Last night I ate inside of a restaurant for the first time since late February 2020.
I was uncomfortable the entire time and couldn’t even have a cocktail since I had to drive 2 1/2 hours home.
I know it will get easier, but I was so overwhelmed that I couldn’t even fully appreciate eating a lovely meal that I hadn’t prepared, with fun people who weren’t in my immediate family. Man, what a messed up time this has been. I hope you are being very kind to yourself.
If, like me, you have done a ton of kitchen duty over the past 15 months you may be feeling a bit burned out. Here’s an easy and fabulous casserole to feed the crew with hardly any effort.
Pizza Mac & Cheese cuts some corners by using prepared macaroni and cheese. Pile on some ground beef and pizza toppings, bake, then dig in.
Pizza Mac & Cheese
1 (7-1/4 oz) package macaroni and cheese dinner mix or 1 (12 oz) package of frozen macaroni and cheese
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
14 ounces pizza sauce
1/2 cup sliced pepperoni
1. Prepare the boxed macaroni and cheese according to package directions. If using the frozen kind, microwave according to package directions.
2. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
3. Transfer prepared macaroni and cheese to a greased 2 1/2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Top with the beef mixture, pizza sauce, pepperoni and remaining cheeses.
4. Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 30-35 minutes or until heated through.

Liverpool-based artist Pizzagirl (aka Liam Brown) has a new album ‘softcore mourn’ coming out this July. “Bullet Train”, the second single released, is pure electro-dance goodness. It’s technically sad, but it makes me very happy.
“Oh no, you kissed your plastic surgeon
With lips I know he’s working on”
