Lessons Learned

I learned some very valuable lessons yesterday, and all after putting my macaroni and cheese noodles into the boiling water:

1. I do not, as I had previously thought, own a colander.
2. I do, in fact, own a heating pan from the 70's (donated by previous owners)
3. Soy milk, when spoiled, smells very bad.
4. Water is a poor substitute for milk in macaroni and cheese
5. More butter does not solve the problem mentioned in number 4.
6. More Ketchup does not solve the problem mentioned in number 5.
7. I have to get a better paying job to get some decent food.


Cheers.

In lieu of milk...yogurt works...it just gives it a tangy flavor...

I have also made it with ranch dressing...

Reading your newly learned lessons reminded me of the famous words of Jimmy Dugan:

"That's good advice!"

Yep, all good things to know.

When I was an economically challenged college student at certain feeding times cereal was the meal of choice, specifically Captain Crunch. The cafeteria would on occasion be out of milk so we would use water instead. It does make one appreciate the unique gifts in which cows bring.

Wow, Andy. I love mac and cheese just as much as the next guy. But if you're going to do it, you gotta do it right. If you need a some extra funds for the food bank, just let me know.

Also, a little bit of garlic and parsley taste yummy in mac and cheese. =)
