How adorable are these pug salt and pepper shakers?!? My sister gave them to me for Christmas, and I am totally in love with them. The fawn pug holds salt while the black pug holds pepper— and they kiss! 😀
Even as a healthier version of traditional mac & cheese, tonight’s dinner still wasn’t the most nutritious meal. But, it sure did taste amazing! 😉
While cooking, I munched on a couple of small pieces of French bread.
- 1 15.5-ounce can of cannellini (or navy) beans
- 5 ounces of Kraft Velveeta Cheese
- 1 tsp of minced garlic
- French bread, sliced
- Rinse and drain beans
- Melt Velveeta cheese in a medium sauce pan
- Stir in minced garlic then beans
- Meanwhile toast French bread
- Butter bread, if desired
- Use toasted bread to scoop-up cheesy bean mixture
Don’t get me wrong, this meal turned out wonderfully, but I would have preferred a less thick cheese sauce. Mal, on the other hand, could not stop ‘yum-ing’ and ‘mmm-ing’ while eating. He loved the thick Velveeta cheese.
Maybe not draining the beans or adding some chicken broth would lighten it up next time? For once, a meal had too much cheese for me!
For dessert, I enjoyed a couple of brownies. It was a two brownie night, if ya know what I mean. 😉
Carrots ‘N’ Cake has come along way since February 2008! I stumbled upon some posts from my first couple of weeks of blogging. It’s funny how some things never change though– like how often I eat homemade pizza! 😉
