Mac and Cheese


I have a serious problem with Mac and Cheese recipes. I’m always on the hunt for new pasta recipes in general. I do have a few pasta recipes I make on a normal basis, but I’m not sure what happens when I find a new one. It’s like the one I have isn’t enough. My hands get sweaty, my eyes light up, my heart beats faster and I just have to try the cheesy starchy yum-ness. Ok, that’s a total exaggeration.  Or is it!?!?!? 😛

Seriously now….

So…my husband has a serious issue. I’m talking about stuff now. About 6 months ago he ran into a deal where he was able to get two boats for free. He decided the boats weren’t fixable, but he wanted to keep the trailers because they are of value. He originally was going to make himself a trailer, but then he started getting offers he couldn’t pass up. One of the offers was a smoker. This guy he worked with a few years back makes these really cool smokers. I’m pretty excited to get it. I’ll be able to post a bunch of my smoker recipes. I haven’t been able to yet, because our smoker had broken. I really didn’t think I’d get another one, because we didn’t want to buy another one. Then suddenly this popped into our lap for a trade! YAY! We can’t wait! I like to make a bunch of stuff in the smoker and freeze it for later. It really makes it easy to have quick meals when you’re in need!
