Baked Mac n' Cheese

Happy 4th of July everyone!!!  We hope that you have a wonderful day.

Today I am sharing my recipe for Baked 
Mac n'Cheese.  I was looking for something to make for Danny, who is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and decided to make this Baked Mac n' Cheese for with the hamburgers that I was making the other night.  I made it with egg noodles since I didn't have any elbow noodles on hand, but you could use any kind of a noodle.  Next week we will be posting Vince's recipe for Mac n' Cheese.  He's showing me how to make it this Saturday.  I'm pretty excited, I love cooking with my kids.  I think Danny is going to be making homemade Fish and Chips for a post also in the next week.  So even though Charly is very pregnant and doesn't want to cook a lot right now, her brothers are pitching in with recipes.

Homemade Mac n' Cheese


1 large bag egg noodles
24 oz velveeta cheese cubed
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cups cream or milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper


Cook noodles according to the directions on the bag.  Then drain and set aside in the pan.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray nonstick cooking spray in a 9 x 13 casserole dish.

In a large sauce pan melt butter and then stir in flour.

Cook flour over medium heat for about 2 minutes.

Then slowly add the cream, salt, and pepper.

Next, add the cheese and stir constantly until cheese has melted.

Pour the cheese sauce over the noodles and mix well.  

Pour into the prepared casserole dish and bake for 30 to 40 minutes.

Makes 12 to 15 servings.

I hope that you like this recipe for Baked Mac n' Cheese.  Vince's sounds delicious.  He makes it with Chorizo, so it must have a little kick, check back next week for his recipe.  I always love hearing from you.

Mia Grace Baby Blanket and Blog Happenings Update

I have been working on a new pattern for this Mia Grace Baby Blanket.  It's named for Charly's baby girl, who will be here sometime in the next month.  I am trying to get it done, so that they can take it to the hospital with them to wrap my beautiful little granddaughter in.  Once I have finished it, I will post the pattern for all of you.  It's pretty simple and works up quickly.  Mia's nursery is black, white, and pink, which is why I'm using these colors in the blanket.  I will post pictures of the nursery this week.  Charly is just putting the last of the babies things away and finishing putting things together and then I will take pictures to show all of you.  It's adorable.  She and Ryan have done a great job.

I also wanted to post a little update about what is happening on Adorned From Above.  I wrote a post several months ago about blogging and trying to find some kind of a balance in my life with blogging.  I love blogging, but I have found that it seemed to take over everything, so I am taking a little step back.  I will still be posting, but less frequently.  I found that I have really missed some of my hobbies that take a little more time.  So like with this blanket pattern, I will post a little less often, because some of these things take more time to make.  Also, since Charly is having a baby soon, she will be spending more time taking care of Mia and less time on the blog.  We will see how much time she feels she can spend blogging once the baby is here.

We can not tell you how much we appreciate the time you take to come by and visit us.  We hope you will continue.  If you sign up for emails, then when new posts come up they will just show up in your emails rather then you having to check back each day for new posts.  

Have a wonderful week.

Love - Matthew 5:44

It's easy to love your friends and family, but it's a hard thing is to love your enemies.  That doesn't come naturally to us.  I love these words from Jesus, "Love your enemies".  I don't know about you, but I pray a lot, and this is something that I need to remember.  Pray for my enemies.  Pray for what comes against our country, our cities, our family and friends in our daily lives.  Ask for God's help.  He is listening!!!

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Matthew 5:44 

Have a blessed day.
