Wednesday:) What’s Cookin’, Miss Toni?Spicy Mac and Cheese.

Today was a freezing feeling kinda lazy day. I checked my fully-packed freezer to see what I could make for dinner. I have SO MUCH food in the fridge, freezer, cupboards and pantry. I found a large container of nacho cheese in the freezer and a pound of pork sausage. Hmm? What can I make? Ah, Mac and cheese. There’s always lots of pasta in the pantry. Great comfort food on a chilly day.

3 packages of twirls, sausage, an onion and lots of garlic powder. (I showed the can of cheddar cheese here, but I had already put in the spicy nacho cheese in the pasta.)

I have some friends who don’t like tomatoes, so I made a separate batch of pasta for me with diced tomatoes.

If you’re lookin’ for a recipe, you’re lookin’ in the wrong place. I don’t do recipes.

Yum! Yum! SO GOOD! Cheers, my friends.

Wednesday:) What’s Cookin’ Miss Toni

“When the weather is cold and gloomy, warm up your home and spirits with fun baking and warm comfort food.”

It’s been sooooo cold these past few days, so I’ve been baking and cooking up a storm. Many a pan of brownies have been prepared and shared. Ah, and the house always smells divine.

The other day, I made a big pan of roasted vegetables. There was enough for a LOT of meals. I ate some just alone, and a couple of times I sprinkled with shredded cheddar cheese and put in the broiler till it got toasty and melty.. Yum. Then, I added some to a can of cream of chicken soup. More yum.

I also had a couple dozen eggs in the fridge, so I boiled about 15 eggs and made a big bowl of egg salad. My secret is, I use a package of softened cream cheese combined with mayo. The best part, I also sauté and caramelize a large onion and add to the mixture. Ooooh! So good.

Warm soup and egg salad on a tortilla with spinach and/or tomato and avocado.

Good food and a warm heart. Life is good.

Well, that’s going to be a long wait, even here in north Texas.
