Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Hey everyone,

I wanted to share with you a recipe I made for Thanksgiving dinner.

It’s not healthy, but I figured they would be a good recipe to have next time you have a get together to attend (especially over Christmas).

Here’s the ingredients I used:

  • 16 ounce box of macaroni noodles
  • Cheese sauce
  • 16 ounce bag of shredded cheese
  • Microwaveable pasta boiler (If you want to boil a pot of water that’s fine)
  • Crockpot
  • Serving spoon

Here’s how I cooked the food:

I opened the box of noodles and put them in the microwaveable pasta boiler.

I filled the container up to the proper water line (so I had the right amount of water in there).

I put the container with water and noodles in the microwave for 27 minutes. (I didn’t put the lid on there).

I put the lid on the container and drained the water out of the pasta.

 

Once the noodles were cooked, I put them in the crockpot and added cheese sauce.

I added the bag of cheese to the mixture.

I mixed it all together.

I set the crockpot on low for 2 hours (I checked it periodically).

Here’s how it looked:

This is a great dish to take for get togethers.

Please let me know what you think of this dish and how it turned out for you (if you tried it).

Thank You and Have A Great Day,

Homemade Vegetable Soup Recipe

Hey everyone,

Last week, I had 7.5 pounds worth of potatoes that were about to be rotten.

I decided to cut them up and put them in two crock pots worth of vegetable soup I was planning on making.

Here’s what I used to make the vegetable soup:

2 crockpots

-7.5 pounds worth of potatoes

-Two 48 ounce cans of Spaghetti Sauce

-One 16 ounce bag of frozen mixed vegetables

-One 16 ounce can of black beans

-Once 16 ounce can of spinach

-Teaspoon of chili powder; garlic powder; onion powder; red pepper flakes; and italian seasoning

-Water (Each crockpot got a 48 ounce Spaghetti Sauce can worth)

Here’s how I made the soup:

  • I chopped up all of the potatoes into bite size chunks. 
  • I distributed the bite size chunks into two even piles and put the piles into each crockpot.
  • I put half of the bag of frozen mixed vegetables into each crockpot.
  • I put half of the can of black beans into each crockpot.
  • I put half of the can of spinach into each crockpot.
  • I put a teaspoon of each seasoning into each crockpot
  • I poured in a 48 ounce can of spaghetti sauce into each crockpot
  • I took a 48 ounce spaghetti sauce can and poured water into it twice (one for each crockpot) and dumped it into each crockpot.
  • I put each crockpot on high for 4 hours.
  • Once the potatoes were tender, I put each crockpot on low for an hour.

Here are pictures of how the soup looked:

My overall opinion?

I liked the soup. It was healthy and tasty. I would do this recipe again. I might try to put pasta or rice in the soup (next time), instead of potatoes (or cut back on the potatoes I put in).

Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how I can make this soup better (or what our opinion is on the recipe if you tried it).

Thank You and Have A Great Day,
