Try It Tuesday, November 29th

So sorry that I did not post last week, but with preparations for Thanksgiving and such, I did not get around to trying something new with my smoothies or anything else.  So my original plan was to continue with the smoothies, but today I tried something new and decided I would blog about it instead.  We purchased this macaroni and cheese from Costco.  

Side note here, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE macaroni and cheese.  As a small child, I could tell if it wasn't Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.  Honestly, I know it frustrated some of my family greatly.  After my son came along, we switched from the "blue box" to Velveeta Shells and Cheese.  I've tried some of the generics and they are not all bad.  But I have really been trying to move towards real food.   What first attracted this to me?  I would have to say the price and amount in the box.  I've bought the organic options before and they are expensive.  After looking at the ingredients list on this product, I like that it has wheat macaroni.  The Nutrition Facts are as follows:



While the cooking process is a little more tedious than the single serve packs of Kraft Easy Mac or Velveeta Shells and Cheese, but I have to say I do like it quite well.  Overall the microwave time is less than than the Easy Mac or Velveeta Shells and Cheese.  Typical cooking time for those is 3.5 minutes vs. 2.5 minutes for this one.  You just have to do 1.5, stir and then cook for another minute. It is a little thicker than I expected, but I did enjoy it greatly.  Overall, I would buy this again.
