The meal

The meal

This past weekend I had the kitchen to myself so I figured I might as well use it. So I decided while I had the time and the resources I’d make a semi-homemade meal. I call it semi-homemade because the corn muffins came out of a Jiffy box and yes, Jiffy is my favorite brand of corn muffin mix! The whole idea sparked when I was sent this Eat Barbecue BBQ to review. I knew that slow cooker bbq chicken was an easy recipe so I figured, why not? I’ve always wanted to make homemade baked macaroni & cheese. So I found an easy recipe that wasn’t too complicated, so here it is! These are great recipes for a Sunday meal!
