Traditional Macaroni and Cheese

We had a visitor last night…Not just any visitor though…we had a 7-year-old visitor her name is Jaden, she is the daughter of my friend Fawn. Fawn Dawn is what I call her. She moved far away from me to Live with Dorothy in Kansas. My fellow wineo and picture taker, cooking friend moved away from me. But miss Jaden was here this week to visit her dad for Spring Break. So I set up a little date with Normy and Me and Jaden. What a great time we had. Jaden is 7 going on 27. She is so sassy and you feel like you are talking to an adult.
Check out some of the good times Fawn and I (and Jaden) have had together when they lived here…

Sooooo since Miss Jaden was coming over I made an extra special dinner just for her. I made BLT’s and Mac and Cheese. She also LOVES bacon (smart girl) and she likes mac and cheese, so thought that would be the perfect kid meal to make.
So Jaden came and packed us a lunch for the next day, and she brought us a card to say Thanks for having her over.
