The One with the $30 Macaroni & Cheese


I'm not here to tell you what to have for dinner, but are you seriously going through the Taco Bell drive-thru again? (You know who you are...) I know you think macaroni and cheese was invented by Kraft, and I am very sorry for you and your sad upbringing, but it is time to grow up now. Wake up and smell the cheese melting.

I have made this using all different kinds of cheeses. The easiest substitutions are regular sharp cheddar in place of the aged white cheddar, and regular Swiss cheese in place of the Gruyere. That will take the price down, so that it is $12 mac and cheese. This makes a lot of food. Invite your neighbors. Throw some tomato slices on top, and call it health food. Enjoy...

okay, you might be talking to me (I COOKED TONIGHT) but I hate pasta and mac and cheese, so I need an idea for another night!

Did someone tell you I have been looking for a good mac-n-cheese recipe? This looks so good but, maybe too many ingredients for me. :) I will give it a try though. I've been craving a good homemade mac-n-cheese.

Mariposa, thanks for stopping by. YES, Mac & Cheese = muy delicioso!

Lisa. You hound me on Facebook. E-mail. My blog. And yes, you ply me with food... I suppose I will cave and post tomorrow. If I have something to say. You wouldn't want me to resort to another recipe... although you know there's plenty more where that came from.
