Things I love to eat

Far and away, when we share the news the most frequently-asked-question behind “How are you feeling?,” is “Are there certain things you like to eat?” 

Yes. Unfortunately, the list is pretty similar to the things I’ve always liked too eat — but try not to eat ALL OF THE TIME. That’s a little harder to do right now, but at least feeling better has made it easier for me to make it to the gym often enough for a little uptick in:


  • Macaroni & cheese
  • French onion dip & chips
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Dairy Queen blizzards
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Stuffed baked potato skins
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • (Quiero) Taco Bell

You get the idea. While the regular box version usually does the trick, here’s my favorite home-made version I’ll be making next time, courtesy of Aunt Sherie. Yum.

Macaroni & Cheese

  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 oz dried radiatore or rigatoni pasta
  • 1 3-ounce pkg cream cheese cut up and softened
  • Freshly grated Parmesan

In saucepan combine whipping cream, rosemary, salt and black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat.  Boil gently, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes  or until mixture is reduced to 1-1/3 cups, stirring occasionally.  Cook pasta according to pkg.  Drain and keep warm.  Stir cooked pasta, and cheese, into cream mixture.  Cook and stir 2 minutes until heated through.  Serve immediately.  Sprinkle with fresh grated Parm, if desired.  Makes 4 servings.
