I have my favorite blogs I read everyday...some of them don't have anything to do with scrapbooking, believe it or not!  So one morning I came across this recipe,, and thought I would give it a try.  Paul is pretty picky about his mac & cheese, doesn't really like too many of the "homemade" kind, if you know what I mean.   Sooo, I tried it and it is a "keeper."  A "keeper" in our house refers to new recipes that we love, so I thought I would share.  I substituted twists for the elbow macaroni and I also added some chicken that I browned in olive and a little white truffle oil.  Maybe it will be your next "keeper!"

Pictures didn't turn out that great, but I actually had my fork in my hand when I remembered I wanted to take a picture, you know, just in case!  Now stop reading, run, don't walk, to the market to get all the fixins'.

It's been so long, maybe I should introduce myself!

When I first started this blog I was so darn excited, I knew I had enough stuff to update everyday.  Well, I probably do have enough stuff to post, I just have been running out of time to post.  When I do have a moment, usually in the evening, I seem to think Big Brother or anything on Bravo takes priority.  Anyhow, over this past weekend, Paul and Brad participated in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk.  I am so proud of them...60 miles in three days...I'm not sure I could walk 6 miles in three days!  The training, raising $2,300 EACH, the blisters, it takes dedication.   This picture was taken at 5:30 AM before the opening ceremony on Friday, the first day of the walk.

The grandkids had a great time at one of the cheering sections on Saturday.  Here is a cutie patootie picture of Sophie, right before she bit another child.  Yep, that's right, can you believe anything this cute would actually bite?

Yep, this might have been the biting face!

And Jacob did an outstanding job of handing out candy as the walkers passed by.  I didn't think he would actually do it, but he stood there with another little girl handing out stickers, for quite a long time! I was just so proud of everyone!
