Quick Mac 'n Cheese
There are more and more of the single serve cups in the market now. Sooner or later, they might get their own isle like the can foods. Do you get the EASY MAC cups for some quick Mac 'n CHeese?

No, I would rather have my own home made.

nope... i like the shells and cheese velveeta... or i make it myself in the oven. :)

I tried the kraft version... not for me.

I don't think I've had Velveeta anything in a long time. I think the last time I had it, I was kid and the commercial was showing you how to make nachos haha. I should give the cheese and shells a try.

My grandmother told me that when my dad and uncle were kids, she used to make mac and cheese by taking several bottles of cheeze-whiz, warm them up in a pan with boiling water, and then mix it with macaroni. Yum (in, ahem, a cheesy sort of way)!

LOL!! My mom used to do that!!!! :) I love to make the baked kind in the winter... that's my favorite homemade....but velveeta shells and cheese is a quick fix for me in the summer. :)

I agree, PBS. The baked kind is the absolute best. Had the Velveeta and shells a few weeks ago. My late hubby and I used to go to a small restaurant nearby that served just plain homecooked food. They had absolutely wonderful mac and cheese. Funny thing, though...You could always tell which cook had made the mac and cheese on any given day, since each one added their own minor twist to it. :D

ROTFL!! :) that's how it is supposed to be RJ! :) my gran's mac and cheese was totally different from my mom's! My gran was used to stretching things... 8 kids...worked for a nursing home as a cook.... and my mom only had my sister and me. So, my gran used to make from scratch and add seasonings and extra ingredients to make the meal go farther...and my mom used to cook it out of a box... LOL! :)

It's quite amazing the strides (or perhaps it should be the steps backward) that modern times have made in how we cook and what we cook!

My Gran grew up using a wood stove too cook on, and didn't have a microwave until she was already retired! That is quite an adjustment over time... ya know?

I agree PBS I too always made mine using real cheese that I cut up then added it to the pasta of choice for the day added 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup and milk mixed it all together and topped it with bread crumbs and a few pats of butter and baked it. Now I live with a bunch that don't like it that way so, it's elbow,velveta,milk and a little butter. heat mix and serve. I miss all the different cheese I use to use. :(

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that's how it works RJ...we write it for you to salivate over later... :D *weg*

now... does anyone have a mac & cheese that you can make in the crockpot so I don't have to heat the house up?? :D

crazymomma July 16th, 2009 09:46 AM

yep. cook your pasta and drain it.add 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 8oz. package of chopped up colby cheese and 1 8oz. pack of chopped up sharp cheddar cheese. and fill the soup can with milk and add that. mix well cover with bread crumbs and a few pats of butter and cover on low. When you get it home from work it'll be ready. Taste great with a nice tossed salad. yum.
