Back in the day, I used to feed my three sons lunch with one box of Kraft M&C, and they loved it. If it was dinner, I'd add some Purdue chicken nuggets.

But mac and cheese is one food I've never personally developed a liking for, whether from a box, a restaurant, or homemade. I'm certainly an anomaly here in the south!

Yes I guess you are right. I thought I posted a funny story about sharing a meal with my dog and when she saw it on the tv, she jumped up and licked the tv.

I'm older now and don't have kids, but maybe for those that have kids, make a box of kraft mac & cheese, heat up a small can of peas, dump those in and add a can of tuna. Stir it all up and they may just like it. It sure beats those sorry as* peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I made a mistake when I said we had margerine, we didn't, we had oleo. I don't know what the difference is but I don't see oleo in stores anymore.

Bon Appetit!

When I lived in Connecticut, we'd go to a nearby restaurant that served this dish of deliciousness: Ziti baked in a Cheddar, Swiss & Gruyere sauce and topped with seasoned crumbs. We loved that the noodles were vertical too.



That said, I love the stuff from the box. The original kind -- not the different shapes, different cheese, whatever. It has to be the elbows with the orange powder. Yum.

I love your dog story. SO SWEET! Dogs are the best people.

Mornay sauce is the way to begin. Not orange powder.

Hey, for what it's worth I really liked your story. Dogs are so cute and funny. You are lucky to have a nice dog to share your Mac and Cheese with!

I don't know a dozen ways to make tuna enjoyable. Maybe you can make adding it with peas to kraft mac and cheese number 13.

Yes, I was a welfare kid. We had puffed rice or wheat for breakfast with powdered milk. However, we could put as much sugar on it as we wanted. In elementary school, we took our lunch with a nickel for a carton of milk. My lunch was one of the following: PB&J, 2 Hydrox cookies and one of those cheap apples that nobody wanted to eat. If there wasn't any peanut butter then we got margerine and jelly. If all else failed, we got Mayonnaise bread. When times were good, we got surplus cheese.

Ironically, my job for more than 20 years was to take clients out for dinner and wine and dine them to maintain the relationship or to obtain more clients. So yes, my diet became more adventurous. As much as Zagat would allow.

How funny, I still like to come home to a cheap box of wine, mac and cheese with tuna and peas and a dog that loves me.
I love this post. And I also enjoy Kraft Macaroni and Cheese over the years. Sometimes I add tuna and peas too. I also like it as a side with a petite steak and some green beans.

You know, I LOVE my dog but not sure if I do THAT much! Her tastes are a bit less discriminating than mine.

IMO, I could handle the tuna, but adding peas to Mac N Cheese is blasphemy! LOL

The only thing I put peas in is homemade vegetable soup or meat pies so the texture and flavor of peas aren't prevalent.

no, tuna and canned peas is OK, although frozen green vegs are better. DH used to add carrots, which always turned me off.


When I was in college there were some days when I went straight from class to a PT job, and didn't get home until about 9:30 PM. I would make a box of M&C dinner, not intending to eat the whole thing. I always ate the whole thing.


BTW, sauteed onions is a GREAT addition to mac and cheese - just saying. Try it sometime.

I love this! Blasphemy. You probably gave me the best laugh of the day. Remember when Emeril Lagasse yelled "Bam" when he threw his spice into a food. I will now yell "blasphemy" when I throw in the peas. I don't think the dog will care. She'll eat it anyway and so will I. I wish yelling blasphemy made as much money as bam. Let's start a go fund me.

Thank you gouligann. Love your sense of humor.
