Mac n Cheese

The girls were thrilled when I choose “Say cheese “as my theme.

Mac n Cheese has been on the demand list for ages and so I had promised the girls. Now in my rush of jobs I forgot the “say cheese” is a kid friendly theme and did not remember my promise. When I realised it I made this Mac n Cheese with processed cheese and cheddar.

The girls are not too happy with the resulting Mac n Cheese but there are in-roads in it. I have kept the original recipe as it is for I feel it will taste better and plan to make it for them when I go to Chennai this month!
