Rice Krispie Treats, mac n cheese and the flu
Why do I always cook and bake when I’m sick? Do NOT eat anything I bring in to work tomorrow…I can guarantee I sneezed in it just a little bit.
I made stovetop Mac and cheese from scratch, broccoli, chicken, Rice Krispie treats and egg salad for lunch tomorrow. Can’t taste any of it. Bleh. Why bother eating, I say?
The Mac and cheese is super easy in case you were wondering. Cook some elbow pasta, like a 1/2 poundish…when its draining add a knob of butter and maybe a tablespoon of flour to the pan and whisk until its smooth. Then add almost a cup of milk. Let it bubble while whisking constantly for like 2 to 3 minutes til thick. Turn off heat. Then add about (gasp) 6-8 slices of American cheese. Melt and stir. You can use other cheeses as well. Then I add about a teaspoon of Worcestershire, salt, pepper and sometimes garlic powder. A tiny dab of good mustard will also boost the cheesiness. Jack ate 2 huge helpings.
He lost interest in helping with the dessert.
me: I’m ready to make the Rice Krispie treats. Wanna help?
Jack: (already engrossed in an episode of Good Luck Charlie) Nahhh..,
Jack: It’s ok. If you make them really good I’ll say thank you!
