Comfort Food: Mac ‘n Cheese Edition

“What is this giant pile of cheese for?” you may be asking yourselves.

It is for very, very delicious things, let me assure you.

You see, I have found a “healthified” mac ‘n cheese at the local grocery store.

Annie’s Mac & Cheese has a fairly short ingredient list. Its only flaw appears to be the low fat content.

However, I am an enterprising individual, and I will not let such a thing deter me from enjoying a perfect meal.

Now I will share with you my secrets on how to make the ideal macaroni and cheese to eat by the fire on a cold slushy winter night.

First, You must grate as much cheddar cheese as your conscience will allow, and then grate a little bit more.

Then, when you are mixing in the cheese sauce and milk that comes with your macaroni, you must mix the majority of your grated cheddar in right away. It will melt and become part of the sauce. It will make the mac & cheese creamy, rich and satisfying.

And then, after you serve the mac & cheese, you must sprinkle some more cheese on top. This cheese will only melt a little, wrapping your macaroni lovingly in its embrace as it travels to your mouth.


Happy Monday, everyone!

Another plan of attack: Add melted brie. More fat. No grating required.

Your mac & cheese looks really really good. I haven’t had any in a long time, but I think the time is coming soon. You’re right — perfect for a cold night.

I love Annie’s Mac & Cheese. I also feel okay giving it to M. It’s her favorite food.

Yes, sooo tasty! I am glad there is a better alternative to Kraft, and it’s seriously just as good.

I’ve heard REALLY good things about Annies Mac n’ Cheese but I’m yet to try it. Must get on that!

The effect may be magnified by the lighting in my kitchen … but it was pretty yellow/orange. There is some “natural color” in the ingredient list … sneaky marketers!
