Feeling a Little Caprese Lately!


I get these cravings sometimes and lately it's been all things caprese.  I love tomatoes, basil and mozzarella with a side of balsamic and vinegar.  Recently I had a Caprese Panini which had the typical tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese and they added pesto.  Yummy!!  So I made myself one at home recently and it was pretty good.  Yesterday, Mason and I caught up with the hubby for lunch.  There is a new restaurant called Elbows.  We'd heard good things about it.  It's all macaroni and cheese meals.  Guess what they had???  Caprese macaroni and cheese.  I tried it....it was calling my name!  It was good and very rich!!  Hubby had the hamburger macaroni and cheese which reminded me of a good version of Hamburger Helper.  Other choices were jalapeno mac, hotwings mac, swiss mac, truffle mac, spinach & artichoke mac, lobster mac and cajun mac to name a few!  Overall, the original tasted the best!  Nothing better than some plain ol' mac and cheese.  Although I think I'll make it at home from now on!   $24.95 for a mac and cheese lunch was a bit much!  So what are you craving??  

P.S.  I always crave me some good ol' red licorice!!  Mason loves it too!  :)

$25.00 for Mac 'n Cheese??? Yep, I think I'd buy myself a box for
.99 and add a few toppings:)

Lately I have been craving BLT sandwiches. Our county has some amazingly sweet, red tomatoes at the road side stands. The mac and cheese is made quite often here with all the grandchildren visits. I smiled when you stated you crave red licorice...enjoy!
