Blurr Week Part 1

Ever have those weeks where life feels like a blurr??? I can't believe we have arrived to Sunday already.... Where did the week go?? Let me catch you up on some life stuff..

This week, exercise has hit the tank, which isn't the best for marathon training.. I got a 3mile run in and 1 yoga workout ... Not the best.. I am striving for more this week... I thinking the yucky weather has kept me from getting out there.. The rain has been horrible this week.. I hope for better weather this week.. Saturday we have 17 miles! YIKES!

I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by someone at Progressive Soup asking me if I would be willing to try their new starter sauces?? I was more than thrilled and have made my first recipe! 

          They sent me this entire box with five different cans! It has different recipes on each can, plus a little recipe book and a great wooden spoon!

Here are step by step directions with pictures for your convenience! This is so easy and a great carb loading meal for runners who love Mac & Cheese!

Here is what you will need to get started:

1 can of Progressive Creamy Three Cheese Cooking Sauce
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 teaspoon of garlic
1 1/2 Shredded Sharp Cheese
2 oz of Cheese Loaf Shredded
Progressive Italian Style Crumbs
1/2 Red Bell Pepper if desired.

First, you need the Cheese Recipe Starter cooking sauce can. Pre-Heat the oven to 400 degrees and spray a 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.

In a pot, boil water for the noodles...

In a 3 quart sauce pan, heat cooking sauce, milk and garlic to a bowl. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until it is melted...

Stir in pasta and bell pepper.. You can add Bacon too, but I don't like bacon, so I omitted that from the recipe.

Put the pasta in your casserole dish and bake in the over for 20 minutes .

After it is done baking, let it set for about 10 minutes or until it is cool and then sprinkle on the Progress Italian Style Bread crumbs with your hand and you will love this Mac and Cheese!! So delicious! 

Thank you to the wonderful people at Progressive Soups! I cannot wait to make more recipes with the other sauces.. Keep checking back for another recipe soon!

I've got part 2 coming tomorrow of Blurr week..

How has your exercise workout been going??

My husband would love that! I'm not a huge cheese eater, but it does look pretty good :)
