Kraft Macaroni & Cheese – You know you LOVE it! (Giveaway ends 3/27/13)



As a mom to a pair of teenagers, its my responsibility to teach them how to fend for themselves for those times when my husband and I are not around, or when they are grown and on their own. So far our daughter has mastered doing laundry, but that is about it. When it comes to cooking they are still learning. My son can nuke a bowl of soup in the microwave (he won’t use the stove) and my daughter can open up a can of Tuna. Needless to say they have A LOT to learn.

When I was about 9 or 10 years old I learned to cook my first food – Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. In fact, that is the first thing my sister learned to make as well as my father (Mac & Cheese is just about the only thing my father can make for dinner too – LOL).

Why Kraft Macaroni & Cheese? Because it’s easy to make. All you need to do is measure out the water, boil it, drain it and add in the mix, milk and butter (optional). It’s a great way to teach someone the most simplest thing to do – boil water. Reading directions and measuring out the water and other ingredients is an easy lesson in following directions and measuring too.

Probably the #1 reason why making Kraft Macaroni & Cheese is always the first thing we learn to make in our family is because we love it. We all love it! From my young nephew to my grandfather – Kraft Macaroni & Cheese is one food we all love. It’s hard not to love the ooey gooey cheesy goodness. Mmmm…

Did you know that Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner is celebrating 75 years? It was first introduced in 1937. Wow! That is a long time ago. I’m sure Kraft Macaroni & Cheese was just as loved then as it is now.

I grew up on the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese in the box. Over the years they have expanded their line to include shapes and characters, cups and bowls.

My kids like the SpongeBob and Phineas & Ferb shaped mac and cheese shapes. They insist that they taste different than the regular noodles. I don’t know about that. I think they taste the same.

I really like the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Homestyle bowls. They make for a quick and easy lunch. I especially like the Southwest Tortilla variety with the crunchy tortillas you use to top off the mac and cheese. Yummy!

My family is not the only family to love Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. I know families across the country do too. In fact, Kraft created these funny videos to show just how much some people will go, especially parents, to get the mac and cheese away from their kids. 🙂

I love the looks on the faces of the ladies at the book club. Talk about awkward. LOL!
