This is a fun idea for either a main dish item in a buffet, or to serve as an appetizer for a party, shower, or other event. These are a bit more “special” than regular mac ‘n cheese, but still have the same appeal for those who crave a little comfort food. Small portions are easy to serve (and hard to resist!)
For the recipe - go to:
If you're interested - here are a few things we did at the shower. Thanks to my wonderful daughters & daughter-in-law who put their heads together (by phone & internet & Pinterest) - this turned out to be a really fun night!
|Rachel loves everything BUTTERFLIES...|
We had fun rounding up the butterfly LED string lights, poking butterflies into
the wheat grass pots (instructions are HERE), and spray painting the plates we found
at DI. We used a fun little item called Serve It Up to stack the plates into tiered stands.
|Using Rachel's nursery colors (orange, purple, and pink) - I had so much fun|
making this butterfly quilt. Can't wait to see my new little granddaughter in it...
|This game is self-explanatory - but it was so much fun.|
|The high chair (my husband made this for our kids - it folds down into a rocking chair)|
made a great place to set up the Baby Scents game. Guessing what each baby food was
was much harder than you would have expected.
|My daughter Aryn adapted one of our favorite games (Telestrations)|
using baby terms. Like the telephone game, but drawing what you pass along.
|My sister sketched out (what she thought) was "Baby Blanket"|
My guess? "Diaper Pail".
|We won't say what this one was...|
|Rachel is going to make a beautiful mother. Can't wait.|
