I think Papa John will be providing dinner tonight. I had to work today and am still cleaning up the house and doing wedding stuff (it's in 3 days!). I don't want to dirty up the kitchen again!

Home made. But no jazzing! It's my birthday so I went very simple. I just boiled some macaroni and made my usual cheese sauce (with Davidstow cheddar).

What is "Box" Mac & Cheese?

Canadians call it "Kraft Dinner" I believe.
Everything comes in a box with powdered cheese, or *cheese-like product* anyway, that you add butter and milk, too
Tasty enough and quick. The microwave popcorn of macaroni and cheese
Something many of us grew up eating as kids but few will admit to.

"Box" mac 'n cheese is pre-made with a powdered or packaged cheese sauce

We have taco meat left over from last night, so we're going to make nachos with that, chopped garden tomatoes, pickled red onions, lettuce, cheddar cheese and salsa over corn tortilla chips.

Leftover Cuban black beans and Imperial black rice. It sorta looks like lumpy mud, but tastes good

Chili with the beans and garlic bread. I do'nt think chili is too bad without the beans, though. It's very cold outside tonight!

With love,

I never had macaroni and cheese as a child. Didn't have it for the first time until I was well into my 30's. I like Stouffer's (frozen) much better than Kraft.

That's interesting, Andy. I don't recall having it (buying it) until my twenties. It stands to reason I probably had it earlier though. These convenient food items usually don't survive unless people are buying them.
If it's a tossup between frozen mac and cheese or boxed, I'll take the boxed variety I'm actually cooking and not heating through. I seem to be able to control it better. I like my mac and cheese a bit dryer than Stouffers.

We had the pot of pig (made with smoked paprika), boiled potatoes with butter, and a salad with a garlic vinaigrette. It turned out yummy. I just have to work on making more sauce.
