    Call for Recipes: Homemade Mac & Cheese

    Today it’s all about what I want, and I want a good Mac & Cheese recipe! Homemade, with real cheese. You know, the GOOD kind. If you have such a recipe, please share!


    This little bowl of Mac & Cheese was from Rock Bottom…it’s actually Mac & Chicken. It was very good, but I think we can do better. Bring it on, folks!

    Book Club: Time to Host!

    Last week I hosted Book Club…it was bittersweet as it’s most likely the last time I will do so (Nate will be done with his PhD very soon). I will miss my book club dearly when we move. The book I chose was “Lisey’s Story” by Stephen King. It wasn’t the biggest hit, but made for good conversation. If you like creepy, weird, Stephen Kingish stories, then you’ll like it. 🙂 I think I liked it best of everyone in the group…which is no surprise considering I’ve always liked being scared, even as a kid (remember Watcher in the Woods? I LOVED that stuff).


    I promised last week I would share my menu, so here goes (click on the names of each item to link to recipes). For appetizers I made BOBs. They were perfect – I can eat a whole tray of those puppies.


    For main course I made Oriental Chicken Salad, Orange Bowknots and some fresh fruit. A nice light meal, but still filling.



    5 of our 6 book club members are Libras – birthdays all within about 2 weeks of each other! So, this was also our annual birthday book club. Karen (the only non-Libra of the bunch – poor girl, having to put up with all of us!) always brings us a delicious dessert, and this year was no exception. She made Pumpkin Coffee Cake, which was moist and had the perfect amount of pumpkin in it – not too much, not too little. A great dessert for a fall evening. Thanks, Karen!
