Patty, that is a great list of suggestions for the mac and cheese. Something that should be printed out and put in the bags for the people that pick up items at the food bank. The one we contribute to is small, not like the one the city runs. They serve people on an emergency basis that are waiting to be approved for welfare, food stamps etc. I might even suggest that to them. It may be a small operation run out of a donated house but I took some stuff in the single car garage and I could not believe the bags of food that were stacked against the two side walls. The house serves as an office and there are two sheds in the back yard where they store canned and packaged food and one for used clothing. You list also would be great for camping menus.

Thanks for printing it

First off, I will make some jam. Just need to get my body back to sleeping better before I do that. Then, we use them for some of JoAnna;'s recipes that use cherries, even if they are sweet cherries. Crisps, muffins, cobbler, jam, and pies of course. They are good in jello too, put them in frozen in the jello, but just remember the pits are in there still. I never pit them before I freeze them...

One time I made up a list of ways to use Kraft mac and cheese. Here is my list.
1. TUNA and NOODLES
1 box Kraft
1 can mushroom soup
1 can tuna
1 drained can of peas

2. CHILI MAC
1 box Kraft
1/2 pound burger
1 canned drained corn
celery and onions
tomato sauce, or paste or soup

3. STROGANOFF
1 cup sour cream
celery and onions
mushroom soup
leftover beef or 1/2 pound burger
1 box Kraft

4. CHICKEN CASSEROLE
1 box Kraft
1 can mushroom soup or chicken soup
1/2 cup chicken or trukey
1 can drained green beans
celery and onions

5. GOULOSH
2 boxes mac and cheese
1 quart tomatoes
1 pound burger
celery and onions

6. BROCCOLI CHICKEN CASSEROLE
1 box Kraft
cooked broccoli
chicken
cheese
mushroom soup

7. ITALIAN MACARONI SALAD
2 boxes Kraft
feta cheese
Italian dressing
fresh veggies, like carrots, celery and onions, black olives

8. MACARONI SALAD
1 box Kraft, cooked and cooled
1 can tuna
miracle whip
fresh veggies like carrots, celery and onions

9. LASAGNA
2 boxes Kraft
ricotta or cottage cheese or cream cheese
mozzarella cheese
spaghetti sauce
1/2 pound burger

10. FRANKFURTER CASSEROLE
1 box Kraft
1/2 pound hotdogs, cut up
1 can chili soup, or tomato soup
1 can drained corn


11.MAC AND SPAM
1 box Kraft
1 can spam, cut up and fried
onions and celery
This was all that I could think of. Hey, maybe I should write a cookbook.

Can you think of anything else to mix with Kraft mac and cheese?

Patty

Good Afternoon all, I slept late this morning so just about had breakfast at lunch time. We have another nice cooler day before next weeks predicted warm up. Nothing planned here today. I did find a tuna recipe to fix for supper. We haven't had fish all week and I do try to get it in at least once and prefer twice.

Patty, when you thaw the cherries you have frozen how do you us them? Do you just eat them raw or what type of dishes do you put them in. Other than pie. emoticon
I can still picture the sight of all those red cherries on the trees on the Traverse peninsular. Years ago I use to make a dinner using Kraft's mac and cheese by adding a can of tuna and some frozen peas. My kids liked it. What did they know, I use to make lots of casseroles when their dad was over seas on a Navy ship.

Sarah, I can understand you getting tired of your own cooking. Does your shopper belong to Costco? They have prepared items that would last a single person several meals. Like salad paks that are all individually wrapped ready to assemble, etc. Sam's club probably has the same. When I hear from my friend again I will ask her when she worked for HSN. Sounds like she has to go to the library to use their computers.

Glenna, I think DH tomato plants got too much heat when we had a hot spell early in their planting. DH still thinks they're great and makes himself a tomato sandwich for lunch each day. Upps DH doesn't make sandwiches, --- he builds them.

Jan, we could use some of your rain. I know that won't happen. I always put my grocery list together the day before I shop too. Gotta check the coupons expiration dates.

DH is happy again. in the mail today he got one of DS wood crafted pepper mills. DH had broken his squeeze mill. The one DS sent it a beauty. I'm not a pepper eater but DH puts it on just about everything.

Hi Everyone

Sunny, hot, humid and a chance of rain.....slim chance. Is it hot around you? It's mid July so I should expect hot weather.

Jan I'm trying to make out my market list also. I have no idea what to fix or buy to fix. I'm ready to eat someone else's cooking, really tired of my cooking. Beans and pasta for lunch so just need to figure out dinner.

Patty the cherries will taste great this winter. Glad you got some sleep.

Everyone have a great day!

Good morning everyone,

Patty, you have been a busy bee this morning. I can just see all those bright cherries. Yum. Friday night is a good time for pizza. Take care of yourself and get rested. It sounds like a good possibility that your jam making marathon made your body go into revolt. It's aggravating when we want to do what we used to do easily and now there are kickbacks.

It's a rainy, cool morning here. Right now it's 57 but will be up to 65. No big plans here today except I'll be doing some reading and also some planning for grocery shopping day.

Morning Girls,
Just put the cherries in bags for the freezer. We picked enough for 17 quart bags. That's a lot of cherries. I just bagged them, now hu bby is trying to find a place in the freezer to put them...

Today is lunch at senior center
take Mom to store for visiting and shopping

then come home and collapse

Slept better while I slept. In the past 3 nights, I have gotten a total of 12 hours sleep. That is not good. I am exhausted. Something upset my sleeping, adn I don't know what it is. The only thing I can think of is that 3 hours making jam. It did exhaust me, but so many things do. My eating has been the same, no coffee after 4 PM. So I don't know what is going on. These pills are supposed to take care of that. We shall see.

I think if hubby wants pizza he will have to make it himself. Well, actually, he did buy frozen crusts from the store. I could get a jar of pizza sauce today. We have cheese and pepperoni. OK, we are all set for pizza tonight...lol

Have a good day girls. It was good to see so many of you on, yesterday.

Patty
