Shrimp Pepper Jack Mac Cheese ~ Lightened Up Mac & Cheese with a Kick! Topped with Crunchy Shrimp!
Growing up my family almost always took a summer vacation. It usually wasn’t super fancy but it was a vacation where we got to leave the hustle and bustle of the real world and go on a little adventure. Mom always made a point of making this happen from my memories and Dad was drug away from the farm for a few days, which trust me is a hard thing to accomplish so kudos to my mom! You see farming is not my Dad’s “job” it’s his lifestyle. Eat, Drink, Breathe. Pretty much sums it up! It’s a good thing he seems to love it because if you didn’t it would be a miserable life. I’m so glad he found his passion in life, which sometimes I reflect on and wonder if I found it!
Oh don’t get me wrong we had fun on vacation but there were always moments that I now look back on and think man I was a real stinker. I antagonized my brother in the back seat of the car way to frequently getting on our parents nerves, I’m sure I whined way more than I want to remember and was a brat. Good thing I mostly remember just being with the family and doing our little “special” things on vacation like finding license plates from all 50 states, finding the letters of the alphabet while driving etc. This was way before you ever had such things as DVD players or tablets in the car! We made our own fun!
