Sunday Mac-n-Cheese and Chicken

hapsterhapster Posts: 6,219
Today is even nicer than yesterday. Going to be making a ton of chicken breasts along with an attempt at Cajun Mac-n-Cheese...

If anyone needs me, I'll be on my deck listening to the Tigers staying undefeated later.

    Thanks! My neighbor from across the street rang my doorbell this morning and asked if I'd be available to help him move a new refrigerator later today. If it looks like we need an extra hand I'll give you a shout.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Yum!! And you know that no one has ever gone 162-0, right? Just lower the expectations a bit to be safe ;)

    Looks like we dodged a bullet on this one Hap. Even with the doors off, the delivery guys could not get the refrigerator into the house. So it went back onto the truck. 

    Go ahead, relax, and enjoy your Sunday!

    Here are some pics... It turned out great! Doing a bunch of chicken shortly on the egg followed by a peach cobbler. Did the Mac n cheese in the oven.

    Looks awesome!!!! I'd say the only thing wrong with today for you is the end of the Tigers dream of 162-0 coming crashing to an end.  Great looking cook.

    Very nice!  I am going to make this for my wife soon.  Two of her favorite things are shrimp and grits and mac n cheese, and this recipe combines them both into one beautiful dish. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Little bit of drama earlier... Elise took a spill on her scooter today and while she wears a helmet all the time, it doesn't protect her chin...

    She'll be fine, and I'm sure the peach cobbler will help in a bit.

    oh. WOW on that M&C.  Has this already been served?  I'd like to have some sent down to Alabama, please.  I think M&C just got added to MY menu for the evening now (Q, Corn Spoon Bread, slaw, strawberry pound cake.  mmmac and cheese now, too!)  :-)  You're really good, Hap!

    Thank you @ChristinaSunshine:)

    The cooking is my doing, Elise's good looks are her mother's fault ;)

    And here is dessert for later... Help to heal that chin :)

    Peach cobbler... Added some Sailor Jerry to the peach mix before adding it to the pot.

    And some of the chicken I did earlier for meals this week.

    The mac-cheese is carrying an intoxicating aroma through this phone. Cardiologist says I can only sniff it f2f year and eat 4ounces of it every other.

    Glad your daughter is OK. I never ride my bike without mine. Look what happened to Shimon.
