Sometimes there are days that you just want something that reminds you of your childhood. Now, there are only a few foods that I strongly associate with my childhood, mostly because many of the other foods we still cook. So meals like spaghetti and baked chicken don’t stand out strongly, but artichoke bread and jambalaya do.
Today, however, I had a hankering for Kraft Mac and Cheese. This was an easy meal we typically did when my dad was out of town, and there’s something really tasty about it in my memory. College almost ruined it for me – Easy Mac is a very different product – but I decided it was time to try it out again. (As a note, I probably haven’t had Kraft Mac and Cheese since early high school when my dad took over meals. And D refuses to have it in the house, probably because of the orange cheese.)
And you know what? It was delicious.
