Clouds/Heat ~ The White House ~ Picture of the Day ~ Breakfast Casserole for 12 ~ Sister Marion ~ Del Albright ~ National Mac & Cheese Day

Good 65º clear sunny morning. 
Yesterday the clouds moved in and it looked like rain on the way, but they spread out and no rain. It did keep it a tad cooler with the clouds blocking the sun.

The heat yesterday was at 73º at 9am. By noon it was 90º. And by 4:30 it was 103º.

The White House is one of the most iconic buildings in the world. Every U.S. president since John Adams has called the White House home during his administration. Congress named the White House as an American national museum in the 1960s, preserving its antiquities for coming generations. To maintain the White House in good condition requires constant upkeep. To cover the president's home with a new coat of paint requires 570 gallons of paint. The White House interior includes 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms, 147 windows, 28 fireplaces, 412 doors, 8 staircases and 3 elevators. Source:

One of the classic comfort foods earns a place of honor on July 14.  It is National Mac and Cheese Day!
Made with macaroni noodles, cream or milk, and the golden goodness of cheese, mac and cheese shines as a side dish but can stand on it’s own as a main dish as well. From the classic mac and cheese with cheddar or American cheeses to the spicy cowboy mac with bacon and jalapenos, there’s a combination for everyone.  Mix up the cheeses or load up on seasonings, set the broiler for a couple of minutes at the end of the cooking time and let the cheese get a nice toasty crust
