A healthier mac and cheese

OMG Baby Boy slept all night last night! From 7:30pm to 6am, fed, then back to sleep until 8am. It’s amazing what a night of uninterrupted sleep can do to a person. I feel human again. I don’t expect it to happen again tonight, but who knows. Maybe we’ll get lucky πŸ™‚

Now on to the weekly recipe. This is a healthier version of mac and cheese that I’ve adapted from an Oxygen recipe. I’ve essentially brought up the spice a level and added kale, corn, and ground turkey to make a complete meal. This is a great make-ahead meal to keep in the fridge for the week, reheating some when there’s no time to make lunch or dinner. I try to make about 2 of these types of ‘long-term’ dishes on a weekly basis, and making a few seafood, steak, or egg dishes fresh.

Mac and cheeseEnjoy!
