Creamy Macaroni and Cheese (w/ Ham)

This is a delightfully easy and delicious rendition of a creamy (vice baked casserole style) macaroni and cheese. I will admit that it is reminiscent of boxed mac n' cheese, but it is one of the few hot dishes our toddler will share with us. And although I have included ham here, it is entirely optional (and frankly just a great way to use up leftover Christmas ham). A tweaked version of this Southern Living recipe.

Lao Crispy Rice Salad

We first had this salad at a Thai/Lao restaurant in Virginia. It was freakin' awesome, and so we set making it at home. We combined three recipes and the result was quite good.

This recipe yielded our best ham results yet: https://www.delish.com/cooking/recipe-ideas/recipes/a58445/best-... :

  • 1 (10-lb.) fully cooked whole ham (boneless or bone-in)
  • ½ c. packed brown sugar
  • ¼ c. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1½ c. apple cider

Preheat oven to 325º. Place ham cut side down on a roasting rack set in a roasting pan and score diagonally.

Cover with foil and bake until warmed throughout, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

Meat Lasagna

This recipe is a hybrid of Sharon's recipe and and a very intense online recipe. My guess is that both are derived from the Betty Crocker Cookbook.

Serves 6. Bakes in a 9x9 pan.

Meat sauce:

Cook and stir together until meat is brown and onion is tender:

  • 3 Italian sausages (approx 0.5 lbs, mixed between mild and spicy; can substitute ground beef for all or part)
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup sliced mushrooms

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons Champagne vinegar, white wine vinegar, or rice vinegar
