Last Night's Dinner

So this week I did something I never do: planned my meals for the week.  I went to the grocery store and bought all the food I would need for a week's worth of dinners. Last night we had BBQ chicken, mac and cheese, corn bread, coleslaw and baked beans.  It was a lot of food!  I only made the coleslaw and baked beans because tonight we are having hamburgers on the grill so I figured those two could double for both meals. Aren't I clever? :) The chicken was sooo delicious.  Aus marinated with a new Argentine rub from Williams-Sonoma and it was soooo good.
Most of my pictures are pretty bad and I forgot to take half of them, but you get the idea. Jiffy is definitely the best corn bread there is, hands down. So sweet and delicious!

My new favorite wine Aus discovered a few weeks ago. It's a Moscato, so very sweet but mm-mmm good! (and, yes, I like cheap wine, I'll take it anyway I can get it!)
Cooking the Mac and Cheese...I used the good ol' Kraft Home-style again. We had the four-cheese this time and I think it was better!
Ready to go in the oven with bread crumbs and shredded cheddar on top.

These pictures look kind of weird/gross - sorry I'm going to do better!

For the coleslaw I used my aunt's super simple recipe. I grated a head of cabbage and mixed in mayo (until right consistency) couples spoon full's of sugar until it tasted right and a tbsp of sweet pickle juice. Lots of S&P of course! It is simple but oh-so-good!
