It’s Pizza

and Mac and Cheese

all in  one delicious skillet 

Pizza Mac and Cheese

 

Some people love to cook, some don’t.

I happen to be one that does {I bet  you didn’t know that}

Making dinner is one of my favorite parts of the day…usually, that is until we sit down to the table, and then the whining.

OMG it’s mind-numbingly annoying.

“what is this?’ “that looks gross.” “can’t you make normal food?” “I’m not eating.”

kids are SO much fun aren’t they?

If  it’s not a burger, pizza, or mac and cheese, chances are there WILL be whining, and plenty of it, and this is why wine was invented.

BUT,  every now and then I like to give my ears, and  my liver, a break, and make something the kids will actually eat without complaint.

Pizza and mac and cheese, all in one.

There was not a complaint to be heard, but here may have been wine anyways.

    Made the mac and cheese tonight – changed to all gluten free ingredients (used extra fine white rice flour for roux). It was delicious! We are going to try adding different ingredients next time, like sausage, mushrooms and sautéed onions. Thanks for the recipe – it’s a keeper!

    Thank you for this. Seriously I just want to hug you. I made this for dinner last night and it is SO, so very delicious. I’m eating the leftover for lunch and all my coworkers are asking for the recipe. I’m adding it to our go-to easy dinners. And I already can’t wait to make it again!! :)
