The answer may surprise you, but growing up in the McMillin household it was always….
Baked beans!! Back in the day we would serve our Kraft’s with our Busch’s and swirl it all in together. Now that I’m grown up and sophisticated, I serve them in separate bowls.
And we eat Annie’s! It was $10/10 this week. I don’t know how we resisted buying 10!
Other things that go particularly well with mac ‘n cheese:
- French Fries
- Chicken Strips
- Avocado – I’m guessing. It goes well with everything!
My day started at 5:30 AM this morning when Kevin mumbled “cinnamon rolls” to me.
Our Best Bites Overnight Cinnamon Rolls! One of my sweet co-workers has been in chronic muscle pain this week since she kind of threw out her neck. Since my one of my spiritual gifts is memorizing their food preferences, I knew cinnamon rolls were her fave. I personally thought they were a little dry, and I was VERY close to not bringing them in and trying again tomorrow. But I’m glad I just went with it, because everyone claimed to love them. I know – I’m my own worst critic! I will say that the best perk is that they made our apartment smell AMAZING!
Look what I got on sale today:
Today’s workout: Finally nice out so we got to take it outside!
Don’t think I’m ready for the Cross Fit challenges where you have to do major monkey bars. I could barely make 2! Have I mentioned how sore my arms have been ever since that burpee challenge!? The last two days I’ve been having trouble putting away dishes and opening doors!! I kid you not. So of course last night, I decided to focus on lower body and did 5.68 miles of stairs. My legs aren’t actually sore today (they really are MACHINES compared to my upper body), but they just felt tired. Will I ever learn to do a normal amount of something? Haha.
We let the Boykin tag along for two miles. He was a pain like always, but it was fun playing with him at the park. We hurtled him down a slide a few times which he was okay with. But no luck with the jungle gym or the baby swing!
Kevin and I – the Fanta twins – ran just over 5 miles in 45 minutes. Good for tonight! I know. You don’t have to say it. We look a little like we could be brother/sister. Haha. You wouldn’t say that if you knew how close I actually look to my sibs.
We celebrated Leap Day with fro-yo! What else? Plus Yogurtini was having a sale – 29 cents an ounce! I wasn’t going to pass that up! Tonight I realized how much I love the plain vanilla. I don’t think I had ever tasted it before because I get very caught up in the specialty flavors.
I thought about Leap Day allll day, but I didn’t really think of any other awesome ways to celebrate it. But it was still pretty exciting for me. Kevin is still getting used to my need to celebrate every tiny little thing.
What goes with mac ‘n’ cheese!?!Baked beans. Or broccoli.
Favorite kind of Cheerios? PB or frosted. I’m curious about the Dulce de Leche flavor also, but I didn’t buy it.
Can you do monkey bars? I mean, they’re hard!!!!!!
Favorite piece of playground equipment? Well, definitely the swings. And the merry-go-rounds. And teeter-totters!
