Still cookin'

It is no secret that I love Taco Bell.  One of my favorite menu items is the Limeade Sparkler.  The recipe is insanely easy.  Fill your cup with Sierra Mist, add a limeade concentrate (as much or as little as you want depending on how sour you like it.  I like it sour so I add a tablespoon or two) and add a squeeze of a lime wedge and there you have it.  I thought this concoction would be great for a popsicle and I was right.  Same principle as the drink.  Fill the mold with Sierra Mist, add some limeade concentrate and a little fresh lime and freeze.  YUM.

Another recipe I tried was Martha's "world's best macaroni and cheese,"  we are serious Macaroni and Cheese consumers in this house and thought this would be a good one to try.  I don't usually like homemade mac as well as the storebought stuff.  I know...what's up with that?  This recipe was good.  I don't agree with the world's best rating but what made it was some smoked Gruyere.  My local WalMart only had smoked for some reason.  I used just a little as a topping and then slid it under the hot broiler for a minute.  It made the dish.  Smoked cheese...welcome to flavor country.
Next week is Girls Camp for me and Camp Grammi for the kiddos.
We are getting ready:
