Use your noodle

A couple of nights ago I was late getting dinner going and needed something quick. The kids were already disappointed that we were not going to be eating out, so I needed something fun. When we do go out they frequently order Mac and Cheese which really irritates me. I don't like paying $4.00 for half a box of something sitting in my cupboard at home. So, I decided to to take a cue from my children and serve Mac & Cheese, but make it a little fancier than normal.
I used the packet of cheese from the box.
I bagged the regular noodles. Replaced it with 1 1/4 cup mini bowtie noodles. (next time I will increase the bowties to 1 1/2 cups.)

Follow directions on box.


I served crystal light in fancy goblets.



There you have it. It's the same, but different.

Did the kids love it?

They did love it. They thought they were getting something extra special.

I forgot to mention that the regular noodles can be use in a soup later or served with butter, salt and peper.
