Busy Busy Busy....

I have been busy preparing for Christmas...I think all of my "stuff" is done now - I just have to do a few minor things. I would really like to make and freeze Brown Sugar Biscuits on Tues. to take to my Mom's house on Christmas morning. I would also like to make a Stromboli recipe to eat one this week and freeze one to eat for lunch with company later this weekend. I need to go to the grocery tomorrow also, so we'll see if all that happens! Oh- chex mix too...

Mexi-Mac Skillet

Last week I got home around 5:30 with no idea what to make for dinner - I know - big mistake. I remembered this recipe for Mexi-Mac Skillet from Taste of Home that includes ingredients we always have on hand, so I pulled it out (I had printed it) and got to work. We ate around 6.

The only adjustment I made was to add a can of black beans and a little more water....I just watched the skillet to make sure it did not get too dry before the pasta was done. It was great and we had leftovers for two lunches!
