Bacon, Mac and Cheese Melt

My solution to, "What's for dinner?" I couldn't decide and either could the boys, so I doubled down with this two-in-one recipe. The Bacon Mac and Cheese Melt. To keep thing interesting, I added pan seared jalapeños. By interesting, I mean I added them to the little guys melt. Of course, I warned him, but he didn't heed my warning, nor did he listen to me when I said "drink milk if it's too hot."  He grabbed for the glass of water. Yikes. And while I felt bad for him, I couldn't help chuckling. Poor kid. Luckily, I had one without the jalapeños ready. Although he's promised to "get me back" when I least expect. I can't wait. No doubt he will have a little help from his mom. And that's dinner in my home.
