28th Cookout

Last night and a day late we celebrated Hubs birthday with a cookout. About 20 of our friends came to help us celebrate how wonderful Hubby is and it was so much fun! Have I mentioned how much we're going to miss our friends once we all move after school??? :) Anyway, here are some recipes from last night...

Can you see the baked Mac N Cheese behind the corn salad? Well, here is the recipe:
8 0z package of elbow Macaroni
8 oz package of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
12 oz container of cottage cheese
8 oz of sour cream
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to salt
1 cup of dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup of melted butter

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, add pasta, and cook until done; drain.
  2. In 9x13 inch baking dish, stir together macaroni, shredded Cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. In a small bowl, mix together bread crumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle topping over macaroni mixture.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until top is golden.
Of course, you can substitute to make this a bit healthier...
