.........love this thread.

OT: I just bought my first two blueberry plants and they have oodles of flowers. Any hints from those with experience growing...I have read that they like pine mulch and to avoid adding manure to the soil. Anything else....Thanks.

Re: Recipes if you're trying to reduce prepackaged foods

Macaroni and Cheese (no bake).

I start boiling water and getting stuff ready for the cheese sauce. Once the water's boiling and I add a pound of noodles, I start cooking the sauce.

Melt 2T butter, then add 2T flour, 1/4 t ground mustard, 1/4 t pepper, and 1/2 t salt (it might need more salt and pepper but I'd start there) and stir everything until it's all bubbly. Slowly add and stir 1c milk. I try to do it slow enough that it thickens as I go, but I get impatient towards the end. Stir off and on until it starts to boil, then stir continuously for one minute. Turn off the heat and add a generous amount of shredded sharp cheddar cheese (medium tastes bland). Maybe about a cup. Stir and add to drained, unrinsed noodles. Total time, about 15 minutes. Feeds the four of us once.

I just got this from a friend (we've had it at her house and it's fantastic!), and what I think I will be doing is making a blend of the dry ingredients for us to scoop from quickly (and so that DH will actually consider making it).

Great thread! Thanks!!
