Caramelized onions, panchetta, mushroom mac and cheese

Growing up I used to love eating Macaroni and cheese. KD is something that kids will not refuse to eat. Although its full of chemicals and additives. I have an adult version which is sure to please young and old. Best of all it can be reheated in the microwave with a little bit of milk.

For the recipe you'll need

125g of panchetta
1 yellow onion thinly sliced
8 sage leaves
1 1/2 cup of mushrooms (cremini or white or both)
2 Tablespoons of butter
1 Tablespoon of oil
1/4 cup of flour
1 1/2 cup of milk
1 cup of sharp cheddar
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
1 1/4 cup of macaroni or any short pasta

Step 1, add a tablespoon of oil to the pan once its hot you add the panchetta. Once the panchetta is cooked thoroughly, you remove it from the pan. Then you add the butter to pan to cook the onions. During the you boil the water to cook the pasta.




Step 2: You cook the thinly sliced onion once its translucent you add the mushrooms and sage.








Step 3: You add the milk and the flour. Your best to mix the flour to the milk in the measuring cup. It helps it avoid becoming crumbly. Then you add the cheese to the pan.



Step 4: You add the pasta to the pan, along with the panchetta. Make sure you mix it well.

It's been a while!

It's been a while since I last wrote. Lots has happened since I lost wrote a post. Now I'm back planning to create content based on a debt free life. Yes, its possible to live debt free and enjoy some financial freedom. I might not be a financial advisor but I can enlighten you about how we manage our finances, lifestyle and my cooking.

I have a passion for spending time in the kitchen creating recipes. It's something that I missed quite a bit when I had returned to work. It wasn't about going back to work to make money it was more to go back help bring my skills to a corporate environment. Although it didn't work out the job was a bad fit for me, being creative it was hard to fit into the corporate box.

We do thrift due to the environmental costs but also the financial costs. At times its cheaper to buy used rather than new. Yes, you might go to the mall and see the most recent fashion trends but they come at a financial and environmental stain. I will update this…

Tortelini with cherry tomatoes

Some days are easier than others, when I have motivation I'll make a significant meal which takes a lot of time. Other times I'll just make either a premade chicken pot pie or chicken filets and fries. This recipe is good to use cherry tomatoes from the garden although its good for anytime of year. With our resources we can buy greenhouse tomatoes. Not only does it help buy local but it lowers transport cost. Although its move affordable during the summer months than during the winter months.
To create this recipe, you'll need 
A pack of store bought beef tortellini 1 1/2 cup of  cherry tomatoes 1 french shallot a clove of garlic 1 colored pepper (yellow, red or orange) 2 Leeks (White parts, although to save time you can buy prepackaged ones). 1/2 cup of white wine











For us it's a simple healthy recipe when I don't want to cook or spend hours in the kitchen. You can always add some cheese to it. Enjoy!
