We got her this new chair with an umbrella and she loves it!
I love spending days like this with my family! We had a picnic lunch there and just enjoyed spending time on the beach and in the water! Can't wait to go back again!!
Every once in a while Emma and I take a ride to the University of Maine gardens. There flowers there are always so beautiful. Of course I love going there to take photos. And Miss Emma is my model =)
I really can't believe how she is growing and that she will be starting kindergarten very very soon!
So tonight for dinner I wanted to try a new recipe that I found on another blog! It's called Cheeseburger Macaroni. It was super yummy! It reminded me a lot of hamburger helper...but completely homemade and much much better!
You start with these ingredients:
Brown 1 lb of lean hamburg and then drain. Then add these following ingredients:
1 pkg of Taco Seasoning Mix. 2 cups of beef broth. 1 can of Ro*Tel tomatoes with green chils. And 1 cup of elbow macaroni. Mix all of those ingredients with the hamburg. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for about 15 minutes. While that is simmering gather these ingredients to make the sauce:
In a saucepan melt 2 tbsp of butter. Then add 2 tbsp of flour. Whisk in the flour and cook while whisking for about 5 minutes until fragrant and light brown in color.
Then add 3/4 cup of milk. Whisk the milk and bring it to a boil. Whisk until smooth and thickened. Remove from the heat and add 1 cup of cheddar cheese. And then add salt and pepper to taste. Then pour it over the hamburg mixture!!
And there you have it! It was really yummy! The Ro*Tel tomatoes add quite a bit of spice so if your not into spicy foods I'm sure you could substitute it with just regular canned tomatoes!
I hope everyone had a really great weekend!!! =)
