Who says macaroni and cheese has to be boring?

"Orange Macro Macaroni" and Cheese by D Sharon Pruitt

Yesterday, my friends and I went to a small restaurant in Monroe, Connecticut called Mac Daddy’s. If you live in the CT area, I highly recommend checking it out. Here’s what it’s like:

The entire menu–other than cookies and potato chips– is only macaroni and cheese. However, that doesn’t mean there’s no selection. For the little kid in you, you can get mac n cheese mixed with hot dogs. If you want an adult twist on the child favorite, try it mixed with spinach, mushrooms, onions, or even lobster. Really, this place is ingenious.

It was my second time there, and I opted to get the same option as last time, the pulled pork mac n cheese. My friend, who’s tried about six of their flavors, said this was probably the best one so far, and I love it–a perfect blend of BBQ sauce, cheese, meat, and noodles.

I mean, mac and cheese is awesome anyway. Most kids love it, and even if they won’t eat anything else, you can always rely on this staple. College kids eat it because it’s quick and delicious. In fact, whenever I had to go to a potluck dinner, I usually prepared this dish, because it’s so yummy and so easy!

But then you add in some crazy ingredients, creative combos, cute names such as “Mac Gobble Gobble”, and you’ve got a great business idea. Yes, the instant Kraft stuff is cheap and easy, and these prices range from $5 to $13 for a small–but it’s worth it. Great novelty idea, and good to return to try other flavors. And don’t let the small “snack size” fool you. It’s enough…and comes out actually in the pan for you to eat right away. mmmm.
