Macaroni and Cheese with Kielbasa

Adam and I spent most of the day with my mom, helping her do some things outside. We got home around 4:30 and before we knew it, it was time for dinner. We didn't really have anything set out so I started looking around. I saw kielbasa, but we didn't have any kraft macaroni. So I created my own macaroni and cheese with kielbasa.

This was awesome! And might be my new favorite way of preparing kielbasa.

Macaroni and Cheese with Kielbasa (From: Myself)
  • 1/2 ring kielbasa cut into slices and then cut into quarters
  • 2 c. cheddar jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 c. half and half
  • al' dente pasta (anything will work)
  • seasoning salt
  • onion powder
  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 T. flour

Fry kielbasa in a pan. Take out of pan and set aside.

Melt butter in pan with kielbasa juices, add flour and mix until smooth and thick.

Mix in half and half and mix until no lump exist.

Add 1 3/4 c. cheese and simmer until melted. You can add more half and half or milk if it's too thick for you.

Mix in noodles, kielbasa, and rest of cheese. Serve hot :)

Grandmother's Morning Treat

I knew I wanted to make my mom breakfast for mothers day, I was just a little unsure of what to make, last year my breakfast wasn't all that impressive. I was talking to her at our mother daughter day yesterday and she was telling me about her new cookbook, and she had fun a really yummy overnight french toast. I decided to give it a try.

This recipe was really simple to throw together right before bed. And just a few steps in the morning. This recipe turned out ok, it was edible but not a favorite of anyone, you needed some syrup blueberry was the favorite. The easiest way to explain it is a large cream cheese danish.

Happy Mothers Day to My Mom, and all you other moms out there. This is My Mom, My baby brother (he is turning 18 next week... I can't believe it) and myself.
Grandmother's Morning Treat (From: Bethal Favorites)
  • 1/2 c. plus few Tablespoons Butter
  • French bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/8 nutmeg
  • 1/4 t. cinnamon
  • 1/4 t. mace (I omitted)
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c. cream
  • 1 c. cream cheese
  • 2 T. corn syrup
  • 1 c. nuts (I omitted)

Butter 9x9 baking dish. Cut 1-inch thick slices of bread and fill dish 2/3 full.

Mix eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, mace, vanilla and cream. Pour over bread slices.

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning mix cream cheese, corn syrup, and nuts together. Spread this over the bread slices and bake at 350 until puffed golden, about 50 minutes.

Place a tray underneath it while baking and let it sit awhile afterwards.
