Meat-less Thursday Meal
I have been on a quest to drop 30 pounds and I was thrilled to see I have lost 8 pounds since my last weigh in which makes a total of 12 pounds since I had my son last August. I am in my old clothes but I have a long way to go. I decided that I would go meatless once a week and gradually work my way up to three days a week, this decision was not welcomed with the family - since I do all the cooking, that meant they would be meatless as well LOL! It seems no sooner did I decide to go meatless on Thursday, a recipe for
Panera-Mac-and-Cheese appeared from the Heaven's (by way of annies-eats.com) that I just had to try.
My daughter "Jai" Protested, my husband gave me the stink-eye and reluctantly accepted his plate (over on the right side of the picture above) and even waited until after I began eating to try the dinner. And then it happened... complete and utter SILENCE around the dinner table! Everyone loved dinner!
You simply must give this recipe a try - I did add minced garlic and onion powder to the seasoning but that is all I added to the original recipe. My husband took the last serving to work on Monday and sent a text message stating how good the mac-and-cheese was and the flavors were still there and even better.
Meatless Thursday's are in effect and so far so good!
