Remember when I mentioned I was making my one serving macaroni and cheese for another recipe? Well, this is it.

A few weeks ago, we had the macaroni and cheese grilled cheese sandwich from The Grilled Cheese Truck. I thought it was tasty, but something I could easily recreate at home. So I did.

I’ve been a little obsessed with grilled cheese lately, so expect to see some more variations in future posts.

 Yesterday our new patio set arrived. And of course, today we had a crazy storm. The weather was definitely strange today. Most of the day was extremely hot, in the continual heat wave that has lasted more than a week now. I didn’t actually realize how bad it was until I read that they’ve even shortened the school schedules. I never experienced any shortened days due to heat before! Then in the afternoon it started to rain. I had heard of the possibility of a storm, but it seemed so unlikely given how hot and sunny it was. And then suddenly the rain turned into a full-on storm, with thunder and extreme winds. The winds were strong enough to actually knock over a bunch of our fruit trees, though luckily we were able to save them.

Anyhow, I was able to make the macaroni and cheese in the microwave and only had to turn on the stove for a few minutes to heat up the sandwich and make the bread crunchy and golden. I was pretty pleased with the outcome. It definitely wasn’t hot soup weather, so we ate this with cold milk instead.
