Tyia and I prepared the veggies for the most wonderful summer salad. It comes from The Pioneer Woman Cookbook. It is SO good. It isn't hard to make....so we made.
8 Ears of corn husked,
Summer squash (I used yellow squash and zucchini)
Red Onion, quartered
This is the result.
You just want to dive into the bowl.
You want to share it with everyone you know.
Then, I prepared the "made from scratch" macaroni and cheese. Yes, from scratch. It is another recipe from the same cookbook. Although, now that I have made it, I think I would alter the recipe a bit. Something like: bottled mustard is just as good as dry mustard. I say that, because that is what I did. I didn't have any dry mustard. Oh, and I think cream, or half and half would help a little. But, I used the milk that the recipe said to use. But after it was done, I just wished it was creamier. But, that makes it really fattening. So, on second thought, milk is just fine.
You just follow the recipe. Make the butter melt, add the flour, then the milk (yes, milk, even though I wish it was cream) :)
I was going to feed 5 of us, and ended up feeding 11,
and still have some left.
I shared it with all my neighbors.
Even my neighbor Norman and his wife Connie.
They made the mistake of giving me the code to their garage,
so I did a little breaking and entering.
I wrote a note on a paper towel and left it on their counter.
I hid the food in the fridge, on top of the eggs.
They cook out on the grill, too.
Makes your mouth water doesn't it?
If you mouth isn't watering, well, that means you just ate and you are full.
