Hey, everyone! Did you have a nice weekend? Did you get some gorgeous weather? It rained Friday and Saturday, shortening our trip to the zoo and postponing my long to Sunday. But Sunday was gorgeous! I started on a DIY project out in the garage and started cleaning out flower beds. I could get used to the springlike weather!! I hope it’s here to stay!

 Speaking of sticking around….the recipe for Panera’s mac & cheese used to be on their website, but they’ve since taken in down. Why? I don’t know. But luckily I jotted it down before it disappeared! And now I’m going to share it with you!

Now I will admit this doesn’t taste exactly like the mac & cheese you can get a the restaurant, but it’s pretty darn close! And it’s good! Both girls approve (and Cupcake insists I use big rainbow noodles). And this makes a lot of noodles, so prepare to feed a crowd or plan to enjoy leftovers.
