Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

I'm going to post some of my favorite recipes up until Xmas. You can look at is I'm giving you ideas of what to feed your guests or to bring to your holiday celebrations. Or you can read the truth and know that I don't have squat to talk about today so I'm throwing a recipe at you.
Mom's Mac and Cheese
1 box Macaroni noodles or rotini works good too.
3-4 kinds of cheeses (shredded or cubed)**
1 Cup milk
1/2 cup butter
finely chopped medium onion
breadcrumbs or your own toasted bread cubes (don't use croutons)
** Strong flavored cheeses work best.
Cook the macaroni drain and set aside
Make the cheese sauce. melt butter in a sauce pan, saute your onion until it is clear. pull off the stove (or work fast) whisk in the flour to make your roux. Add in milk, return to stove whisk til smooth and add in your cheese gradually to get it all blended in. Once you have your gooey cheese sauce mix it into your macoroni making sure it all gets covered.
Put this all into a big casserole dish (or individual crocks), top with your breadcrumbs or cubes (the amount is to whatever you desire but don't overdo it on the breadcrumbs.)
Bake at 350 F until its all bubbly and brown.
You can make this vegan simply by using soy replacement products.
I've added measurements to this recipe but in reality I cook without measuring. If it needs more or less of something, that's what I do. Mom likes to add worcestershire to the cheese sauce and I think it's good if you add sun dried tomatos to the cheese mixture.
Husbeast sleeves are about 7 inches and I still haven't decided which yarn to spin first. It is a knitting blog so I had to add in that last sentence.
