I like to cook for my family. it isn’t always something I have been good at. but I think I have made a lot of progress lately. I love it when my girls tell me I am a good cook and should have my own cooking show on the food channel. (yea right!)
So when I saw a recipe for there favorite in a box meal mac and cheese. I thought to myself. That will be so much better homemade. I made the sauce, it thickened perfectly with just the right amount of butter flour and milk. I added the grated cheese and finally the cooked noodles. I think cooking takes me longer than the average Joe. because it took along time to finish. A LOT longer than the box
I served it excitedly to my family. I even put bread crumbs on top. My Girls liked it ok. my 15 month old LOVED it. The response from my husband was the most surprising.
Now he is not a picky guy, and not mean at all when he does not like what I cook. He didn’t have to say anything, I could tell by his face and unfinished bowl. He liked the box version better than homemade! For reals! I mean powdered cheese and all. He usually put hot dogs in his boxed fake cheese version too YUCK. I felt a little defeated, I mean isn’t everything supposed to be better homemade? I followed the recipe perfectly. Can the box kind that I one time bought on sale at the grocery store for 33 cents really be better?
Solution: Next time I am getting out the box.
