Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese

First things first, the 5K was awesome. I had so much fun and I can't wait to run another one. I came in 19th for my age group with a total time of 35:28. Considering there was a massive hill at the end, I'm very proud of my time and finishing strong. I'll post photos as soon as they're available.
On to other things, pumpkin macaroni and cheese was on the menu for the weekend. I figured we needed some carbs the night before the race and this fit the bill.
I found this recipe on We Are Not Martha. Head over to their site for the details. I made a couple swaps though. I used regular macaroni noodles, white cheddar cheese and sour cream instead of yogurt. It was delicious and will definitely be in my dinner menu rotation.

What did you do over the weekend? Any races? Make anything delicious?
