How to make Mac & Cheese (seriously)

By 6:28 PM , ,

Ok, so this post is more for personal amusement than anything else. I grew up on having almost everything homemade... so the recipes I learned (and don't really remember) are all home recipes. Recently, my mom came back from the States and did something unprecedented - Normally she isn't an advocate for such but... she brought back a few packets of mac & cheese for me. For purposes of easy traveling, she removed the contents from their original boxes and ziplocked them.

It was the first time I had mac & cheese - from a box.

Now this put yours truly in a quandary. How do I make this? There's no box with a recipe on it... I've never had it before... I don't know how it's supposed to look at the end.

I do, however, know how the oh-so-good macaroni & cheese pie looks and tastes... *rubs tummy nostalgically*

So, here is a photo documentation of my trials and tribulations with making mac & cheese - from a box(or ziplock bag).


The macaroni and cheese packet.

First step: Observe the specimen

This step is pretty simple. It's typical pasta that just cooks faster. I mean, theoretically speaking, since it is supposed to be a "quick easy to make" meal.

Step 2: Boil water

Step 3: (not necessary) Pour out cheese packet into a bowl 

Let me explain why this happened. I noticed some ants near my goods. I was suspect. I opened it to see if they were trying to attack my cheese and whether they succeeded. *perturbed expression* Luckily, they didn't.

Step 4: Add pasta to hot water & stir occasionally.

Step 5: Drain water

Step 6: Add cheese

Step 7: Stir

Step 8: Serve and eat.


So I may have deceived a little. This is the third and last packet. The first one I had to acquire the taste, which made me feel nauseous... but then as is typical with me, regardless of whether I like something or not, I start to crave it. Now I'm all out of mac & cheese.  Le sigh.

Shelli out.
