#37 Avocado Mac and Cheese

This sounded interesting.  The avocado made it too fruity tasting for me.  I think perhaps more cheese is needed.  Definitely edible but not something I would try again.

#36 Stovetop Butternut Mac and Cheese


Here is another pinterest gem.  A stovetop mac is always nice because there are fewer dishes to deal with and it usually comes together quick and easy.  Since this was a weeknight meal I was really hoping to find some frozen squash but unfortunately the market was out. Peeling and dicing the squash was really no problem though.  I really love this recipe. What a great way to get some veggies into the meal (along with a side of broccoli of course). Super tasty and easy.  The pot was no fun for my son to wash though!

One note, instead of the called for chicken broth I made boullion with my favourite vegetarian Better than Boullion No Chicken Base.

#35 Easy Beer Mac and Cheese

On a cold December day who could resist the lure of beer and cheese?  This was good, a bit dry, not a favourite but did the trick. It had a really yummy crust and baked up crispy on the bottom as well. I opted out of the basil.  It would have looked prettier with it.  Recipe here from How Sweet it Is.
