I usually serve mac & cheese as a main dish, but lately I got to thinking about rounding it out as a meal with a protein and veggie. A recent post on my cooking board mentioned serving mac & cheese with ham, roasted broccoli and applesauce, which I thought sounded great as a Sunday dinner.
The ham is fully cooked from the supermarket, so all I had to do was reheat it. The mac & cheese was made using this recipe. For the broccoli I tried something new - I cut a few lemons into slices and tossed those with the broccoli, garlic, oil, salt and pepper. It was a delicious way to prepare broccoli and really took on a nice lemon undertone. I was a little wary of how the applesauce would go with everything else, but it was perfect. A nice, homey meal.
