Aunt Toby's killer mac n cheese


From my darling Aunt Toby:

Heat oven to 375.

Nuke 1/2 of a cube of butter
Add 1/4 cup of flour right into the measuring cup with the butter
Add 2 cups of milk.
Nuke and stir until thick. Check often, it will boil over.
Cook 8 oz of macaroni. [I use 12 oz. of whatever pasta I have on hand.]
I use jarlsburg, sharp cheddar and havarti.
Layer macaroni, cheese, etc.
Top with white sauce.
Bake until brown on top. (About 35 minutes)
Easy and 1,000 per bite!

depraved electorate

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president."

This quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2010.

My kids are making me smarter

I was at a restaurant last week and there was a stack of Trivial Pursuit cards on the table.  I told Jamie to read some to me.  I normally stink at Trivial Pursuit.  I ended up answering about 80% of the questions correctly and all except one were things I have learned since home schooling my kids.  As I like to say, "I'm learning so much!"  I looked at Brandon and said, "Dude, you guys are making me smarter!"  He responded, "Thanks, Mom!"  Like he's teaching me...which he is...sorta.  ;)
