Mac n Cheese

Happy National Mac n Cheese Day! Did you know, today 7/14 is the day to enjoy the American Soul Food: Mac n cheese! 

When I arrived in the US, I was surprised that they were kids’ meals. After more than 10 years later, I was surprised again to hear that they are the typical side dish for thanksgiving dinner. My dinner buddy and I prefer tomato sauce pasta, so we weren’t that interested in Mac n Cheese, but if this is the special day for them, we gotta enjoy it too!

Mmm, this is the ultimate favorite food for cheese lovers, huh!? 

Even though it’s a typical kid’s meal, I don’t feel weird that adults still eat them. They are just like Natto Gohan, right?;)


Happy National Mac n Cheese Day, everyone:)
