How it’s done.

August 18, 2011


During the lazy times, I admit to relying on mac-n-cheese as the sole component of dinner occasionally. However, I dress it up with tomatoes. Pour a third-to-half a can of diced tomatoes in a bowl, sprinkle with basil and nuke for a minute or so and put on top of your serving. Viola! Fake spaghetti!

The specks tell you it's working.

You are in two camps when in comes to this: My camp, which is full of awesomeness and has Starbursts for dessert, or Lloyd’s camp, which is stupid and closed-minded. Lloyd would rather eat macaroni out of his shoe than put tomatoes on it.

Ironically, when I was in grade school, the one side dish that I remember was macaroni and tomatoes. I don’t think there was much, if any, cheese in there, but just the thought of eating it made me want to barrrrrrrrrrfff. What has changed? In my old age will I begin to crave other things I detested?

    I’m with Lloyd. How can you corrupt the pure, delightful flavor of reconstituted cheese powder? I would never put anything on my Kraft macaroni and cheese. Except more macaroni and cheese.

    But I don’t know about eating it out of my shoe…

    Did anybody’s mom ever cut up hotdogs and put those in it?

    I prefer mac-n-cheese with A-1 on top. Delish

    Sometimes I make a mac and cheese dish with hamburger. I got the recipe out of a Thrivent or AAL cookbook. brown hamburger, add boiled mac, and cheese powder, add salsa, and add anything else you want. I sometimes add a can of corn.

    Mmmm….it’s good.
