You know that feeling, when you’re PMS-ish, or grumpy, or depressed, and you get one of those bizarre food cravings? Some days I simply have to have a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese (even though I normally prefer my macaroni made from scratch). I have no explanation for this phenomenon. But I have, on (very, very grumpy) occasions, been known to eat almost an entire box in one sitting.
I have one problem, though: I simply can’t eat it when it’s leftover. I think it’s utterly vile when reheated. I’ve tried several experiments — I tried adding American cheese. I tried cheddar. Nothing worked.
Then, tonight, I made a discovery. Before I reheated it, I poured a little milk into the leftover macaroni, and then microwaved it. Of course it pooled into the bottom, but I stirred it up with my fork, and it assimilated. It was just like it was made fresh!! I HAD RESURRECTED THE KRAFT MACARONI! I’ll never hate leftover macaroni again.
Of course, this also means that I no longer have a valid reason to eat the whole box.
