Fondue set - washed and ready for action!
The close of 2012 is upon us, and we’ve decided to ring in the New Year with the little ones tonight.  How fitting is it that as I’m writing this, my iTunes has randomly selected Jellyfish’s “I Wanna Stay Home”?

Mid-week Menu: Ham it up with Creamy Pasta Shells with Ham, Mushrooms, and Peas

Mid-week Menu: Ham it up with Creamy Pasta Shells with Ham, Mushrooms, and Peas

When the weather turns cooler, we turn away from simple salads to heartier fare. Enter mac n’ cheese. It is a classic comfort food that my kids will happily eat.
