My poor neglected blog. I have given you no attention in what feels like forever. In reality it has been only 2 months. The past 2 months have been crazy. Joey has a HS diploma and is working in the culinary field. He makes amazing food for us and he will be a famous chef one day, I am sure of that. Alex and Noah are both still suffering from their POTS symptoms. This video is a good summary of what their daily issues are:
Both Alex and Noah are in the IIS(Interim Instructional Services) program through Montgomery county. It is the only way for them both to keep up with their school work.
Jake is in 5th grade and having a very good year so far and Diane is in 1st grade and having a fabulous time.
Tons of cooking going on. Our weekly soup is a mushroom, potato farro stew and it is amazing.
Lots of craziness going on around here. Will try to update more often.
I will leave you with our healthy Mac and Cheese recipe.
Sara’s Mac and Cheese
Heat 1 and 1/2 cup milk in a pan. In a small bowl whisk together 1/4 cup milk and 3T flour. Add this mixture in to the milk and heat up after it is slowly boiling for about 5 minutes. Keep whisking it, until it gets a little bit thicker. Take pan off the heat and stir in 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, 1 cup of ricotta cheese and a little salt. You will now have a nice creamy, fairly healthy cheese sauce. Stir in one box of your favorite cooked pasta. Combine until all the noodles are nicely coated with cheese sauce. Pour into a oven proof pan. Sprinkle over the top a bit of salt, parmesan and cornflake crumbs. Bake at 450 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until bubbly and brown a bit.
