shadows, crowning, and Mac N cheese

"Shadows" is the theme for this month over at "If Its Groovy". That Groovy Deb has me scrapping out of my usual chronological order for this one. I found a great picture from this winter when we were all skating over at a friends' pond. I stamped the paper with silver metallic ink, and used glitter paper to shadow box the bottom title.

The month of May is a month for Mary. Luke got the honor of crowning Mary at a prayer service this morning. He looks so handsome (and grown up) in his fancy clothes.

Monday means a recipe. I'm trying this one tonight. My kids love Noodles and Company macaroni and here will be our attempt. A friend found this on the internet.

Mac and Cheese (Noodles and Co. style)
1 # elbow noodles
1/4 C butter
1/4 C flour
3 C half and half
1/2 tsp salt
3 C shredded Monterrey Jack cheese (or Colby Jack)

Cook pasta according to package directions.

In large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour, making a roux. Gradually stir in half and half, whisking until thickened. Stir in salt. Remove from heat. add cheese, stir until cheese melts. Pour sauce over noodles as you serve it. Top with more shredded cheese.
