Fabric shower curtain liners
I HATE cleaning the shower curtain when it (inevitably) starts getting gross and mildew-y. And those stupid "won't ever mildew!" shower curtain are liars. But you know what's awesome?
These shower curtain liners
Because when they start getting that lovely sign of mold, you THROW THEM IN THE WASHING MACHINE instead of awkwardly trying to scrub them! And they get CLEAN and you just hang them back up!
Hillshire Farm Beef Smoked Sausage
Yes, I mostly try to eat real food. And this is processed meat. But it's just SO delicious. So SO so delicious! I love it. A lot. Grilled on our griddler in the winter, or on skewers on our new grill now that it's warm, it's one of my absolute favorites! I pair it with redskin mashed potatoes (ohhhh I make awesome mashed potatoes, you wish you could eat them) and green beans. Yum!
We got ours from Crate & Barrel off our wedding registry and they're fabulous! Sturdier than wooden skewers, don't burn, super-long and strong. I love them!
Bacon mac 'n cheese
|Not enough bacon because I ate it all. Whoops...|
I make really delicious mac 'n cheese. Another thing you wish you could eat. And when I'm feeling fancy I top it with bacon, more cheese, and Italian seasoned panko bread crumbs. And serve green beans or something on the side but really, who cares what vegetable you're eating when you're filling up on starch, cheese, bacon, and more cheese?
Sadly for you, I have no real recipe... Basically I cook a pound of cellentani or cavatappi pasta, which makes it taste better because the pasta's pretty. Chop 3-6 slices bacon, drain & reserve fat (try not to eat all the bacon - I usually cook an extra slice or four for snacking). Saute 1/2 finely diced onion in fat. Add flour to make a roux. Add a bunch of milk (no measurements for anything - this is why mine is not a food blog!), then melt some good old processed American cheese in there until it tastes cheesy enough for you. Stir in drained pasta, top with grated cheese, bacon, and breadcrumbs. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
Not only is it an awesome toy for the kids (I really wish they would stop stealing it), but it keeps my salad greens fresh for SUCH a long time! Like, sometimes I forget about it and expect to open it up to see wilted and slimy greens, but they're somehow still fresh!
Linking up with Hallie - go check out all the awesome things! And send up a prayer for her and her house full of sick little ones :(
