Classic Macaroni and Cheese

This was easy and exactly how I expected it to be. I used shells and medium cheddar and Romano cheeses. I did add a little nutmeg and ground mustard to the bechamel. My husband said "wow the cheese flavor is very pronounced and that is my biggest complaint about some Mac and cheese is that the cheese flavor gets lost. A true classic.

Snap Pea Chopped Salad with Thai Vinaigrette

This was so delicious! I used soy sauce instead of fish sauce and reduced oil to 3 Tbsp and it was AMAZING! So fresh and crunchy! Nom nom nom ...

Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal

I make "Overnight Steel Cut Oats" which means I bring 3 c. water with 1 c. steel cut oats plus a little salt to a boil but once it reaches a boil I turn it off and let it sit overnight. In the morning you can reheat on the stove top or what I do is divy it up into 4 servings and reheat them as needed in the microwave with whatever fixings I feel like that day. This way the oats don't burn to the bottom of the pan like always seems to happen when I cook them in the traditional method plus I don't have to haul out my gigantic slow cooker either.
