Zacharoni and Please

So, tonight I am finishing off the macaroni and cheese. Homemade (not Home-maid) macaroni and cheese is maybe my favorite food besides pizza, cookies, and donuts. I know I'm a grown up and probably those shouldn't be my favorite foods but every time I eat a cookie I catch myself saying, "I love cookies. Cookies are my favorite food."

Anyway, this one time in college I went to a church activity where they had baked macaroni and cheese. It was love at first sight. It bore a resemblance to my mom's homemade macaroni, but it was, well, baked. I always wanted to try making it but I never have; usually, around the Moncur house, we just have pizza and cookies and really skimp out on the pastas. Well, I found this recipe for homemade (not home-maid, er...or ho-made) macaroni and cheese in the Droubay Ward cookbook (thanks for sharing, Marla!) right next to the "Pizza Spaghetti" (which I have heard referred to as "Pizza-ghetti") and the "Krafty Ham," neither of which to be outdone by the "Hot Dogs in Tomato Sauce" (yes, it's a real recipe).

So, I made the recipe and it was great. Only, there was a lot of it. The kids wouldn't eat it because it wasn't Kraft, even though I anticipated this and called it noodles (which they like) and cheese (which they also like): no luck. But their loss; it was good.

Next, I think I will make "Hot Dog Roni Bake." Wanna come over?

My children were the same way when I tried making this for them. They love the yellow/orange stuff out of the box, but would not eat this at all. Best of luck with the next recipe.

For reals? Because I was kind of joking. Okay, I was all the way joking. Are you joking, too?
