Throw-Together Macaroni Casserole

This is a quick and easy meal to throw together for your family on busy nights.  To me, this is a yummier version of Cheesy Hamburger Helper.  I got this from a friend of mine, who's mom used to make it when she was growing up.

2 boxes Macaroni and Cheese
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 can cream of chicken

Prepare macaroni and cheese according to box directions.  Mix together the hamburger, macaroni and cream of chicken.  Heat through and serve.

This meal is so easy to prepare and I'm sure everyone in your family will love it.  I served this with some fresh green beans.  It makes great leftovers for your lunch the next day as well.

I continue to participate in the Brown Bag Challenge that is being sponsored by the Healthy Eats Blog at  It has been a great way to make sure I always bring something from home to eat for lunch.  I am hoping to make this habit and continue brown bagging my lunch even after the month of September is over.  This is a great way to save money and control your calorie intake and portion control.  ENJOY!

PS I finished my first 5K on 9/10/11.  I finished in 47 minutes.  I walked most of it but end up running about the last half mile.  My goal for next year is to run the entire thing.  Time to get back in the gym and continue with my healthy makeover!
