That being said, we had it as a main course. We're really wild like that.
Easiest Baked Mac and Cheese
(serves 4-6 as a side dish)
1 1/2 cups macaroni noodles (or mini shells)
1 cup shredded cheddar
1 cup shredded swiss
1/3 cup Parmesan (*set aside some of the cheese to top the dish with)
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sour cream (or mayo)
2 T butter
1 T flour
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp hot sauce
1/2 tsp sea or kosher salt
Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain. Return noodles to the pot. Add everything else and stir over the heat until combined. Pour into a buttered baking dish. Top with more cheese if desired. Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes, then broil for about 2 minutes.
We ate a small portion each, and topped it with some roasted veggies.
The leftovers were great warmed up the next day.
Last night we sat outside, listened to tunes, visited, and cooked meatballs and potatoes on the BBQ. We had never cooked meatballs on the BBQ before, but I bought this cool contraption from Williams Sonoma years ago, and wanted to finally try it out.
We were really impressed with how well it worked! The meatballs were perfect. They held together really well, and cooked very evenly.
This weekend we are looking forward to relaxing in our backyard. We'd much rather hang out on our own deck than go out to a restaurant or pub patio. When we got groceries yesterday for the weekend and week ahead, we only bought stuff to BBQ. We'll be taking full advantage of the beautiful weather by cooking outside all week.
What are you up to this weekend? What's the weirdest thing you've ever cooked on the BBQ?
