Cheeseburger Macaroni

Cheeseburger Macaroni ~ Old-Fashioned comfort food & so quick to make as well ! #PastaDish #Cheeseburger #QuickAndEasyRecipe

This Cheeseburger Macaroni is perfect for a weeknight dinner. In a way, I am fortunate to stay at home {not by choice though!} so I normally have loads of time during the day to get dinner and dessert ready.

I should say, had loads of time, because since my health became worse, I sleep a lot - and I mean A LOT ! Roy and the kids would only wake me on a very rare occasion and if it is something serious which can not wait.

Therefore, my days have become so messed up, I wake up at different times, and also go to sleep at weird times .. weird as in 4pm in the afternoon.

That is why I am grateful that I have built up quite a lot of Quick and Easy Recipes , not only on the blog but also in my notes. This makes it much easier for Roy and the kids to get something together quickly and easy.

At the moment I have 30 posts in draft, with most of them delicious, yes, but not so much healthy. Healthy in the way as to what I am allowed to eat nowadays, which is a major change and sometimes downright confusing - like, I am allowed to eat Lemons and Limes, but not Oranges ?!?  Point here is, you will start to see a mixture of healthy and less healthy {oh, just think a nice rich cheesecake :-( }recipes - this depends on how I feel to share on which days.
