I have distinct memories of eating macaroni and cheese from a box as a kid. My mom would only let us have it every so often, (she fed us pretty healthy most of the time, but would allow for occasional exceptions), and when she did, I remember thinking it was a real treat! It’s amazing how I now look at that same little blue box in horror thinking about the chemicals and preservatives that are in that little ‘cheese’ packet. They didn’t have Easy Mac around when I was a kid, but I can imagine that it would of been one of my favorite snacks. I have taken all the of the simplicity of this novel concept, and turned it into a much healthier and satisfying dish!
