Mom Monday Recipe

It's a Linky over at Thinking of Teaching to link up with some yummy recipes that you can feed your family/kids!

This is one that is like a staple in my's a Pampered Chef recipe (I use a lot of those recipes..or derivatives of.)....and this is a great one to get the kids to each veggies...I do a lot of these. In fact, I think I might just make that my trend each week; to give you recipes that'll get the family to eat more veggies. I do it to my husband too, and he has no idea! ha!!

Those girls are something else! I wish I could get my 2 year old to sit that still when she's at the doctor. She absolutely hates that crunchy sounding paper!! Love some mac and cheese, good comfort food!
