Noodle Brownies

Marshall and I first discovered fried mac-and-cheese bites on vacation in 2005.  This wonderful little restaurant in New Bern, NC had them.  If you haven’t heard of these yet, it’s maccaroni and cheese that’s been made, cooled, cut into shapes(squares, triangles, whatever you want reall), battered and fried.  That’s right.  Let’s take mac-and-cheese and FRY IT!  Somebody’s a genious!!  Anyway, now Sonic has these on their menu.  The kids were hungry, we were on the go, and I needed something easy and portable.  They LOVED it!  Tucker, however, couldn’t quite figure out what this square of deliciousness was…so he decided to call them “noodle brownies”.   Now the ones at Sonic aren’t nearly as good as the ones in that little restaurant, but they were pretty darn tasty!  So the next time you’re looking for a delicious and (not-so) nutritious snack, think noodle brownies!

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

We’ve decorated our Christmas tree…and *tried* to take pictures for Christmas Cards, but nobody seems to want to cooperate for either of these!  Tucker wants to un-decorate the tree.  Emmie just wants to walk around ringing a bell.  And do you know how hard it is to get both of them to look at me so that I can take a picture???  Oh, well…we’ll try again another day-maybe even this afternoon after naps!  But for now, here are some pictures from the tree decorating!
