Forget the diet and try this

So, normally we eat pretty healthy around my house…..normally? Tonight was not the case. I didn’t have anything to cook and last minute came up with what I’m going to call Loaded BACON Mac N Cheese. It was the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth! Not kidding.

Boil 8 oz noodles

Fry 6 slices bacon

Cook 1 lb hamburger meat (optional. the bacon is a mus)

In a sauce pan combine 3 tb butter, 1/4 c AP flour and 2.5 cups of milk, 2.5 cups of cheese and a handful of green onions. (I may have left in  a little bacon grease too ?) Sprinkle kosher salt to taste.

Pour over noodles in a casserole dish. Add 1 cup of cheese and brown.

Dont think about the calories, just eat!

 

 

 


Crazy For Denim

A good denim top has become one of my personal must have items. They are extremely versatile and can be styled with pretty much any and everything! Take note that I did say a “good” denim top. 🙂 I have found that all denim tops are not created equal! If not careful, they can look cheap and very dated. But do not fret! Because we have the perfect ones in stock right now! Here are a few looks that we put together.

This is one of my favorite ways to wear a denim top. All of those sleeveless summer dresses that you thought you had to retire for fall? Not anymore! Just throw on a denim top over and you are good to go!

Ok. Let me just say, this skirt is ah-mazing! Who would have thought a good ole denim shirt would look so fabulous with a TULLE skirt! Yes, Mam! You can add a denim top with almost any skirt, casual or formal and it completely changes the look up. Love this!

Here is a good way to keep those white jeans around after labor day! No longer do you have to abide by those silly rules! You can pair any vest over a denim top and it will look perfectly put together.

This last look is simple, chic and comfortable. We did black leggings, a long white cami, boots and yes, a denim top! Which is your favorite?
