Trader Joe's French Onion Macaroni & Cheese
 
When Chef Dolores was out shopping, she picked up a package of Trader Joe's French Onion Macaroni & Cheese to try as a side dish. We enjoyed it and you may wish to sample it. The package says it contains 2.5 servings but it should easily be enough for 3 servings as a side.

Beer Recommendation: Poor Richard's Spruce Ale
One of the very interesting selections of beer from Yards Brewing Company in Philadelphia is Poor Richard's Spruce Ale. This might be the perfect ale to take on a camping trip. Click on the link to reach the website. Drink responsibly: 5% Alc. by Vol.
Based on Benjamin Franklin’s original recipe, this one-of-a-kind deep amber ale calls for barley, molasses and essence of spruce. Locally sourced organic blue spruce clippings are steeped in a kettle to create an ale as approachable and engaging as the man himself.
