The only thing I put peas in is homemade vegetable soup or meat pies so the texture and flavor of peas aren't prevalent.
Oh no, I used to put peas and onions in mine all the time! It's purdy, too.

I love peas, though. I used to make a bowl of peas with butter, salt, and pepper just for a snack.

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.
That picture you posted gives me the creeps! And I don't even have fear of holes - trypophobia.

And to the OP - yes! Your dog licking the tv sounds adorable!

Peas and tuna in macaroni and cheese is not something I would ever eat.

I made homemade mac and cheese tonight, and I would not trade it for that orange stuff for anythging.

If you want quick mac and cheese, Annie's is better than Kraft, for my money.
I just tried Cracker Barrel mac n cheese. Itís meant to be baked, but you do t have to. I thought it was way better than Kraft, but hubby did not.

Can't eat those with dried cheese powder. I've tried others, in a pinch, that has the sauce ready made in a package. It's quick but still...not equal to homemade.

I make homemade with very sharp cheddar...and a little parm tossd in...best comfort food of all.

That's cute that your dog licked the tv when he saw your favorite kraft mac & cheese.

I've eaten it plain a few times Peas sound like a good addition. Could never eat fish with cheese though.

Or heavy cream.

I thought it was OK, edible. My husband was the one who bought the Kraft stuff. His mother didn't make mac and cheese, and I guess that was his only outlet.

I've had it a couple of times, and it's quite good. It's certainly not from a boxed mix. Pretty heavy on the grease, but that's to be expected.

I'm thinking of mac and cheese using caramelized onions, Gruyere cheese and adding some Gewurztraminer to the cheese sauce. French onion "soup" mac and cheese.

I would use a less sweet white wine if I were to add wine, which I occasionally used to do when making Mornay sauce for Devonshires. I used crabmeat, btw, not turkey.
