Sigh. I guess wisdom only comes with age.
So Mac & Cheese it was. I pulled out the Kraft Mac & Cheese...ok, really it was Target's Market Pantry Mac & Cheese...What ever, it's neon orange powder from a box. Ummm, no thank you.
But that box is important. That box reassures the girls that they're getting the boxed mac & cheese. lol!
So I set the box on the counter, set the water to boil and got the pasta going.
Then I decided to through some shelled edamame into the boiling water too. I know Kai likes it and I figured I'd take the chance with her BFF (who it turns out wasn't about to give it a chance)
So the pasta was made and it was time to add the powder. The neon orange powder. I just can't bring myself to do it. Seriously, it's neon orange!
So into the drained pasta & edamame went 1/3 Cup Shredded Cheddar Jack Cheese & 3T Milk. ...And a small dash of neon powder in order to give it that expected 'glow' (these girl's aren't color blind and real cheese just doesn't produce that color).
Ta-da! Mac & Cheese minus the powder. :)
And the taste results...I loved it, Kai loved it, Kai's BFF...liked the mac & cheese but wasn't going anywhere near those edamame!
