Microwave cheese sauce

I am back! The last two weeks have been a bit crazy. My grandpa ran into some issues, so I had to run the house while on my spring break. Coming back to school was nutty, especially since my sleep schedule was messed up royally. I have finally reeled everything in and am now back to semi-decent schedule. I was happy to have a cancelled class today, because it gave me more time to myself. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous lately. However, the school seems to think the heating still needs to be on. I don't understand it.

Another thing that I realized today is I am 7 weeks from graduation. Eek! It's scary yet exciting, and I know I need to get going on my resume by going to Career Services so they can help me out. I watched a new series called Fairly Legal. It's interesting and I like it so far. I've been watching movies lately and am trying to shrink my "want to watch" list down quite a bit. We'll see how well I do.

Even though life is throwing curve balls at me, I still have found time to cook and create new stuff. The recipe today is a simple cheese sauce that can be made in the microwave. I used this cheese sauce to make my cheesy corn dish. This sauce could be used over anything that you want cheese sauce on, really. I hope you like it!
