. reunited, and it feels so good .

September 9, 2011

Happy Friday, friends! ๐Ÿ˜€

Who’s glad to see the weekend rolling in? I am! But not so much for the promise of R&R, because I doubt I’ll be getting much of that this weekend (I need to get serious about packing!). No. The real reason that I’m happy to see this week come to a close is that it brings me that much closer to theย big move.

Six days and counting ๐Ÿ˜€ Can.not. wait.

And that’s not the only exciting thing that’s been happening around these parts.ย See, today I got reunited with a long-lost friend…

Not quite what you were expecting, was it? Allow me to explain.

Me and Mac go way back. If I had to pick one food that reminded me of my younger years (God, do I sound old or what?), Mac&Cheese would be it. When I was first started learning how to cook for myself, macaroni and cheese was basically the only thing that I could make [well], so it basically became the only thing I ate.

And it didn’t hurt that it was deliciously addictive either.

What? Don’t give me that look. Like you’ve never eaten an entire box over the course of one day. You never? Well then. You were either a good cook, a more health-conscious teenager, or lactose intolerant.

None of the above apply to me.

In any case… Mac&Cheese. We were tight. Peas and carrots, if you will. I won’t go over the length and breadth of my addiction to those cheesy noodles, other than to say that I loved them as much as I now love oatmeal…

ย 

… and ate them just as often [read: every day, sometimes multiple times]
(Get your minds outta the gutter!)ย 

Enter ED, stage right (Boo! Hiss!). Hello 4 years of Mac&Cheese sobriety…

… and now, good-bye…

… and good riddance…

ย 

Yes, I’ve fallen off the wagon. Okay, maybe not completelyย off the wagon; I mean, I can actually cook [other things] now, and I doubt that I could go back to eating it as much as I used to, but the waves of nostalgia that hit me at lunch were intoxicating, and Mac&Cheese will definitelyย be making more regular appearances in the future.

Enjoy the start of your weekend, loves ๐Ÿ˜€

. – . – . – .

What food(s) bring back memories of your younger self?ย 

Do you still eat them now? Healthier variations?

    WOOOOT 6 days! So close! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. September 9, 2011 5:36 pm

    YAAAY 6 days!! I am SO excited for you!!

    Mmm mac and cheese is GOOD!! When I was a kid, I used to have Triple Decker Pizza Sandwiches every Saturday. Three mini pizzas as a sandwich filling. I think I need to bring that one back ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. September 9, 2011 5:41 pm

    I LOVE Annie’s Mac and Cheese! Totally buying some this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. September 9, 2011 5:44 pm

    I havent had Mac & Cheese for years either! Like you, I used to live off of it. Well… I lived off all things cheesy ๐Ÿ˜€ Unfortunately, now I have a weird and irrational fear of pasta. I should try some macaroni in the future to be “reunited” and get over my fear.

    Hmm… chicken brings back memories from when I was younger. It didn’t matter if I went to an Italian, Chinese, or Mexican restaurant — I’d always order chicken! I don’t eat any now though because the only meat that I consume is fish. I think I ate all of the chicken I was meant to eat in my life ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. September 9, 2011 5:44 pm

    When I was younger it was top ramen. All day everyday, I was also kind of the queen of making just perfect. (sounds weird I mean how hard is it to cook ramen?!) But all the neighbor kiddies would come over to eat MY ramen!
    Unfortunately I ate SO much of it that the desire to eat it poofed when i hit high school. Nothing ED related I just got completely sick of it ๐Ÿ˜›
    Mac ‘n cheese was always a close second to me. (Ramen was faster to make though haha) I’ve seen those Annie’s mac ‘n cheeses! I now really want to pick up a box ๐Ÿ™‚

    6 days, woo hoo ๐Ÿ˜€ I ate tons of annies shells and cheese when I was younger, and I was always super happy when my mom bought the peace sign ones haha they came in a tie dye box, I loved it! I always eat the whole box at a time, wait… there is more than one serving in there? ๐Ÿ˜‰ seems like one to me. I still eat a ton of things I did growing up, but my rice, butter, and mango combo is not as appealing anymore, I was odd. Butternut squash ravioli with pesto always reminds me of growing up, I ate that by the TON!

    As a child, I used to LOVELOVELOVE Nilla Wafers! I used to scrape out the inside with my teeth and make them into hollow boats, then suck on the rest of cookie until it dissolved in my mouth. (I’m sorry, TMI?)

    I sadly don’t eat them anymore– especially not now that I’m not allowed to have wheat. But hot damn those babies were fantastic!

    PBJ and I are getting re-aquainted.
    I have such love for PBJ in ALL forms and my healthy variations are TOO DIE FOR. Yet. I am still working up to having one straight up on bread (ezekiel, not the wrap) with a glass of chocolate milk. Till then? My PBJ fetish is taking very splendiforous recreations.

  9. September 9, 2011 5:55 pm

    Ahhhh! 6 days!! So excited for you!! Annie’s is the BEST macaroni and cheese. I miss their Mexican version though, it was the bestest (Sometime I wish that was an actual word). And I cracked up at the Peas and Carrots reference…Forrest Gump!! HAH!

  10. September 9, 2011 5:56 pm

    Woo hoo for 6 days!!! That’s so close! I love mac and cheese! I haven’t had it in a really long time, I should buy some asap :). I definitely think that pancakes, and grilled cheese bring me back to my younger self. I make pancakes healthier and I don’t eat grilled cheese all that often anymore, but if I do I make it healthier too!

  11. September 9, 2011 6:05 pm

    Oh my goodness, already only 6 days! Time has sure flown by, I remember when you just broke the news! Mac and cheese is definitely one of those foods that bring back childhood memories for me. My mom would make it for dinner when she was looking for something fast and cheap (read: often!) The food that brings back the most memories of my childhood is Lipton Chicken Noodle Soup! I would eat the entire package all to myself, even though it was supposed to serve four people. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aaaaand now I’m craving mac’n cheese- I swear you could take a piccie of poop and I’d think it looks delish( haha, I took it too far) but seriously your pictures are always drool worthy.
    There are TONS of food that bring back memories for me, ill just say a soft boiled egg( in an egg cup) with toast soldiers to dip in, and baked beans , which I still love now. My dad used to make this really weird mussel broth/ soup which I used to eat by the bowlful, but now the thought of it kinda makes me gag!
    Eeee, so not long to the move now!

    I used to absolutely love New England Clam Chowder, and now I am petrified of it… Anything that is high in fat that I used to love as a kid (with the exception of nuts and nut butters, because, hello, it’s just so freakin’ delicious) is now “off-limits.”

    I’m glad you and Mac & Cheese found each other again. May you have a long, healthy relationship ๐Ÿ™‚

    (And so excited for you! Six days!)

  14. September 9, 2011 6:24 pm

    We used to make velveeta mac and cheese with those shells and it was ammmazing. not the healthiest, but I’d still eat the entire pan by myself in 1 sitting. the shells are so much better than the macaroni noodles. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. September 9, 2011 6:30 pm

    Yes Annies!! I grew up on that stuff and I’ve been way too afraid to try it although my siblings have it all the time. I think I should just man up and make myself a box sometime, what could it hurt? Also quesadillas with bean dip!! mmm

  16. September 9, 2011 6:35 pm

    That’s the same food I would choose from my childhood. One of them anyway. It’s my favorite thing to eat. My mom makes a “healthier” version and since then I’ve tried to make even healthier ones… But since my injury I haven’t had it. It’s hard for me to order it out anymore. I’ll pretty much only eat it if i make it or if I eat a bite or two of my mothers. It’s gotta have whole wheat noodles and not full-fat cheese, for sure. ugh. fml. ha

  17. September 9, 2011 6:42 pm

    I was cutting up really ripe bananas last night to stick in the freezer, and it gave me a little flashback to being small and how my mum would sometimes slice a banana into a bowl, pour some milk over and give it to me to eat as a snack. It made me have a sudden craving for a simple milk+banana combo.
    I have to admit, I think I’ve only ever had mac + cheese three times in my life, and it confused me when people said it was easy to make…until I realised you could make it from a box ;). We never had that over here growing up. Mind, for a while I lived off meals of plain pasta with grated cheese and a side of peas. I was a somewhat finicky child. You’ve kind of made me want pasta-cheese-and-peas now! I keep trying to like pasta, but the texture just weirds me out now.
    Good luck with getting organised for your move! I always end up leaving the packing til the day before (or morning of) a move. It’s amazing how quick you can pack when you have to ;).

    • September 10, 2011 8:11 am

      Haha to be honest, I think that’s what I’m going to end up doing… frantically shoving everything into boxes/suitcases the night before I move and hoping for the best.

    AAHHHH 6 DAYS! WOO! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Mac and cheese definitely reminds me of childhood–same with gushers, fruit by the foot, chicken nuggets, poptarts, apples with pb, and huge bowls of Corn Flakes cereal haha I don’t really like poptarts any more since I kinda OD’ed on them as a kid, but every once in awhile I love to indulge in a sugar rush with some gushers! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Best of luck packing my friend!!

  19. September 9, 2011 7:28 pm

    I would eat like a whole box of mac and cheese. That’s when I was heavy though. Still.
    Enter ED, and cheese + noodles = I do not eat.

    Now I’ll eat pasta and cheese. It’s not going to kill me. Besides, runners need pasta. It’s what we do.

  20. September 9, 2011 7:40 pm

    Mac n Cheese is definitely a childhood memory envoking food for me – I always made it for myself, would make a huge bowl, and then sit on the couch to enjoy it. So good.

  21. September 9, 2011 7:44 pm

    We love these! So fun and fast. Great for kids too!

  23. September 9, 2011 7:54 pm

    I actually never liked Mac and Cheese as a kid, and still don’t eat it much! Happy Friday to cha though. WOOT 6 more days ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. September 9, 2011 8:07 pm

    6 days! wow!! YAY! So exciting! I bet you are so busy getting stuff ready !

    Never tried that Mac and Cheese! I love Kraft mac and cheese, that reminds me of my childhood! Used to eat that a lot!

    Love ya girl! Have a wonderful night! xoxo

  26. September 9, 2011 8:37 pm

    awe, i love annie’s shells and cheddar. it is especially good with green peas too! i’m guilty of eating the whole box in ONE sitting! totally reminds me of my childhood.

  27. September 9, 2011 9:38 pm

    I used to loveee mac n cheese too..actually I still do. ๐Ÿ™‚ Annie’s white cheddar shells are a tasty version. I actually ALMOST made a box of Kraft mac n cheese today because I’ve been ravenous and snacking all day. lol

  28. September 9, 2011 9:40 pm

    Yay, 6 days!!!! That’s so close! Hope you don’t get too stressed out with packing and such.

    I used to be obsessed with candy. Halloween was my favorite holiday! I didn’t honestly eat it that much, but one of my favorite kinds was the sour gummy Lifesavers. Now I have sour gummy multivitamins, so it’s like “candy” that’s good for me haha ๐Ÿ˜€

    I have to say I was never a fan of Mac n Cheese. I could never stand the fake cheesy taste.
    Or maybe the ones I tried when young were just really bad.
    It must have felt good to ‘allow’ yourself to have something you restricted yourself from earlier ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hmm foods that bring back memories is probably Mum’s fried rice and fairy bread ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. September 9, 2011 10:00 pm

    That mac & cheese looks so good! Ya know, I’ve only ever had it once and it was the real deal. Oh my, it was delicious! My family are just not into making things like that so I had never had it until I was 18.

    Foods that bring back memories of my younger self would be lasagne and cauliflower cheese. My Mum would make the best lasagne and cauliflower cheese. Sadly, my Mum doesn’t make these things anymore coz she lives far away from us kids but maybe one day I’ll make her fix some up for me (as long as they don’t have cream in them which might be hard to do :\)

    YAY for the big move! I’m so excited for you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ahh I used to love Kraft Mac & Cheese too.. the big blue box. I haven’t had it for years. One day again I will… I suspect maybe a hangover day will do it ๐Ÿ™‚
    Favourite nostalgic childhood meal would have to be pasta (specifically gnocchi) or rice with tomato sauce, grated cheese and margarine. Yum, such comforting childhood tastes and memories! Occassionally I’ll have a spoonful of that combo now but never an entire bowl.
    I’m so excited for you to have broken Mac & Cheese in again!
    Have fun packing… it’s exciting! And a great way to have a good closet cleanse!

  32. September 9, 2011 11:06 pm

    yummy! amy’s are the best! and for me it’s always been ice cream.
    also those neon-pink & white / sprinkle covered animal cookies…which i tried again recently and could not understand how i ever enjoyed them.

    LOVE mac & cheese, especially Easy Mac! It tastes so processed yet oh so delicious!

  35. September 9, 2011 11:35 pm

    Mac and Cheese definitely reminds me of my younger self. I have really wanted to recreate a new “healthified” version of my old favourite meal, but still need to do it ๐Ÿ™‚ Another meal that reminds me of my childhood is grilled cheese ๐Ÿ™‚ I am thinking of a cheddar and apple sandwich soon? I saw it at Cafe One today (one of my favourite restaurants) and thought it sounded tasty ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. September 10, 2011 12:08 am

    wow 6 more days!! Time is really flying by but im so excited for you ๐Ÿ™‚ Rice and gravy was all i ate as a kid and ED seperated us as well ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Maybe its time we are reunited too!!

  37. September 10, 2011 12:14 am

    Grilled cheese & tomato soup was my childhood heartwarmin lunch.
    Havent had it since i got a butchured grease-ladden version at inpatient ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    I must be reunited with a good experience!
    I also had KD, did you always se annies?

  38. September 10, 2011 12:24 am

    mac and cheese<3

  39. September 10, 2011 12:27 am

    Foods the remind me of my childhood – that would be a polish dish called Pierogi. They’re a TON of work to make so I only eat them with my family on special occasions. I’m particularly partial to the ones stuffed with mushrooms and no, I don’t “healthify” them in any way.

    • September 10, 2011 9:47 am

      Ahhh pierogies. They totally remind me of my childhood as well. We’re Polish, so my mom used to make them a lot when I was younger. Now they only come out for the special occasions, too, because she doesn’t have time anymore ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  40. September 10, 2011 1:35 am

    Crepes for me. They have always been my favourite food, when I got out of hospital where I couldn’t eat for 2 days, my mom had to immediately make me some and I ate 11 of them, haha. I still do eat the occasionally, but nowadays I prefer pancakes and yes, I guess you could call them healthified. I went through phases with food, like for a while I ate cereal for breakfast every day, next it was Nutella, etc.

    • September 10, 2011 9:48 am

      I love crepes! My mom would always make them on the weekends when I was younger, and I loved them with cream cheese and jam. I’m gonna have to get the recipe from her and start making them myself, because I miss them!

      • September 11, 2011 5:34 am

        Flipping crepes in the air was one of the first kitchen skills I’ve learned, haha. When I was younger I always ate them with some kind of chocolate hazelnut spread (like Nutella), but nowadays I usually eat them (or pancakes aka ”American crepes”) with quark+fruit. Last time I tried them with Nutella and bilberries – delicious! They’re also crazy good with walnuts. ๐Ÿ˜€

        I’ve never had real mac’n’cheese, but I would love to try it, because I love pasta and I love cheese, so it seems like something right up my alley. Yesterday I stumbled upon this via foodgawker and my mouth is still watering!

  41. September 10, 2011 2:42 am

    My Mum’s macaroni cheese was so amazing, and I’m not even a huge cheese-lover! I miss that. Jam sandwiches totally remind me of being a kid. White bread, sugary jam, squished flat from being in my school bag all day – so good. And crumpets…toasted over the fire and then dripping with butter. Two things that I’d totally never choose to eat now, but they might have to make a reappearance, just for nostalgia’s sake.

  42. September 10, 2011 4:08 am

    Holy cow 6 days?! It’s gone by so quickly!
    MMMM I love mac n cheese. My mom makes an awesome version of it. I can never pass it up. As for making my own, I used to eat the velveeta mac n cheese EVERY DAY. That stuff was the bomb. It was so gooey and delicious. I think I went overboard on it and got tired of eating it, not ED related though. It was one of those “phases”
    It’s definitely a childhood favorite of mine I’ve been wanting to try Annie’s for awhile maybe I’ll give some a try!

  43. September 10, 2011 4:10 am

    Tinned vegetable soup and baked potatoes with cheese totally remind me of my younger self but I don’t really crave baked potatoes any more. I do love veggie soup as the ultimate comfort food but tend to make my own tastier version now!

  44. September 10, 2011 5:14 am

    I ate all kinds of things when I was younger, and I still do, but in middle school I ate tons and tons of granola!!! idk why, and i havent gotten necessarily healthier granola but i’ve switched from the carboard tasting store brand to he bear naked flavored kinds that come in a bag and homemade!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. September 10, 2011 5:21 am

    omg, you know what? I used to be a Mac&Cheese fiend too! For me it was Kraft…especially if they were shaped like Spiderman or the Rugrats or something! I haven’t craved mac&cheese since ED (maybe I would like it made with real cheese though – Kraft is most definitely fake haha), but last night as I was driving home, all I wanted for dinner was a big bowl of cheesy miniature spidermans! haha! you’ve now inspired me to either pick up a box of Annies….or find a recipe for some from-scratch cheezy noodles!

    Also I have to tell you that I tried to make a variation on your oatmeal concoction at breakfast yesterday…I really wanted the chocolate pudding part but I didn’t have any so I thought chocolate soy ice cream would be a good substitute…well, only till it melts. which is in about 10 seconds, of course, next to the hot oatmeal. lol! maybe pudding needs to go on my grocery list too…

  46. September 10, 2011 6:06 am

    LOVE Annie’s Mac! And hooray for recovery ๐Ÿ˜€

  47. September 10, 2011 6:47 am

    6 MORE DAYS!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to see the pictures and all the cute stuff you pick out while shopping! Exciting for you and and exciting for me! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Although I was not into the mac and cheese as much as you were when I was a kid, I have memories of it and all its glory whenever I decided to make it. The Kraft classic ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t like it as much now so I don’t fix it, but one of the childhood foods I do fix every once and a while are pancakes. I can’t ever remember having pancakes at my house, but whenever I slept over at a friends, that is what we would always have! Pancakes with peanut butter and powdered sugar…and syrup. I hadn’t had pancakes for 3 years until the other day after seeing some on a blog. The ones I made were a healthier version with chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚ and whole wheat and what not; but I am going to work my way up to the ones I saw on the blog. I have to get used to eating them again because they were an “off limits” food for so long.

    I think waiting 3 years made them taste so much better when I had them the other day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. September 10, 2011 7:16 am

    Ahhhh! You just made me want mac n’ cheese! I’m a fan of the blue box. You know, the 88-cent one. Soooo good. That brings back memories for me, as does my mom’s chili recipe, and her meatloaf. Makes me smile just thinking about it

  49. September 10, 2011 7:25 am

    I love macaroni and cheese! I’m sensitive to gluten now, and I was thrilled when I found a box of GF mac and cheese made by Annie’s the other day! I haven’t tried it yet, but fingers crossed it’s as good as Kraft used to taste. Haha! The joys of being a kid. I used to love putting a slice of American cheese on top of a croissant, and melting it in the microwave. So unhealthy. So delicious at the time. The concept of American cheese disgusts me now, and croissants have gluten, so I don’t think I’ll ever be having that snack again. I suppose a healthier version would be a grilled cheese sandwich on GF bread! Yum.

    Hmm I have to say though, I was never really a fan of mac and cheese. In fact I wasn’t much of a fan of pasta and I’m still not ha. Foods from childhood would be crisp (I think you call them chips?) sandwiches..haha so not healthy, baked potatoes with lots of cheese ๐Ÿ™‚ oh and crumpets for lunch (oh how very English LOL). I don’t really have any healthier versions of them these days…except for maybe sweet potatoes..I’m kinda glad anyway because I was a really picky child and hardly had any variation in my diet unlike these days yay ๐Ÿ™‚

  51. September 10, 2011 7:51 am

    iii, cant wait for the big move Amanda!! The time has really flyed by!

    It sounds so lovely to reunite with a childhood-friend, and that mac and cheese actually looks really really good! Mc and cheese isnt really a big thing in Norway, and I dont think I have ever tasted it before ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    All I can remember I loved as a child is dark chocolate. Not so much changed there ๐Ÿ˜› My mum used to hide the chocolate all over the house, but I always found it ๐Ÿ˜‰ And also I remember I made “yohurt-messes” with yoghurt and pieces of bread. Sounds weird, but it was my favorit breakfast for years!
    Enjoy your weeked love<3

    • September 10, 2011 1:46 pm

      Yogurt and bread actually sounds pretty darned tasty, and I’m so tempted to give it a go to see what it’s like! I love yogurt and cereal/oatmeal, so why not bread? ๐Ÿ˜€

  52. September 10, 2011 8:09 am

    Ahh 6 daysssssss! I am so thrilled for you ๐Ÿ™‚
    I used to love that Mac and Cheese brand when I was younger too! I always asked my mom to add in extra cheese/milk to make it basically a cream with some pieces of pasta thrown in there… healthy for sure. I also liked the Kraft Mac and Cheese too… such an unnatural orange color that was just so darn good. My mom made it extra yummy by melting extra cheese into the sauce before serving it with the pasta ๐Ÿ˜€
    Can’t say I have had anything like that in years! Too “afraid.” That is total crap though, and I really ought to change such fears…bring on the Mac!

  53. September 10, 2011 8:12 am

    Childhood memory food for me was hot dogs! However, now I don’t eat pork and well, if you see the junk they throw in there…

    However, we’ve been thinking about doing the chicken sausage splurge ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I actually have a box of Annie’s Mac sitting in my pantry right now…perhaps I’ll have to go and dig into it now..

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

  54. September 10, 2011 8:25 am

    Yay! I’m so happy that you’re able to love an old friend once again :). I recently found a gluten free, dairy free (though definitely not calorie free..) version of mac and cheese and I devoured it quite fast..:p. I used to adore KD as a kid though.

  56. September 10, 2011 9:17 am

    Yay only 6 days!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m so exited for you! I used to be the exact same way as a kid haha. Mac and cheese was the only thing I was able to cook so I ate it all the time. Oh and those ramen noodles too. I haven’t had either of them in so long. I might have to look up a non-cheesy recipe version of Mac&Cheese ๐Ÿ˜€

  57. September 10, 2011 9:56 am

    Ohhhh my goodness….I love mac ‘n cheese!!!! I can totally see how mac ‘n cheese would bring the childhood memories back, I would also think that perogies remind me of childhood with bbq’d burgers…LOL! I never eat any anymore ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  58. September 10, 2011 12:39 pm

    Okay this is going to sound weird but I use to like mac and cheese with ketchup! LOL Im such a ketchup queen ๐Ÿ™‚ I put it on everything. I’ll eat small portions of ‘healthier’ mac and cheese now. Its a big challenge but ive one it, nothing happens. It tastes okay! Not as good as the kraft crap of course but that’s just my opinion.

      Haha actually that’s not weird at all. I eat mac and cheese with ketchup too ๐Ÿ˜‰ That’s exactly what I added to my bowl after pics were taken ๐Ÿ˜€ And it. is. fabulous.

    I was never a huge mac and cheese fan, but this post is actually making me crave it!

    When I was younger I was obsessed with tortellini and alfredo sauce but it definitely got put on the blacklist when the ED kicked in. ๐Ÿ˜› I don’t really eat alfredo sauce much anymore, but I love ravioli/tortellini with marinara sauce now!

    I can’t believe it’s only 6 days now! How exciting!
    I love mac & cheese. It’s one of my all time favourites (and I’m a big pasta fan!)

    eee, Only 6 days left? Wow- those days really flew by! excitingg ๐Ÿ™‚
    And I think it may just be my imagination, but mac and cheese is just that much better in shell form that macaroni shaped. THe shells catch more of the cheese and its just oh so delicious ๐Ÿ˜›

    I think Mac’n’cheese must be a really american/canadian thing…or my Irish family just wasnt fond of it! I definitely had it once or twice but what i would associate more as being a childhood meal is Spaghetti Bolognaise! I havent had it in around 3 years (due to ED) but i know i used to LOVE it. We had it every Monday after Brownies (i think you guys call it scouts or something?)
    Defo wana try that again. Great post! xx

    Wow, so exciting that you only have 6 more days until you move! That’s awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I definitely have a soft spot in my heart for mac and cheese. And I tend to gravitate towards it when I’m in the need for some comfort food.

    Good luck packing and with the whole moving process! I wish you well in this transition. Lots of love to you โค
