Macaroni…er…Penne and Cheese and Cheese. Who doesn't love macaroni and cheese?  I am lactose intolerant and I will still throw back 2, 3, 4 lactaids to enjoy the beautiful and savory flavor of macaroni and cheese, even if it is Kraft.  I am a "whole foodie" and by that I mean that I try to stay away...

Less is More!

Well, the first week back at home school is almost done and within the first 2 days I realized that my kids have to be separated for morning work. Period!

Thankful it’s over!
