I’ll Trade You Dinner for Lunch

My camera battery died. Oh dear.

I’ll make a deal with you… since my lunch today is a repeat from yesterday’s seafood salad pita pocket, I’m going to bypass that recipe repeat in favor of pictures from last night’s dinner. Sound good? Good!

Just in case you missed my seafood salad pita pocket post, here’s a recap via one picture:

Yum, Yum

As for dinner last night… enter Kraft white cheddar organic macaroni and cheese.

Kraft Organic White Cheeddar Macaroni and Cheese

(Please note the glowing Christmas tree in the background for some holiday flava.)

I made this noodle delight since Ryan and I were feelin’ a quick and easy dinner. I added 2 percent milk to the cheese sauce, but omitted the butter. Neither of us missed it at all!

Bowl o' Mac

The white cheddar flavor is great! We both preferred it to Kraft’s original organic macaroni and cheese. This actually tasted a lot like Annie’s organic white cheddar mac and cheese that Ryan and I tried two months ago.

I love that this carb-heavy meal also contains 10 grams of protein per serving.

Delicious

Posting about this makes me want another bowl! What a comforting childhood meal. The organic variety is great because the super-scary ingredient list on the normal mac and cheese boxes is condensed dramatically. Gotta love it!

Were you a macaroni and cheese kid growing up?

I’ve always loved mac and cheese and used to get so excited when my mom would buy the boxes of pasta with the noodles shaped like my favorite cartoon characters. I would always ask my mom if I could add the cheese to the noodles. It made me feel helpful and important. πŸ™‚

  9. I LOVED Velveeta shells and cheese.. I used to BEG my mom to make it. lol

  10. I loved mac & cheese, but would not eat any other shape other than the classic elbow noodles – weird, huh? I thought the shapes tasted weird… I was a very weird and picky eater as a child. Now I’m totally the opposite! Well, I guess I’m still kinda weird, haha! πŸ˜‰

  12. Mac and cheese is such a comfort food, I just love it! It’s one of those things you can eat and never get sick of. YUM

  13. I LOVED mac n cheese as a kid (and still do!) I couldn’t wait until my parents went out because they’d make us kraft mac n cheese before they left us with a babysitter. YUM! Also good with cooked tuna in it:)

  14. You should have added a bowl of freshly steamed veggies to your mac ‘n cheese to add nutrients and bulk it up! πŸ˜‰
