intro, recipe and question

My name is: Anna My age is: 20 I live in: Utah My relationship status is: engaged I live in an: apartment My children and/or pets: two toads, and a cat soon My obsession of the moment is: for the first time in my life, I have no fandom obsession like usual! My favorite "guilty pleasure" is: trashy daytime shows like Maury My favorite domestic activity is: cooking and laundry The domestic chore I hate is: cleaning toilets Are you a beginner domestic diva or an experienced pro?: just a newbie! I found this community through: LJ interest search My favorite recipe is (put behind an LJ cut if it is lengthy): Homemade mac and cheese! 2 T butter 3 T flour 1/8 t salt 1/8 t pepper 1/4 dry mustard (optional) 2 C cheese 2 C noodles Melt butter, then add flour, salt, and pepper. Whisk about pan until smooth. Let it bubble for 2 minutes or so. Add milk all at once. Keep whisking until it comes to a boil. Add cheese, and stir until melted. Serve on top of noodles. I also have a question. I always try to make the apartment look nice before my fiancé comes home from work - wipe down the counters, pick up anything off the floor, open the curtains to let the sun in, spray some Febreze and/or light a candle, and generally tidy up, along with sprucing up my appearance. But I feel like there's more I could be doing, but I can't think of anything! I can't start dinner because he never comes home at the same time. Tips, anyone? What do you do? (Also, back to the dinner thing, how do I keep food warm without ruining it?)
