Great Car Care How to Make an Old Car Run Like New #WalmartAuto

It may come as a surprise to many but I still have my first vehicle. And it still runs great! But figuring out how to make an old car run like new didn’t come easily. It took a lot of regular checks and maintenance.

Luckily my husband came into my life shortly after I purchased my truck and helped me by reminding me of the fact that cars need things like oil changes regularly. I started to pay more attention to that little sticker that the oil change place put on my windshield.

And then when I hit a coyote on a late night driving home to the boonies and my truck was put out of commission he jumped at the chance to help fix and rebuild the truck.

Something I always need in the mornings is a good protein packed fuel to get me going for the day.

Grown Up Mac and Cheese with Bacon

This adapted mac and cheese has been a favorite of mine since I first started making it back when I was pregnant with my son. It’s the ultimate comfort food and is something I know will always please a crowd.

With the addition of bacon, and the panko crust, this mac and cheese is taken from ordinary to extraordinary. But I really think that the secret ingredient is the pinch of nutmeg. It really does change the flavor for the better!

If you’re a huge fan of mac and cheese I highly suggest you try this grown up mac and cheese with bacon. It’s well worth it.  [Read more...]
