Sausage Mac n Cheese

6- Sausage Mac n CheesePin

 

Alhamdulillah, my parents arrived for a month last Friday, and as usual came with a lot of eatables from back home, though the quantity was not very high as I kept reminding umma not to bring too much that I would be forced to throw away because of nobody eating them. Whenever my parents come, we have a constant flow of guests, unlike the other days, so the kitchen was burning more as well. A good sign, isn’t it? The main thing for the kids is that they have their grandparents to come back to from school, and Azza was saying, “Nalla bhakshanam kittum!” (We will get good food!) With the way she said, I felt my whole cooking effort melting into thin air! πŸ™ I have always been writing how tough it is to please my kids, they prefer umma’s food much more than my food that sometimes I do get irritated with them for being so choosy. Hehe… maybe I am just jealous! πŸ˜‰ But InShaAllah, once they grow up, I am hoping they will appreciate my efforts as well… πŸ™‚

 

Meanwhile, today being the 19th of the month, it is my Azza’s 5th birthday, Alhamdulillah. At times, looking at her, I wonder how superfast years are flying. She is a blaberry child, very strong despite her lean appearance and really knows how to get things done. I can’t even be strict with her, if she decides she wont do it, then she just wont! Sometimes, umma tells me that the second child is most of the time a tough nut to crack, so I truly believe in it now! Hehe… She is always the lighter to start fights with Rasha and both of them together can make me grow crazy with their WWF style fights. It actually scares me most of the time as Rasha is on the heavier side and I tell her to buck off in case Azza tempts her, but still kids are kids, right? πŸ™‚ I don’t want her to be less naughty but just want her naughtiness to be streamlined into constructiveness, InShaAllah… Wishing my little sweetheart all the very best that Allah can give her in her life! πŸ™‚

I have already shared a baked mac and cheese version before. This one is a slightly modified version of mac and cheese simply to make my kids eat! I added the sausages so that they would finish off their plates and Alhamdulillah, they did. Do feel free to substitute with chunks of cooked chicken. Since I was too lazy to do that, I went on with adding sausages. Hehe… Mac and cheese is always comfort food and the easiest way to have a filling dinner in no time. πŸ™‚
