Oh, boy! YOu just came up with one of the twelve things I cannot bring myself to eat.

Years ago, I was hospitalized with severe intestinal problems. That's all behind me now(sorry for the pun) but at the time, I was put on a liquid diet for the first 3 days I was there. The first solid meal they decided I could have, the nurse uncovered the plate to reveal ..... you guessed it..... Chili Mac! The look of it, the smell of it What WERE they thinking?

have not been able to even look at the stuff since.

I know I can't eat anything similar to food I ate when I was sick. It is called learned conditioning. We associate negative thoughts with food, smells, tastes, experiences. And once learned it is very hard to unlearn them.

Sorry about that June..

Were they out of jello? Geez no wonder you don't like it.I wouldn't either.

My husband is like that with my meatloaf... Ok even the dogs are like that with my meatloaf.I usually get the pathetic look from them "Don't you luv me anymore mom?" I gave up on it.

Ahh well glad you're feeling better. :)

Munky.

1 box Mac-n-Cheese
1 can Wolf brand chili (with beans)
additional grated cheddar (optional)

Make the Mac-n-Cheese according to package directions - add the can of chili and heat ... add additional cheese if you want.

One pot dorm room version!
