Show Us Your Life- Dinner Recipes

I am excited about this week's Show Us Your Life at Kelly's Korner! This week's post is our favorite dinner recipes. I am really beginning to enjoy cooking. I am not great at it. I don't do it near enough. But I really enjoy it. Hope you love the recipes!
The first recipe I want to share is one I got in college. One of my friends made her mother's Mac and Cheese for something and I thought it was the most delicious thing I ever ate. I have probably made it a 100 times since I got the recipe. It's perfect for guests or for a nice meal with your husband!
Scrumptious Mac & Cheese
1 (8 oz.) pkg. elbow macaroni
2 c. cottage cheese
1 (8 oz) sour cream
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp. salt
2 c. sharp cheddar cheese
Cook and rinse the macaroni and set aside. Combine cottage cheese, sour cream, egg, salt, and cheddar cheese. Add macaroni and stir well. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 2-qt. casserole dish. Bake at 350* for 45 min. Serves 6 to 8 people.
Another recipe we love is fried rice. I am a major fan of Chinese food. There is nothing better than an egg roll and hot and sour soup. Yum. My mom had this recipe from a friend who lived in China for a while. It's the closest thing I have found to restaurant quality.
Fried Rice
4 eggs
1 t. salt
2-3 T. vegetable oil
5-10 sliced green onions
1/2 pd. chicken
1 pkg. frozen peas
2-3 c. cooked rice
Mix the eggs until partly cooked. Remove from the skillet. Saute green onions, chicken, and frozen peas. Add soy sauce. Stir in cooked rice. Add eggs. Continue to saute until done!
Finally, salsa. Brian and I have Mexican creations all the time. Either homemade quesadillas, fajitas, or tacos. The major ingredient for all of these is salsa. I am not a fan of store bought salsa, so this is a quick and easy recipe that is great for any Mexican treat, or simply for a party or get together. Everyone loves it!
Spectacular Salsa
2 cans Del Monte original stewed tomatoes (Do not substitute brands.)
2 jalapenos from a jar
1 t. salt
1 t. garlic
1 t. cumin
2 palmfuls fresh cilantro
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Use a blender to create the consistency you love!
Now to my dilemma of the day- it was a student's birthday again today. We had chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing and a crimson A (for Alabama) on top. I was seriously unsure what I should do. The immature part of me said "Ashley, don't eat that. You will be supporting the other team. Who cares if you offend a child." The more mature, chocolate loving part of me said, "You can't just NOT eat this cupcake. You have been cupcake depraved in school for the past 2 years. Ignore it. It doesn't mean they will win." The mature side won. I used my finger to smear away the A, then ate a delicious and wonderful cupcake. War Eagle.

I love my life.
I hope you enjoyed the recipes! Have a blessed evening!
