We're back from our Thanksgiving trip and I totally missed my kitchen! (Ok I missed my gym too!) I was pretty tired from traveling but that didn't stop me from making Emeril's Kicked Up Sausage Mac and Cheese! There's something about being in the kitchen that totally energizes me. (Well, maybe it's the thought of knowing something yummy was on its way!) I didn't have any bell pepper so I left that out and I also used fresh breadcrumbs since I always have some in the freezer. It was the perfect combination of spicy and cheesy but the crunchy topping is my favorite part! What a great meal to welcome us back home and I'm so glad the weekend's not over yet!
