It’s not the weekend quite yet, but I was inspired to take my mind off some very sad news about my grandfather (vovô in Portuguese). If you’ve seen my Facebook updates, you know he had a stroke recently and lost 2/3 of his brain and was paralyzed on the right side, and since then, it has been touch and go. Unfortunately, there’s not enough the doctors can do, and it is just a matter of time before he passes.
So, I took out my copy of SOS! The Six O’clock Scramble to the Rescue by Aviva Goldfarb to find something to make for dinner that was easy and mindless. Typical me, I had to spruce it up and change it around. I didn’t have any shredded cheddar, but I had some sliced cheddar, I didn’t have any mustard powder, and I didn’t want sausage. Instead, I used pepper and some diced canned tomatoes, along with the salt, nutmeg, sliced cheddar. First, you melt margarine in the casserole dish before adding the macaroni and ensuring it is covered with the butter. Once that’s done you add the other ingredients, plus milk and bake at 350 for an hour.
Again, I put my own twist on it by adding about a teaspoon of flour to thicken the sauce and reduced the amount of milk since I also had the juice from the tomatoes. You bake it in the oven without a cover. This is the finished product with some browned bread crumbs on top.
Thanks for stopping by and when I feel like reading again, I will have some reviews for you. Please bear with me.
Since writing this my grandfather has passed away. I’ll probably be offline for a while. If I miss anything important, please email me. Thanks to everyone for their support, prayers, and condolences.
