meatless monday: broccoli mac and cheese

it can't be beat

it can’t be beat

i’ve noticed at work that the lunch ladies will often comment about how the dinners they cook at home seem to match up with the menus we serve at work. i believe we unconsciously think “mmmmm chili” but then we don’t want the usda approved recipe chili we want our homemade recipes. for me this week it was cheesey broccoli mac & cheese. the kids won’t touch it at work but i used to love the stuff. now i grab a box of vegan mac & cheese mix, stem fresh broccoli and i have yummy cheesey dinner. and of course to make sure all food groups are present some apple slices!
