I’m not sure if I should even post that last pic—I don’t know how to make it pretty. But I really really want to share the recipe because it’s so good, and it’s straight out of my childhood (but then again not at all). Growing up, we often had Red Macaroni and Cheese… which was just a can of Campbell’s tomato soup mixed with melted cheddar and mixed with elbows… I can’t eat that exact recipe anymore (I might die!), so I made a crockpot version with tetra pack tomato soup (no BPA… did you know you should never eat tomatoes out of a can?). I also used Kelp noodles…which are sort of weird and crunchy, unless you soften them in hot liquid (which the crockpot is perfect for). Anyway, I’ll try this again, make it prettier, and share the exact recipe. I know there are other people out there who have had Red Macaroni and Cheese!
Tomorrow I’m going to be pretty busy working, but I’ll definitely fit in yoga class (because it makes me happy) and a walk (because I’ll be damned if I waste the good weather…and it’s great for procrastination…). I also have another gelatin recipe to share, so I’ll try to write up some good info about why I’m using it too.
Oh, and dinner with the cousin and her man was fun last night—it was maybe the first time I’ve actually kept my skosh of wine to just a skosh (our family joke mentions something about “the bottomless skosh”). I can’t wait till I can share more info about what K is working on—she pitches and sells shows to networks and is a producer, and they are deep in casting for two shows (with two more in the wings).
Happy #WineFriday! Cheers to wine and you and fruit snacks!
