Hsauce was there to visit and celebrate the opening of his parents’ store, Words and Pictures, which sells out of print and collectible books among other things. If you’re every in Langley, WA, check it out!
He also hiked.
Those are green beans with peanut ginger dressing (we’ve actually made this a couple of times now for friends and it is really, really good) and Hsauce’s own signature Pad Thai dish.
And I also tried out this recipe for mac and cheese (originally from PPK, I think). I’m always on the hunt for the best mac and cheese and I think I’ve found it! I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, adding more margarine (Earth Balance!) when I thought it needed it or more or less of other things and it came out just delicious!
Straight from the oven…
I think this is my favorite mac and cheese recipe. I made it again for Hsauce when he got back from his trip and yup, still tasty. I like covering it when it’s the oven to help prevent the top from getting too dry. This way, it all stays ooey-gooey and cheesey! Keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days and reheats well.
And yay, new sewing machine!
