Best homemade mac n cheese in the world!

On September 25, 2012, in Yummy Goodness, by Wendy

1/2 pound pasta (elbow, fusilli, whatevs)
2-4 tablespoons butter
1/2 can evaporated milk
2 eggs
10 oz or so of grated sharp cheddar cheese
salt to taste

cook pasta until al dente and drain. Add butter and toss to coat. Beat eggs and milk and pour into pot of pasta. Add cheese and stir until mixed and cook over low heat 3-4 minutes.

Amazing! It is so fast and easy, I’ll never make boxed mac n cheese again.

Izzyisms Volume 36

Mitch: I’ll drive you to work today.
Izzy: well, how am I going to get to school.
Wendy: you’re going to walk.
Izzy: what?! I can’t walk. You got confused. You must have thought I was six years old.

As I leaned in to kiss Isadora goodbye, she said: Mooooom! Your lipstick smells so obvious!

Grandpa DeeDee: Do you want another popsicle?
Isadora: No, thanks. It will make me crazy.

At bed time…
Isadora: I’m bored.
Wendy: good. Go to sleep then
I: I am too bored to go I sleep
W: do you even know what bored means?
I: No. What does it mean?
W: Lacking imagination.
I: well, I don’t want to lay here doing nothing.
W: go to sleep then. Sleeping is doing something.

Kirsten: why are you being so snotty today?
Izzy looks at herself in the mirror: I don’t have any snot in my nose.
Kirsten: I mean, why are you yelling and scowling and being cranky?
Izzy: oh, I’ve been going to too many parties lately.
