Monday Munchies: Macaroni and Cheese!
Despite being hopeless in the kitchen, I’ve been loving it up lately. I wouldn’t call myself creative, or culinary… in fact, I pride myself in taking really simple and basic “recipes” and adding or substituting ingredients to make myself feel fancy and/or healthier. Usually the former. And no self-respecting chef would consider me fancy.
That disclaimer aside, you have to try this. I made Annie’s whole grain, white cheddar, mac and cheese shells, and added steamed broccoli and Trader Joe’s chicken andouille sausage. Instead of eating the whole pot of mac and cheese in one sitting (anyone who says they can withstand is a liar), I filled up way faster AND it was actually delicious. And fancy. And maybe healthy. Plus, the leftovers made the end of a 4-hour Barbri lecture just a little bit better, and not many things can make me say that.
