Love That Mac and Cheese

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

Snow is falling and tonight the fire will be crackling. Now all I need to complete the picture is a big bowl of mac and cheese. Boxed or homemade, I love it all. But I’m a purist. Don’t you dare add cauliflower or shrimp or peas or…well…Maine lobster might work…or bacon. No really, I like my pasta and cheese without any foreign objects.

Give it to me with Velvetta or Brie, Cheddar or Parmigiano, or add three or four kinds. Give it to me with Cheese Whiz or Gouda or Ricotta. I love them all.

Creamy golden on the inside, crisp and crunchy on the top. Yum.

And some day down the road, when they finally come and take me away to the old folks home, I better get my mac and cheese, or else. Just saying.

And how do you like yours?
