It is no secret that I love Taco Bell. One of my favorite menu items is the Limeade Sparkler. The recipe is insanely easy. Fill your cup with Sierra Mist, add a limeade concentrate (as much or as little as you want depending on how sour you like it. I like it sour so I add a tablespoon or two) and add a squeeze of a lime wedge and there you have it. I thought this concoction would be great for a popsicle and I was right. Same principle as the drink. Fill the mold with Sierra Mist, add some limeade concentrate and a little fresh lime and freeze. YUM.
Another recipe I tried was Martha's "world's best macaroni and cheese," we are serious Macaroni and Cheese consumers in this house and thought this would be a good one to try. I don't usually like homemade mac as well as the storebought stuff. I know...what's up with that? This recipe was good. I don't agree with the world's best rating but what made it was some smoked Gruyere. My local WalMart only had smoked for some reason. I used just a little as a topping and then slid it under the hot broiler for a minute. It made the dish. Smoked cheese...welcome to flavor country.
Next week is Girls Camp for me and Camp Grammi for the kiddos.
