The New Home Economics

A mac & cheese alternative

Leave a comment

Problem: 2-year-old twins, when given boxed macaroni and cheese about once per week, become COMPLETELY OBSESSED with macaroni and don’t want to eat anything else.

Solution: Stop buying the boxed macaroni.  When desperation hits, cook up some pasta.  Toss it with some olive oil, sun dried tomatoes, a little parmesan cheese, garlic, and/or whatever you like and have on hand.  Or you could get fancy and make your own cheese sauce from scratch.  It’s maybe not the healthiest meal ever, but it’s not as processed, and they like it just fine.  (But they don’t like it so much that they obsess over it.  Is it the lack of cartoon characters?  I don’t know.)
