I was at work when I received an email from Shopbop about the sale and couldn’t wait to share the news! Obviously, I don’t do any blogging at work, however this was important. I thought my 2 year old Blackberry Curve was going to combust when I hit the Publish button. (Husband – if you are reading, I want the iPhone!!!) I don’t know if you’ve all “bopped” before, but I love shopping there. I can tell you from experience, they have great customer service and an utterly fabulous selection of clothes. I hope that some of you were able to benefit from the Stopbop Sale. If you got something, I’d love to see it!
I finally got to making Macaroni and Cheese! I tweaked my own recipe a little bit to make it creamier and I’m very happy with the results….
Macaroni and Cheese
1 pound Elbow Macaroni (Cavatappi is best)
1/2 cup flour
4 cups Skim Milk (yes, skim!)
1/2 pint of Heavy Cream
2 cups of Gruyere Cheese
1 1/2 cups of Coby Jack
1/4 cup of Mozzarella
1/2 pound Maple Bacon
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Italian Style Breadcrumbs
*Cook the bacon in a frying pan, once cooked set aside
*Stirring constantly, add the flour.
I hope, if you try this, you enjoy it.
In other news, opinions are needed: I received news yesterday that I cannot wear my contact lenses for an entire week. This was devastating. I have nothing against glasses, per say, just when I have to wear them. They hurt my ears and slide down my nose…ugh. So, in order to make myself feel better, I decided that it may be time to get some new frames! Shopping makes everything better!! Tomorrow I thought I’d go check out these bad boys:
I think they’ree very geek chic. We’ll see if I can pull of this look tomorrow. The best part is that Lenscrafters is having a 30% off sale until October 30. YES!
