I’ve been craving mac ‘n cheese. I decided to use Annie’s classic as the basis for our dinner tonight – mac n’ cheese with chicken & veggies.
I chopped up veggies to mix in – 1 onion, 1/2 a red bell pepper & cherry tomatoes from our cousin’s garden. She gave us a baggie last night, so I wanted to use them in our dinner tonight. They were so good! I usually don’t like tomatoes by themselves, but I sneaked a taste of these while I was chopping – they were a little sweet.
While I was chopping up the veggies, Pat worked on the chicken.
I cooked the chicken and veggies in one pan, with onion powder and pepper.
And had the mac n’ cheese going at the same time:
And then mixed them all together for the final product.
Pat dressed his up with extra pepper and wing sauce. To each his own!
It was pretty good – definitely cheesey! For dessert I made another dark cherry shake. I didn’t think this recipe was as good as my first, but it was still pretty good – served in a pretty wine glass:
Into the blender:
- 4 oz light vanilla soymilk
- 4 oz water
- 1 packet diet hot chocolate
- 1/2 tbsp chocolate chips
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla syrup
- 1/2 tbsp instant decaf coffee
