So my sisters got in late.

So we did not cook for them last night which actually turned out PERFECT because it is such a beautiful day out today.   65 degrees and sunny almost perfect cookout weather.  My daddy did the grilling, my mother made dessert and I made the sides mixed vegetables and macaroni and cheese. I just so happened to have my camera handy so I took some pictures of my process; and I figured while I was at it I might as well post the recipe.  I’m nice like that.   So here goes, if you make it come back post a comment and tell me how you like it.


2 boxes Kraft Deluxe Macaroni and Cheese (the blue box)

1 stick of butter (not margarine I told you it was fattening)

1/2 cup of milk

2 cups Mozzerella cheese

2 cups Sharp cheddar cheese

3 eggs

Salt to taste

1.  Prepare the 2 boxes of macaroni according to the instructions on the box. Make sure the noodles are well done not Al`dente .

2. Pour into a large bowl; large enough to mix all the ingredients. If you are going to add salt do it now.

3. Mix all ingredients well.

4. Pour macaroni into large baking dish or casserole dish preferably one that has a lid if not just cover with aluminum foil

5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes

**Note** This recipe makes a large pan enough for at least eight hungry people if you don’t need quite that much try halving it up and freezing one half for later and bake the other for now.**

Oh Transition…

Ok this whole transition period I’m going through is driving me nuts. I’m here camped out at my parents house, my car is broken ( a minor accident my fault of course) I’m broke, and to top it all off I got fired lol. When life hands you lemons you what throw them at people, no I’m just kidding you make lemonade lol. Either way  I am in between jobs, it’s a first for me because I have worked since I was 16 sometimes two and even three jobs at a time, so I am used to working, having something to do. But I told myself that I would take some time for myself, I have been thinking about opening my own business something small selling my crafts and what not.  I have been trying to get my business off the ground for the last two years but between work and school I just never had enough time.  But now I am going to have money coming in every week for bills and a completely open calendar so I am gonna give it a go.  I have a lot of plans its just this little waiting period I have to go through till the money starts coming in is killing me.  I’m using my income taxes to get my car fixed which needs to be done unless I want to walk everywhere I go which on one hand would be good for the fitness part of my self-improvement journey.  My mom asked me what my goal was career wise and I told her flat-out, I don’t know that’s sad I’m 26 and I just don’t know. I know I want to own my own business but with me the problem lies with which business do I start with? I’m creative, I’m a darn good cook, I do graphic design I do crafts, I’m one step away from having my Real Estate license I mean really I have so many options and ideas it is super hard for me to concentrate and stay focused on one. But all that comes second to my real passion which is going to shock a couple of folks… wait for it…..wait for it….To beperfectly honest with you though I would be happy being a housewife raising my children barefoot and pregnant. Wow I feel like I just sent women back 50 years but in all honesty taking care of my family doing my crafts and running a household sounds pretty much perfect to me.  I have worked in some good jobs and I have definitely worked in some of the more crappy ones, and one thing remained the same in all of the places I worked. I was never appreciated, and no one genuinely cared about anything besides the money I was making for them.   I think with the amount of time I would spend away from home making someone else rich and I just think it is not worth it.  That time  could be going to my family which would appreciate and love me and so to me there is just no other option. But hey all this is in the future being so I do not have a husband yet and I do not have any children, it’s not my time yet but when it is I am going to be ready which is why I am going through my self improvement stage now so when god is ready to put that special someone in my life I will be ready for him.
