Happy Holidays!!

I hope you're having some happy holidays. Yesterday was Christmas, and it was a busy day for me. Not for mama's camera though. It was being a bad camera, and prolly won't get presents from Santa next year.

I will be super good next year, and was good last year so I will get and did get some presents. Hooray for me!! I got some new shoes and socks, clothes, gloves, an apron and play fruit, coloring books and regular books, and blocks. Lots of blocks.

I hope you are all having some happy holidays too!!

Something new... Something yummy!!

There's a saying that says that you learn something new everyday. My something new today was yummy! It happened while mama and I were baking banana muffins. Right after we got done mixing the batter. And before we scooped the batter into the muffin pan.

I found out you can take the beaters out of the mixer and do this with them:

Gabe's Favorite Cheesy Pasta

Every week mama and I make cheesy pasta. Every week daddy and I eat it all. It is my favorite food, and the best part is that it gets better the more leftoverish it becomes. Yummy!!

{Cheesy Pasta}
4 cups cooked pasta {about 16 oz}
2 tbsp butter or margarine
1/2 tsp chopped onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground mustard
2 tbsp flour
2 cups plain yogurt {we like soy!!}
3 cups shredded cheese

{If you haven't already, prepare the pasta according to the directions.}

Melt the butter in a pan. Then add your onion, garlic powder and ground mustard. Let them simmer for about 3-5 minutes.

Add some flour. This will help thicken your sauce. Mix it all up and let it simmer for a few minutes.

Now add the yogurt and mix it all up. Let it simmer for a few minutes so it's all a consistent temperature.

Then slowly mix in your cheese. We used medium cheddar, but you can use different types/combinations. Rememberize that if you use less yellow cheeses, your sauce may not look as "cheesy".

Let your cheese sauce simmer for a few minutes to get the cheese all melted and mixed in. Then you can spoon some on your noodles. {Mmmm...}

Whatever is leftover can be stored in the fridge for about a week {it never lasts longer than that at our house!!} It gets even better when it's leftovers!!
