Hi everyone! Hope your Thursday has been great! I have had a good couple of days. Yesterday I had a Biology lab quiz and rushed after to go eat at the Shed BBQ. I had a BBQ chicken with their homemade sauce and the best potato salad ever. After that, we went to watch Cirque du Soleil Dralion. It was fantastic! My husband was very impressed. Here is a sample of the show.
I was a bit tired today since the show ended around 10 (my bedtime). But it was well worth it. He now wants to go to other Cirque du Soleil shows. I think we will probably go to the one in Vegas once we move to Cali.
On an other note, bloggers and people that I know are doing a 7 Day Vegan challenge. My hubby Brian and I have decided to try doing it next week. So of course, today I made filet mignon and some Mexican style mac n’ cheese. My mom used to make it for us when we were kids and her mother used to make it for them. It is actually passed down from my great grandmother who was born and raised in Mexico. It is a super simple but delicious recipe.
Mexican Style Mac n’ Cheese:
- 4-6 oz. of cheddar cheese
- 1/2 pkg. whole wheat penne or elbow pasta
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 white or Vidalia onion
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
- a few tablespoons of skim milk
- salt and pepper
- 1 sml can of tomato sauce
- Make pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
- Heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil in pan
- Chop up about 1/2 a white or sweet onion
- Chop about 1-2 cloves of garlic
- Sautee onion and garlic until onion is translucent
- Add pasta and tomato sauce and stir
- Add cheddar cheese
- Add pepper and salt and mix well
- Add 1 tbsp. at a time until the mac n’ cheese is a creamy consistency
I am so excited for this weekend! We are having a little getaway and taking a weekend trip to New Orleans. I reserved the hotel about a month ago and we will be going to Bourbon Street, and also eating some Cajun cuisine. I will be updating the blog with some restaurant reviews and lots of pics! Well I am off to bed! See you tomorrow for the 1st night recap of New Orleans!
