he almost always wants homemade mac-n-cheese for a cheer-up.

i hope your son is all recovered, and congrats on the recipe!
