My 11-year-old is on this mac and cheese kick that can’t be stopped. He wants it for his snack every day after school. Every. Single. Day.
That’s fine. Mac and cheese and a piece of fruit tide him over until dinner.
I was making big batches of mac and cheese on the weekends and letting him heat up a serving in the afternoon, but then I saw individual serving containers at Brookshire’s. They are the perfect amount for a hungry guy in the afternoon, and best of all, he can make them himself in the microwave.
All he does is open the container, fill it with water to the marked line, microwave, and then stir in the pouch of cheese sauce. He loves being able to do it himself, and he loves the creamy, cheesy flavor of Velveeta.
It reminds me of my college days when my best friend, Kathy, and I used to make Velveeta Shells and Cheese in our hot pot in our dorm room every Tuesday because our class schedule kept us from making it to the dining hall for lunch.
