TODAY IS MAC & CHEESE DAY
There are few things in life that bring us back to childhood like the taste of macaroni and cheese, its rich flavorful combination of pasta and rich cheeses never fails to satisfy our palette. Mac & Cheese Day celebrates this dish and everything it means to us.
Mac & Cheese is one of the ultimate comfort foods. Typically made with the golden goodness of cheese, combined with milk or cheese and macaroni noodles, there is no denying that mac and cheese never fails to satisfy. This meal reminds a lot of people of one of the first dishes they created at home.
