Cloves on Loaves

This is a simple, but stinky, life saver. This week I started to feel the flu coming on, but I was determined to not let it get me, so I turned to my dad's tried and true method. He has always told me to load up on garlic when I feel the aches and pains coming on, and I do.....I use the sweet little garlic pills, no after taste and no stink....and I still get sick.

This time I was feeling bold so I mashed 5 cloves of garlic on to 2 pieces of toast with butter and chomped them down, and went to bed.

It worked. The next morning I was a little aromatic, but I felt so good; like miracle good. I think the trick is to eat it as soon as you feel yourself getting sick and lay it on! Too much garlic can lead to an upset stomach, so take it a few cloves at a time, and I think a little bread and milk help soothe as it goes down.

As an added bonus, I haven't had any trouble with vampires this week either....

Semi-Homemade Chesseburger Mac

I got this recipe off the back of cheddar cheese soup and sort of changed a bit... I love this recipe because it is healthy for the kids, they love it, it's easy to make, and it didn't come out of a box. Since being pregnant and doing so much lately I have come accustomed to quick fix meals like box and can stuff...

  • 1 lb. burger
  • 1 can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 cups fun pasta
  • Italian seasoning or any of your favorite herbs
to make:

  • brown beef and drain. Add rest of ingredients and bring to boil. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes stirring often until pasta is tender.
